Ijust downloaded the Plugin for Plugin Galaxy, and I have checked under "file, preferences, file locations" and that is exactly where it was downloaded to, but Plugin Galaxy is not there. I have no idea where it went to, but nothing shows in my plug ins. Why is Plugin Galaxy not coming up in my Plugins? I have never had this problem before, I am running PSP 7.0 Tenth anniversary edition which has eye candy, Flaming Pear, and Virtual Painter included on it. I don't understand why I am having problems with Plugin Galaxy. Its not like I haven't downloaded other plugins before. But as I said, for some reason Plugin Galaxy just won't show up.

I had PG installed on my old computer before the motherboard went out and I lost everything (the computer shorted out my harddrive somehow and I lost everything that was on my hard drive at the same time I was told). So I was hoping to get Plugin Galaxy back on my computer, but it seems like it's not meant to be.

Thank you for any help I can get with this.

Sounds like you didn't install Plugin Galaxy and only placed a path to the installation file in PSP. If I am correct, please double click the downloaded file to run the installation.

hi, I tried installing it again, and this time where it says "show extracted files" I left that there, and I looked to make sure it was there, and it was, so I reopened PSP 7 and opened up a picture to try it on, and its still not there. For some reason its just not coming up. I don't understand why its not working for me.

Sorry, I have no idea what you mean with that sentance.

Anyway, did you look for "The Plugin Site" sub menu? That's were the Plugin Galaxy plugins are located.

when I do properties for what I downloaded, this is what is says:

Pg150DEMO.zip

I assume thats what is the Plugin galaxy zip, which I then unzipped and installed in the plugin for my PSP.

As for the other thing I mentioned, you know when you unzip something a box will come up saying

"Extraction complete, Files have been successfully extracted from the ZIP archive.

Files have been successfully extracted to the following directory:

C:\Program Files\JascSoftwareInc....\Plugins

To see your extracted Files, check the box below:

___ Show Extracted Files
Press Finish to Continue

Back Finish Cancel

Thats what I was referring to. Sorry for the confusion.

Btw, thats what it says when I reinstalled it again, and it shows where the unzipped file went to. So it shows its in the correct place, at least I believe it is, but when I reopen PSP its not there.

Thank you.

After you unzipped Pg150DEMO.zip, you need to run Pg150DEMO.exe. During installation you have to choose:
C:\Program Files\JascSoftwareInc....\Plugins

So you missed the installation step and only unzipped the installation file to your plugins folder.
