Hi Christian what about the procedure including MBS plugins in a xojo projects?
Appcast creator project for example requires ms5stringmbs function included in encryption plugin but importing nothing happen

You need to copy the required plugins into the plugins folder in your Xojo folder.
See Installation.pdf.

It may be convenient to first copy all plugins, build your app and check what plugins are used in the compiled app.

Ok worked but when i create setup using innosetup i got an error on the client plugin related.
