I've just installed Maxim DL (4.58) under 64-bit Windows-7.



When I try to load a plug-in, any plug-in, I get the following error message -



"The selected file does not contain a valid plug-in object".



Do I need different versions of the plug-ins for 64-bit Windows-7?

The version you are running is too old to be fully compatible with Windows 7. I

believe the problem is that it can't perform COM registration because it

requires UAC elevation. Do the following:



Right-click on the MaxIm DL icon and select Run As Administrator.



You should then be able to successfully register the plug-in. Hopefully.



I've not tested this so no guarantees. If it doesn't work you'll have to

upgrade to get this function to work under Windows 7.

I tried that, but it made no difference. I'll have to think about the upgrade then ...
