I have followed the instructions for installing Picacpport as a windows service and eventually got it working. I have to put the application in a path with no spaces so that the service install script would install it where I wanted.
It has successfully scanned one of my large photo folders and now I want ot add some tags using the PAI auto tagger.

I have followed the Add-on Installation guide and I downloaded the lastest V3 groovy binary (3.0.14) and placed its zip in a folder called groovy under the .picapport folder, and restarted the service.
Nothing happened. 

Someone else on the group seemed to suggest that it should be in the Plugins directory, I moved the groovy binary to Plugins, and restarted the service, this time the zip file was unpacked.
I then placed the PAI addon in the same folder and restarted the service again, the PAI addon was unpacked but the log says it is not a valid plugin.

I have tried again to install it as per the instructions but It won't load. What am I doing wrong?

Kind regards

Fixed it with the latest headless build.
