I think that was a mixup while building the installer, on my part, that led
to including a library built with VisualStudio 9 Express. I fixed this in a
new installer (beta 6) that I just posted on the downloads page (to replace
the older one for VisualStudio 8Pro). I'd really appreciate if you can
retest the plugin and let me know how it goes. This was also reported by

Yes that is correct: I installed using OpenSim-2.2.0-b5win32-VC8P.exe.
I am using VS8 Pro, and I all plugin dlls are stored in C:\Program
Files\OpenSim 2.2\plugins. I have also added this to the path.
I am using Windows Vista, but I doubt that has anything to do with the
problem as everything worked fine in beta 4. I don't have depends.exe
but I can look into getting and trying it.
