Are you testing it with 64-bit windows? My guess is based on registry
name. Is it possible to run gst in 64-bit win?
dscapture library is developed and tested with 32-bit. So there should be
problems with 64-bit windows.
I have copied all plugins in the same directory and added GST_PLUGIN_PATH
environment variable to point there. There is possibility to pass
--gst-plugin-path=path_to_plugins to the program from commandline. I
haven't tested this with inpect or launch.
Sometimes in windows I have had to remove whole registry file because it
has gone broken.
Anyway tell your experiences to me.. ..and pathes are welcome too.
