Plugins aren't functionable

Good morning,

As I see that problem seems to be unsolved (http://ask.ocsinventory-ng.org/10928/plugins-and-database-dont-work-as-expected, http://ask.ocsinventory-ng.org/11367/plugins-dont-send-data-to-ocs-server). I also read a question where the solution was: It's a bug! My Situation:

I've installed an agent for Windows 10 (Agent because of 32 bit). On my server (Ubuntu 18.04) there's version The Plugins are installed over install_plugin.py (path


). There're also available and installable over the ocs website. When I go to the Plugin folder on agent installation and put the .vbs scripts in, nothing happen.

These scripts are:

<!--[if gte mso 9]> Normal 0 21 false false false DE X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 <![endif]--><!--[if gte mso 9]> <![endif]--><!--[if gte mso 10]>



Operating System Install date

List printers

Network Share

Shared Folders

Office Pack


The tables will be shown but without content. In the .log file of agent I get just this:

Starting OCS Inventory NG Agent on Tuesday, November 26, 2019 07:43:34.
AGENT => Running OCS Inventory NG Agent Version
AGENT => Using OCS Inventory NG FrameWork Version
AGENT => Loading plug-in(s)
AGENT => Using network connection with Communication Server

AGENT => Sending Inventory
INVENTORY => Inventory changed since last run
AGENT => Inventory successfully sent
AGENT =>  Communication Server asked for Package Download
ERROR *** DOWNLOAD => Found result code <SUCCESS> for OCS Inventory Agent Setup package but no package ID specified, so remove all packages to avoid running Agent setup in loop !

AGENT => Unloading communication provider
AGENT => Unloading plug-in(s)
AGENT => Execution duration: 00:00:09.

No Plugins are loaded, just an download error (I don't have any packages to download but I think I know why it appears). Important for me are the Plugins at first.

Can anyone help?

I found out that when I put some scripts in the Plugin folder I get an error #500 while inventory.

the Officepack script may have some problems, please try without

Otherwise, try each plugin script independently

I have the same problem: http://ask.ocsinventory-ng.org/11519/how-to-check-if-the-plugin-works-ocs-2-6

Error 500 I have even without Officepack. I had to remove all plugins from the agent directory.
