Plugin-Development on Windows7

Postby christ23 » Tue Nov 27, 2012 8:52 am

Hi folks,

i have developed some C# plugins with the delphi bridge.
The plugins are running fine on WinXP. But now we are actually migrating to Win7 - and now, my plugins are not recognized by IA, even if the registry entries are set.

Do you have any ideas why this problem occures, and maybe have a workaround for that issue?

Edit: What confuses me too, is that the other plugins (md/camelot) like WRITELOG are recognized, but not listed beneath my plugin in the registry (see screenshot).

Dear Christ23,

are you testing your plugin on x64 OS?

If true, are you sure your Registry Keys are placed under "Wow6432Node"?

Example: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\MimarSinan\InstallAware\2.0\Plug-Ins\MyPlugin"

Regards.

Dear Francesco,
