I also considered the phidget encoder dll was not loading correctly, which is when I attached a log file in my message above. In fact, the phidget dll is failing to load.
WARNING: CPluginBag::GetPlugin - Could not load plugin (C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\StreetDeck\Plugins\Input\Input`sEncoder. dll)!
WARNING: UV_GetFolderList - The system cannot find the path specified.00000003
I'm hoping that may indicate the next step to trouble-shoot this issue.
Can you run this program on the .dll and let me know what you find.
That did the trick. What a fantastic program!
Turns out the missing link, pun intended, Phidget has recently updated their libraries. That must be why the link geekinc posted above is no longer valid.
At any rate, when I ran Dependency Checker I found phidgetencoderplugin.dll was looking for phidget20.dll. The Phidget library I installed -- downloaded a few weeks ago from Phidgets.com -- contains phidget21.dll. Going back Phidgets.com, there is actually a link to the previous version, what they call Flash Legacy libraries, otherwise known as ver20.
Installed up the legacy phidget library set, rebooted, and now I can see the phidget encoder plugin in StreetDeck. Taking my CarPC out to the car to verify the phidget itself is works correctly when I'm done with this post. Have no reason to think it wont.
Thanks much for the help. Just got back from a 16 hour drive yesterday and I'll tell ya, controlling the volume on screen is a far cry from the convenience of using a phidget volume knob (encoder).
Happy Camper.... er, CarPCer!!
Glad you got it figured out.
As of July 07, Phidget updated their library (to version to 2.1).

As of today's post date, the legacy ver 2.0 phidget library can be found here:
The driver can also be found here: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/down...?do=file&id=32
In case Phidget decides to remove it from their site.
