I recently installed KiCAD on a new Windows 10 PC. I downloaded the latest official build available (64 bit).
Everything works great, minus the plugins. I wanted to create a QRcode, and I see I have the kicad_qrcode.py file under C:\Program Files\KiCad\bin\scripting\plugins. But I see no plugins in Pcbnew, under Tools, External Plugins, even after hitting refresh multiple times. I tried searching past community posts, but nothing helped. HEre are my build details
Version: (5.1.7)-1, release build
libcurl/7.71.0 OpenSSL/1.1.1g (Schannel) zlib/1.2.11 brotli/1.0.7 libidn2/2.3.0 libpsl/0.21.0 (+libidn2/2.3.0) libssh2/1.9.0 nghttp2/1.41.0
Platform: Windows 8 (build 9200), 64-bit edition, 64 bit, Little endian, wxMSW
wxWidgets: 3.0.5 (wchar_t,wx containers,compatible with 2.8)
OpenCASCADE Community Edition: 6.9.1
Compiler: GCC 10.2.0 with C++ ABI 1014
For what is worth, I have Python 3 installed on this machine, but I see that if I execute the Scripting Console, I can see that one is using Python 2.7.18.
What am I doing wrong?
