Help running XWF X-tensions

Currently tinkering with XWF. I've downloaded the XT_XWF_AutoCTR x-tension, which automates extraction of common file types to a container but I can't get it to run. 

I've searched the web, but haven't been able to find a proper explanation on how to set up x-tensions. I believe I have to compile the code into a .dll. Could anyone point me in the right direction, or know if there's a basic guide/tutorial to setting these up?

You don't need to compile, just download the DLLs from the source

X-Tensions can be run in a number of different ways and it depends on how the X-Tension is designed to be used.

For example, some X-Tensions are 'run' from the Refine Volume Snapshot screen, by clicking the "Run X-Tensions" option. This will then allow you to select the DLL you have downloaded.

Others can be run using the "Run X-Tensions" button on the toolbar (on mine its 6th button from the left, looks like a gear). This will then allow you to run an X-Tension by selecting it.

As to which method should be used, is there no documentation for the X-Tension you are using?

Edit: read the project page for this, run it from the RVS screen.

Are there any X-Tensions any of you use regularly and consider indispensable? I've not used them much so just wondering if there's anything good I'm missing.

The ones we use most are all in house created ones. I'm trying to push a few through to the X-Ways page soon.

Thanks for the replies. Not very familiar with using github and the links in the x-tensions repository directed me to the code page. Couldn't find the .dll but it's solved. 

Going to give it a try. Would be interesting to know which in house ones you're using minime2k9 and if these get pushed to the X-ways page.

Most likely ones to get pushed to X-Ways page:

Image accessibility report X-Tension - used for IIoC cases to record pictures and videos accessibility in a report format.

Sqlite record decoder - Allows you highlight the start of an SQLite record and it will check if its valid and decode it if it is.
