So for users with outdated OS Win7 , I suggest you to still provide the face tag zip package, and the information to unzip it in AddOns folder :

In https://www.xnview.com/wiki/index.php?t ... _Face_tags Wiki page, add a line like this :
"For Win 7 users, download this zip file , unzip it in AddOns folder and restart XnViewmp"

I copied archive.dll from V1.4 , and pasted it in XnViewMP folder ( I:\3 temp\XnViewMP\ for V1.6.4)
to get face tagging on window 7:

I have downloaeded now version 1.4.5 zip, unzipped, searched in that ... but I dont see any archive.dll in it. :?

Ok, must be really 1.4.0. :o So then I had do overwrite the existing version of that file.

so resumee? The new version on windows 7 doesn not allow to download the plugin -> Errormessage
replacing the archive.dll? seems to work.
Downloading plugin works then. But i have it downloaded manuall anyways before.
the face tag is not under tools but under Menu>Metadata.
have not played around with that not yet.

It all worries me a bit. Should i be worried? :?

I appeal to the developer community not to exclude Windows 7 users or make it difficult for us.

And to make this plugin work so that people are added to the catalog, up to V1.4.5 you need to validate the Metadata > Import XMP keywords option.
Perhaps, it will be better to wait for next version of "Face tag" plugin to ask for an update of wiki doc (see previous posts)
