Source Community Plugin

Question:

I can’t seem to load Source community plugins and get the error

"Failed to load plugin C:\Program Files\eWater\Source 3.4.3.486\Plugins\LASCAM.dll. Failed to load plugin. This may be due to file being 'blocked' by Windows for security reasons. Please see Source documentation for more details."



Answer:

Your IT department may have blocked your ability to install software. If you downloading community plugins then you will need to manually 'unblock' the dll's in Windows after downloading.

To do this, right click on the dll file in windows explorer and select properties. At the bottom of this window will be comment along the lines of 'this file has been downloaded from the internet and has been blocked to protect this computer'. There should be an 'unblock' button next to the warning. Click unblock and then click ok. The plugin should then load.
