Missing Plug-ins

hello I have searched forum but cannot find an ainswer to this problem, jhope someone can help me.

I have updated to latest version of OpenCPn on my potop running windows 7. It appears to have installed correctly, including finding my chart files and saved routes and tracks from orevious version.

However it is missing all the plug-ins, including the new ones that are supposed too come installed with 4.8.0.

I have a folder C:\Program Files\OpenCPN\plugins

The log file says:

Thank you for a through view. Others may have thoughts/questions too.
1. Good that it installed correctly and found your charts and uses your routes.
2. You don't mention what version you updated from. Often upgrading O requires upgrade of all the plugins. That maybe your case. I would simply download new plugins, uninstall the old ones using the uninstall programs for each plugin, (found under programfiles x86/ opencpn directory, then install the plugins as directed in the wiki.)
