Hi Mohan,

I ran into this recently as well and figured out the following

On Windows you likely get the following folder structure after
installing the VMTK extensions (11591 is the svn revision of my Slicer,
probably differs at your place):

        /VmtkSlicerModule (single file)

This is wrong. It should like the following:

        /VmtkSlicerModule/*.dll *.lib

In the Slicer3 directory the original Extension .zip files (f.e.
VmtkSlicerModule-svn98-2010-01-06-win32.zip..) exist. So you can easily
unzip them by hand and create the correct folder structure.

Please tell me if it works for you.
