    I am having an issue also. Can someone please tell me where the plugin files go for Chrome 4.1x when using Windows 7 x64?

    Please only answer if you actually know for sure - I have plenty of wrong answers already for previous versions of chrome...

    Thanks

    For normal Win7 it's in:
    %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\Plugins

    Though I guess I can't really say for certain where it is for 64 bit, but I don't really know why it'd be different.
    Just to be sure, this is for binary plugins (ie. DLLs on Windows), not for regular extensions. Chrome also looks in many other directories for plugins if you're looking for a specific one and it's not there. For instance, it looks in the Firefox plugins directory, and the specific install locations for known plugins like Flash.

    I think it's called Extensions instead of "plugins". FDM seemed to accept that folder...
