    lambosprit, i installed the plugin via installer...
    my RR wont even load the plugin..

    OS win7 x64....

    did you build this as ANYCPU? or x86?

    the installer is doing the regasm (cause i see a .tlb)
    when i do a manual regasm, its full of warnings
    might be nothing... i dont know

    Type library exporter warning: Referenced type is defined in managed component,
    which is imported from a type library that could not be loaded because it was no
    t registered (type: 'SKYPE4COMLib.Call'; component: 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Ride
    Runner\Plugins\RRSkype\Interop.SKYPE4COMLib.dll').
    -Thanks

    more info, after finding the download for skype4comm.dll and installing that into system32(syswow64)
    now the plugin registers correctly
    but RR crashes in the plugin (directory not found)
    need some better error handling there
    -Thanks

    Never tried running it against either windows 7 or 64 bit so not surprised it doesn't work. I have dabbled in making my apps 64bit compatable but gave up as I never use it my self and seems to have a low user requirement.

    Does it say what directory? Did you look in the debug log? Again if its windows 7 I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't work.

    no, it doesnt say which directory...


    dont blame win7 please
    and dont blame x64!!

    there is no debug log...
    so its not making it that far

    ok, i do debugging

    Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Program Files (x86)\RideRunner\Logs\RRSkypeDebug.log'

    prob TraceLogger not creating the path, before the streamwriter

    BUT id like it fixed more

    could you please fix you plugin to not violate UAC (not that i have it on)
    you are not allowed/susposed to write into the %program files% path
    please use the path supplied to you by RideRunner in the initialize method
    Public Sub Initialize(ByRef pluginDataPath As String)
    and look at the example, you need to check if the path exists for 1st run
    and create... store any USER data there, and logs

    yes, consider moveing some stuff out of your constructor, and into initialize method

    if you want some help, im here... i can help fix up, and then test in system

    the error is unrealted to win7 or x64, its just a dir dont exist when u try to create the log

    anyway... creating a LOG dir in riderunner... i now have skype
    -Thanks

    well..... it was... then RR started to crash, and it was the plugin
    so i uninstalled... when you build a new one, il try again
    you should have you installer, install and register skype4com.dll in system32, the installer if it supports x64 (and if it dont, get new installer) will put it in right place, and check its version, to make sure it doesnt overwrite newer one, and set it as a SHARED file, so its not uninstalled unless windows dll count is 0 (all handled by installer)

    ill revisit this...
    and find why it crashed, but i neeed to do work on RR, so i uninstalled
    (then forgot about it)

    This is what I've been spending most of my time on. I don't want to just install the skype4com in case it screws up the users skype, I know its not likely on a car pc but most people test on their home pc so its worth considering.
    I can get it to use the version I want by setting the dll to isolated in my .net references which keeps it separate from any other version and doesn't need to be registered.....sounds perfect right....trouble is the calling exe needs to know about the dll not just my dll. Is there anyway RR could be changed to allow this. It would have to read a manafest but other than that I'm not sure how it works.

    This is probably too complicated and I'll just have to do it through the installer but its worth a shot
