Briefcase Install For Cloud Service

To help you set up Briefcase we've prepared a series of short videos. If you are unsure about any of these instructions please contact our support team for assistance.

The FileMaker Pro database engine is required on all workstations for Briefcase to work. If you are installing on multiple computers we recommend downloading the FileMaker Pro install file once, and distributing the installer over your network to avoid unnecessary downloading. Follow the instructions below for installing FileMaker Pro, and then the instructions for installing Briefcase.

Otherwise, the Briefcase installer will download and install the FileMaker Pro database software required by Briefcase. In this case, you should skip the FileMaker Pro install instructions below, and follow the Briefcase install instructions only.

The download links for both FileMaker Pro and Briefcase are available on the Resources tab of the My Account section of the Briefcase website.
