Any word on this? It's really frustrating!!

I'm using Vista and as far as i can tell everything is the latest version.

I was able to fix this for one of my Windows 7 x64 machines by uninstalling the plugin (running the Pixelpipe-for-LiveGallery.msi and selecting "remove"), right clicking the installer and selecting "Troubleshoot compatibility", and then clicking "start" in the troubleshooter when instructed to re-install.

However, these same steps did not work for another Windows 7 x64 machine with Windows Live Photo Gallery installed.

Thanks for the instructions on the workaround. We stopped supporting Live Gallery sometime ago so it's a wonder this works at all.

Really disappointing that PixelPipe stopped supporting Windows Live Photo Gallery. Seems like that's something you could charge *vendors* for. I use it to upload to snapfish and shutterfly. Seems like they might pay you instead of them needing to build their own plug-ins.
