How-To fix pGina: “Warning: Current plugin selected could not be loaded!”

After installing pGina and the chosen plugins (i.e. LDAP Auth, LDAP Group, RADIUS) on Windows Vista or Windows 7, it may happen that trying to access the plugin configuration it results in an error loading the plugin with the following error message being returned:

"Warning: Current plugin selected could nor be loaded!
You may not be able to login using pGina!"
Warning: current plugin selected could not be loaded

Warning: current plugin selected could not be loaded

The most common reasons for such error are:

 

  1. The installed plugin is for a different architecture:According to your system you must choose to install the x86 (32 bits) or
    x64 (64 bits) version of the plugin.
    Some plugin may be released on a single version but this doesn’t imply that it will work for both the architectures.
  2. Otherwise it most probably happens the you are missing the installation of the Visual C++ 9.0 (2008) runtime libraries (VC90.CRT 2008):In this case you need simply to download the Microsoft Installer package from Microsoft’s site at

    x86: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=5582
    x64: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=2092

Applying one of these two fixes you should have resolved your problems otherwise you may consider to check the file permissions on the plugin files.
