Plugins not loaded on some XP systems

Hi,

I've developed two custom plugins for achieving various extra functionality.

On all Windows 7 systems the plugins seem to work great. On my Windows XP system it also works fine. On my Windows XP VM and the clients Windows XP system it doesn't work either.

I've looked in the temp folders of a working system and a non-working system and there are two additional files in the working systems:

NetShim.dll.MyPlugin1
NetShim.dll.MyPlugin2

Clearly there is some reason the plugins aren't getting started up... anyone know what I can do to try and fix this?

Many thanks

Just to update this... We fixed it by installing 2.0, 3.0, 3.5 & 4.0 .Net frameworks.

Thanks.

Sounds like you haven´t installed the .NET runtime on those machines?

I was _sure_ there was no reply/followup when I replied...

Yeah, if you write your plugin using .NET the NetShim DLL is packaged with your plugin automatically, but you still need to make sure .NET is installed on the target machine. The NetShim DLL is just there to let your .NET plugin talk to the rest of SWF Studio (which is all unmanaged code).
