How do I install and configure Library Loader?

    For me, this breaks at step 5. When I click on Settings, Library loader complains "Unable to launch/connect to DesignSpark PCB"

    I've tried re-installing DesignSpark PCB and rebooting, to no avail.  I'm on Windows 7.  It actually does launch DesignSpark PCB at that point, if it's not already running, so it seems to know where it is.

    @Chuck, what step did you have issues understanding?

    The above only has to be configured once.
    1. Map to your download folder.
    2. Select your library to download to.
    3. Select your ECAD tool.
    4. Use the Component Search Engine.

    After this your components you download are automatically detected by Library Loader in your download folder, extracted from the zip file, placed in you selected library and attached to pointer for placement on the schematic

    @Charles, this may have been the issue reported for v9 in the Status FAQ which is now resolved.
    For any version of DSPCB if Library Loader is not interfacing correctly to DSPCB, then close Library Loader and DSPCB, now launch DSPCB by a right click and selecting "Run as Admin". now close DSPCB. These steps ensure the Windows OLE is registered correctly for DSPCB.
    Now launch DSPCB and Library Loader as normal and they will communicate correctly.

    I tried running DSPCB as administrator, but still get the same message when I click Settings:

    I'm running DSPCB v9.0.1 and Library Loader V2.45, on Win 7 Pro, SP1.  Both DSPCB and Library Loader are installed in C:\Program Files (x86).
