JIST installation problem
I tried to install JIST (v.3.2) after the installation of MIPAV (7.0+). I followed the instructions and the installation process ended up with an error message, "No plugins were installed, please select valid MIPAV plugin files". I reinstalled MIPAV and tried again, however, the results were identical. I tried on both a Mac (Yosemite) and a Windows 10 laptops. On both computers, the error messages were identical. To make it sure, I tried other plugins such as TOADS-CRUISE. The results were identical.

RE: JIST installation problem
I found that the error message is misleading. After closing and launching MIPAV again, all the plugins appear on Windows 10. However, the plugins, JIST-CRUISE and others, are still not properly installed on Mac (Yosemite). As recommended elsewhere, I copied all the plugins directly into the 'plugins' folder under /mipav/ then the plugins appears but they don't appear right. It appears as file name, e.g., JIST-CRUISE-2014Dec12-03-37PM.jar.

RE: JIST installation problem
I was just made aware of these issues. Sorry that I didnt see the messages easier. 

On OS X 10.11.6, I just downloaded: 
** MIPAV Nightly OS X - https://mipav.cit.nih.gov/download.php 2016.09.11
** http://masijenkins.vuse.vanderbilt.edu:8...

I ran the install.app with "open" and set the memory to 4GB with a destination of ~/mipavNightly.

Mipav reported: Version: 7.3.0-2016-09-11 (2016-09-11)

I went to Plugins -> Install for the jar file, but it reported no plugins found. Restarting MIPAV did not help. 

I looked in ~/mipav/plugins (yes, not mipavNightly), but there were no files. I run unzip to extract the jar file to ~/mipav/plugins with overwrite all (for duplicate "license.txt" files. 

I restarted mipav and everything works. I've filed a bug report with the MIPAV folks to let them know that the plugin install on mac isn't working. 

Does this help? 

In the future, please e-mail me directly if a response does not occur in a reasonable amount of time on the forum. I'll still respond here so that the conversations are archived and searchable, but... sometime e-mail filters do not exactly work as intended and I can miss e-mails. 

Best,
