    I’ve posted already several posts on the subjects of plugins that after extracting them to the Plugins folder don’t show up in System Tool tab in Ninja 3.1. With no any response.

    Why is that?

    Right-click on archive with the program. Unblock, Unzip, enjoy.

    No matter what I do, I’m not able to log in: see 1.
    It’s a loop, I try to create a new password, then I get a link by mail from you: see 2.

    My plugins don’t work anymore either.  I even uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail.

    Hi M Lawrence, did you try to above steps recommended by Phobos?

    Marek, the password reset issue should now be fixed.

    This “solution” is annoying and shouldn’t be necessary, but it works. Many thanks, Phobos.

    Agreed. Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be much we can do about it, as it’s considered to be a “feature” of the new Windows SmartScreen.

    I’m having the same problem (can’t get plugins to appear) but the solution from Phobos doesn’t seem to work for me.

    I’m guessing I’m doing it wrongly but can I just check?

    It used to be that you just extracted the .dll and .png of the plugin (don’t keep them in their parent folder) into the plugins folder of system ninja. If you do this, the “additional tools” option of system ninja is just blank.

    If you delete these files (so the plugins folder is empty), system ninja reports “there are no plugins installed Download plugins” (“download plugins” is a hyperlink which works).

    I interpreted Phobos’s instructions as:

    1. right-click on the plugin .zip file
    2. “open with” system ninja
    3. click “yes” to the UAC prompt

    This doesn’t seem to do anything more than run system ninja. No plugins get added to the plugins folder.

    Do the plugin .zip files need to be in a particular location?

    Note: I did see a forum post about plugin problems after going to .NET 4 but that was Aug 2015 and it was implied that the problem was being attended to.

    Hi Gary, you should be righting clicking and going to the Properties screen. From there, click the button that says “Unblock” as shown in this screenshot.
