Ok , here's the whole story .
Brand new ( sealed NIB ) PCI DIO 96 cards ( tried only one in the PCI slot first then tried the other , so I know its not a hardware problem .

Ni DIO 96. dll:
Could not load type ' Vixen,version=22.214.171.124 , culture= neutral, PublicKey token= null'
Now , I get this TWICE when starting up VIXEN and also get it when I try to SETUP PLUGINs .

BTW - this PC is NOT online , nor , is it hooked to be .
So , could anyone tell me what the heck am I doing wrong here ?
