The Xojo Plugins Folder

Xojo ships with 5 database plugins in the Plugins folder. These plugins are what you use to connect to the following database servers and ODBC:

  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • MySQL
  • Oracle
  • PostgreSQL

The ODBC database plugin allows you to connect to any database engine that supports ODBC connections.

When you download a new version of Xojo, you may want to take a moment to remove any plugins from the Plugins folder that you don’t use in your projects. Doing this makes Xojo launch, run and build just a little bit faster.

Also, remember that Xojo has an Office Automation plugin for automating Microsoft Office apps. More information on that can be found in our Office documentation. If you want to use the Office Automation plugin, move it from the Xojo Extras folder to the Plugins folder so that Xojo can load the plugin when launching.

If you use any 3rd partly plugins in your projects you will also need to move those into the Plugins folder when you download a new version of Xojo.
