PC crashed. Loading up new pc so I downloaded latest 64 bit ver 9. Trying to install Registry plugin and I get a msg "the plugin probably needs some DLLs missing from your system". ????

Hi and welcome.

Yes, that how it works. Many applications need runtime DLLs to get all features they need. So that plugin too, as it seems by your message.
(Visit wikipedia for more info)



Problem is to know which runtime a special app needs, the author should know at least.
See Readme_eng.txt

v 5.0 - 15.07.2012
- Fixed: Search window does not disappear right after opening (x64 only)
- Fixed: Recompiled in VS2008 ...
- Fixed: Better work in some x64 systems ...


So your WindowsTM system is probably missing some VC++ runtime, at least the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable package.



There are Visual C++ Runtimes 2005, 2008, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2017, catch them all! Laughing

VC++2008 should have a file version of 9.0xxx?
On my Win7/32 system the 'registry.wfx' only connects to
a 'comctl32.dll' v6.0.7601.18837, size 1.680.896, date 24.04.2015 19:54
Any explanation anybody?

Common controls version has nothing to do with the version of some DLLs, C++ Redistributable or similar. Common controls 6.x was introduced with Windows XP which supported themes and stuff. Executable manifests set support for Common controls 6.x if they intend to support themes, e.g. like this:
Code:
<assemblyIdentity
  type="win32"
  name="Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls"
  version="6.0.0.0"
  publicKeyToken="6595b64144ccf1df"
  language="*"
  processorArchitecture="x86"/>


@barryk:
IIRC Registry plugin needs Visual C++ Redistributable 2008 to work properly, although I'm not sure because I don't see any such dependency (hard or soft) in registry.wfx ...
