Plugin has no external configuration utility?

Postby DISRUPTOR » Sat Apr 18, 2009 1:58 am

When i go to configure the plugin for 3rd person i get this error
"Plugin has no external configuration utility"
I have never had this problem before but i just had to reboot my system after a crash. I tried to download the plungin again from the AM home page but there is no option. What should i do?

Could it be that you have clicked on "configure the selected plugin", and not only checked the box next to it in the Project Properties? This triggers this message.

EDIT
Just checked. Make sure you highlight the plugin and then click "configure the selected plugin". If you don't highlight it, then you'll get the message you mentioned.

The 3rd person plugin is not on the list in the Project Properties?
Are the other plugins on the list there?

Hmmm, if it doesn't appear on the list and the others do appear, I can't think of anything else than to make a back up of your project, de-install and re-install AM.

The disk :?:
AM doesn't come on a disk.
So you don't have the registration info?
If you have it, then you can just download AM again, and go through the registration process again.
