Windows 7 and plugins

Postby peepsgrandma » Tue Dec 08, 2009 9:08 pm

I was able to use a lot of my plugins in Vista 64 by running it as windows xp compatible but only after I installed the dll's my instructer said were required to run them in Vista, well I am one of those people who hated Vista and swithched to Windows 7, 64 bit and none of them will work. Are there different dll's for windows 7 or are they all useless now?

The 64-bit versions of Vista/Window 7 require you to install 32-bit DLLs in the SysWOW64 sub folder of the Windows folder.

Additionally some plugin may require that you change your DEP settings. See here: ... n-settings

If that does not help, please be more specific about what you mean with "none of them will work".
