1. In Buddi version 3.4.0.7 the pluggins were not working. I deleted all the installed pluggins and then attempted to reinstall the latest versions. The pluggins would not install and I got the following error message: "There are no Buddi pluggins in this jar file, or there was a problem loading the pluggins. Ensure you have selected a valid pluggin file."

2. For pluggin installation -
a. In Buddi preferences, choose the Pluggin tab.
b. Click the "Add" button.
c. Navigate to the folder containing the unzipped pluggin file to be installed.
d. Click on the pluggin.
e. Click "Open".

3. I see the error message. And the pluggins do not install.
4. I want the pluggins to install. I also want them to work. Prior to removing the old QIF pluggin, it would not import a QIF file. When trying to install the new pluggin, thinking that the old version was the problem, the new pluggin would not install.

    Keep in mind that Buddi version 3.4.0.4 was installed first with the pluggins. I then updated to Buddi version 3.4.0.7. At that time the pluggins did not work. I then deleted the pluggins and attempted to install the latest versions, thinking that was the problem. The pluggins would not install.

    After reading the note about Java incompatibility in the Tutorial How-To Pluggin section of the Buddi website, I tried reinstalling the older version of the QIF Import pluggin (3.0.0.4). Version 3.0.0.4 installed, though, it would work under Buddi version 3.4.0.7.

    Resolved the problem with pluggins failing to install/work by reverting to Buddi version (3.4.0.3 dev) and using older version of pluggins. It appears Buddi fails to work on Mac OS X beginning with version 3.4.0.4. I suspect this is due to a change to Java 6 in its development. A 32 bit version of Java 6 appears to be unavailable for Mac OS X.
