InspectorPro 7 Windows Failed to Import

I have InspectorPro 6, and decided to try version 7.
However, I always get error dialog "Failed to Import" "Please provide a folder with any localized summary.xml file".
The InspectorPro plugin shows registered, and InspectorSupport folder is in extension directory.
I have tried various locations for DDR folder.
My Filemaker is 18.02.209.
When I run InspectorPro.fmp12 on MacOS with copy of DDR it works fine. (Same version of Filemaker.)
I can also copy subsequent InspectorPro.fmp12 back to Windows and am able to view analysis.

I like this new version, and look forward to upgrading once this issue is resolved

    Hi There,

    Sounds like you have it hosted on a FileMaker 18 server. Can you explain your set up a little bit more.

    Can you tell me what build number you are using of InspectorPro 7.

    The databases are hosted on FileMaker Server, though after generating the DDR I am running InspectorPro locally (i.e. not hosted on the server) after closing FileMaker and opening it only with InspectorPro.fp12 on drive C: of the Windows system, or my Documents folder on MacOS.
    The build number of InspectorPro is 56.

    Let me know if you need more details.

    Do you have time to do a screen share on Monday to see what we can figure out.

    I am on BST (UTC+1).
    Any time after 15:00 up to late(ish) is fine.
    Suggest a window and I will block it off.
    I already have TeamViewer installed, if that suits.

    I have resolved this.
    It seems InspectorPro plugin looks for InspectorSupport folder only in "C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Pro 18 Advanced\Extensions" rather than alongside the plugin in "C:\Users\xxxxx\AppData\Local\FileMaker\FileMaker Pro Advanced\18.0\Extensions" as specified by "Reveal Plug-in Folder" button (and documentation).
