I have downloaded and extracted Dark Byte's Virtual Pagedir posted in his topic "Virtual Pagedir and improved physical memory browse ( In C )".

I am currently using Cheat Engine 6.3, i386 version. When I go into Edit -> Settings and try to add virtualpagedir.dll to the Plugins, I get the error message "The plugin dll could not be loaded:998". What does that mean and what can I do to make this awesome plugin work on my system?

Here are my system specs:

Win7 Ultimate 32-bit
i5-3470 Intel processor
32 GB RAM

(Yeah, I know that I could be running Win7 64-bit with this processor and memory, but I have my reasons for wanting to make this work with the 32-bit OS.)

Perhaps it's too old. Try cheat engine 6.2 or 6.1

I tried loading the virtualpagedir.dll using Cheat Engine 6.2:
Same error message: The plugin dll could not be loaded:998

I then tried loading the virtualpagedir.dll using Cheat Engine 6.1:
Another error message, albeit different:
"Error loading <directoryname>\virtualpagedir.dll: The dll is missing the CEPlugin_GetVersion function."

*sigh* I guess I'll try with 6.0 then.

Update:
Now with Cheat Engine 6.0:
Same error message as with 6.1:
"Error loading <directoryname>\virtualpagedir.dll: The dll is missing the CEPlugin_GetVersion function."

Okay, so the real reason that I want to use Virtual PageDir is so that I can look at and edit physical memory contents between 0x80000000 and 0xbfffffff. This is currently not possible with Cheat Engine 6.3. Is there any other way to do this?

998 means access denied, so check that you aren't protected by your anti virus

if your system is capable of it launch dbvm. It provides better hardware access

but it could be it's a hardcoded limit in the 32-bit CE client

I checked the quarantine lists for both my Panda Security and Malwarebytes and did not find the virtualpagedir.dll there.

I am also able to read the virtualpagedir.dll file (with notepad) and delete and restore it at will so my username account on my computer does have full access to the file.

Could "Access denied" be referring to your mentioned "hardcoded limit" for the 32-bit client and that virtualpagedir.dll would only work for the 64-bit client? If that's the case, then I'm pretty much screwed.
