Do I need to upgrade FileMaker?

In order to continue using CCD after 31/12/2019 you will need to purchase FileMaker 15 licences direct from FileMaker before 20/09/2019 to replace your currently installed versions.

If you are using CCD version 4.4 or 4.5 you will need to uninstall your FileMaker software and replace with FileMaker 15.

If you are using CCD version 4.0 to 4.3.3 you will need to uninstall the FileMaker software and replace with your purchased copies of FileMaker 15. 

You will then need to run your CD4 databases through the conversion routine to allow it to run under FileMaker 15

IMPORTANT NOTE: FileMaker version 15 is required to run the CCD Long-Term licence.  If a later FileMaker version is purchased, CCD will not operate correctly or in the expected way.

Support for FileMaker 15 runs to 20th September 2019, after which time this version is no longer supported by FileMaker and therefore considered to be out of date software. 

It is expected that the CCD Long-Term licence will be used for reference only and a new CRM product will be used to support and run your business.


New FileMaker 15 licences are required for each machine that will be accessing CCD, including your server (if applicable).  If you are running CCD via RDP or Citrix you will need a FileMaker Pro licence for each user accessing CCD. FileMaker offer the option to purchase perpetual licences i.e. pay a one-off fee or via Annual licences with an ongoing fee. A Server licence is supplied by FileMaker with a minimum of 5 FileMaker Pro licences.  

All licences should be purchased direct from FileMaker.  FileMaker 15 licences will only be available to purchase up to the 20th September 2019 and should be purchased at least 48 hours in advance of this date to ensure there is sufficient time to process your order.

There are two ways to purchase your FileMaker 15 server and/or pro licences;
