We got a new PC so we configured it and installed FileMaker v18.
The FileMaker worked fine.

We then installed the PrinterSwitch v3 (),which did show up in the
FileMaker -Edit -Preference... -Plug-in tab. But I was not able to 'check it'
and the 'Configure...' button is dimmed.

* I also un-install and re-install the PrinterSwitch via -Control Panel -Program and Features

Any idea?

* I also

    OK. Just did it on my own machine - I unchecked the PrinterSwitch in the Plug-in tag and now I can't check it again. How do I get it back?

    The time I unchecked it on the new PC is because I notice the PrinterSwitch does not work - it gives me error when calling one of the PrinterSwitch function and my thought
    was that this might reset the PrinterSwitch and get it to work (I believe I did that before).

    Anyway, How can I get it back to work?

    Additional info:
    The FileMaker files are served from FileMaker server.

    OK. Issue resolved by uninstall FileMaker, PrinterSwitch, and then re-install FileMaker and PrinterSwitch. Of cause, I don't dare to un-check it again.
