Erik; That did it... I didn't have the correct checkboxes check in BOTH the system and blog plug-in levels. Once I did that, it started working. Thanks so much for you help!

A couple of suggestions. Perl. Perl is fussy. You need the right version of Perl and the right version of the CPAN modules. I don't run MT on Windows, but I do run a Perl-powered web server (my intranet) on Windows. I use ActivePerl v5.8.4 from ActiveState ( MT-KeywordExtractor. Check that MT-KeywordExtractor is installed and activated as a system-level plugin and as a blog-specific plugin. When you click the "Show Setting" link, there are four options: 1. Enabled [ON] 1. Set Keywords [ON] 2. Set Technorati Tags [OFF] 3. Set Technorati Tags (more) [OFF] Make sure that first two are enabled (checked). Selecting "Set Technorati Tags" will append Technorati links to the end of the EntryBody field. Selecting "Set Technorati Tags (more)" will append Technorati links to the EntryMore (extended entry) field. I didn't want MT-KeywordExtractor to add Technorati tags, in part because if you add them to the body of your post, then you'll get multiple sets of tags each time you modify the entry. Also, I wanted more control over the location and format of the Technorati tags, and MT-KeywordExtractor doesn't provide this, but Tagwire does this nicely. Remove Conflicting Plugins. It is possible that MT-KeywordExtractor may conflict with other MT plugins. Try removing all plugins (except those provided by Six Apart as part of the MT distribution) except for MT-KeywordExtractor. Use Apache For Debugging. Point your web browser at the file on your server, and then take a look at the Apache error logs to see what it says. There should be some useful info in there. Common problems include path problems (Perl programs not knowing where the Perl program is located) and permission problems (files not being executable). My Apache error log lives at C:Program FilesApache GroupApachelogs. Go Linux-like with Cygwin. A final option is to run Apache, Perl, and MT under the Cygwin environment ( instead of natively under Windows. This may be more work that it is worth to get a Linux-like environment under Windows, but it is an option. Hope it helps!

Erik; I've bombed out trying to get MT-KeywordExtractor or work. I'm on a Windows server, so maybe that's part of it. I think I've installed all the required Perl modules, but I don't know my way around PPM well enough (and haven't' found a good "brain dump" on it yet). I'm a programmer, lots of ASP, VB, MySQL, MS-SQL, etc. experience, but I'm new to Perl and MT. I can't seem to find the correct place to look to see error messages related to this. MT-KeywordsExtractor shows up in the Plug-In list, but never creates any keywords. There's nothing in the MT Activity Log. Any ideas or suggestions?
