Just dl'd but when I go to settings>plugins>lazysearch>settings
I get

404 Not Found: settings/plugins/LazySearch2/settings/basic.html

Running Windows XP and squeezecenter 7.2.1
I dl'd the plugin to desktop
extracted with winzip
Instructions say:
2. Extract the ZIP file (being sure to preserve the paths in the ZIP file), and
copy the resulting LazySearch2 directory to your SqueezeCenter plugins
directory.
When I open the desktop folder I don't see a Lazysearch directory and have no idea what the direction "being sure to preserve the paths in the ZIP file" means.
Help!
Steve

When you extract the ZIP file you should get a single "LazySearch2"
folder - eg drag it to the desktop.

Move that folder into your plugins folder. On Windows I think that means
you have to move it into "C:\Program Files\SqueezeCenter\Server\Plugins".

Then, restart SqueezeCenter (or reboot your computer).

If it's still giving that 404 error take a look here:

Did as suggested and still have the 404 error. Went to the how-to and found the cache file but befor clearing wanted to be sure that it is just a holding area. There are many things in it and I don't want to clear something that is needed in another plugin or folder. Is it safe to just delete everything in "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\SqueezeCenter\Cache"?
This folder includes things like:
MySql
artwork
slimserver album review
filecache
Delete it all?
Thanks
Steve

If you've stopped SqueezeCenter then by deleting the contents of this I
believe you'll clear your database (but your music files won't be
affected), so you'll have to rescan, and your SqueezeCenter and player
preferences may need to be reset, so that may be a little drastic.

If you wanted to start by trying just deleting the contents of the
plugin-data.yaml and the prefs/plugin/lazysearch2.prefs file as well
then you'll not lose anything as that data is rebuilt when you restart
the server.

If you're unsure then I would recommend moving the contents of that
folder somewhere else instead of just deleting it - that way you could
always move it back again.

How many files are there in the extracted LazySearch2 folder? There should be 6 files and 1 folder.

Try downloading the plugin using Firefox or Opera, there's very often a problem when using IE to download these plugins!

Trying to fine "prefs/plugin/lazysearch2.prefs " to delete but haven't found it yet.

Thanks again.

Maybe: C/Documents and Settings/All Users/Application Data/SqueezeCenter/Prefs/Plugin
