Hello! I'm pretty new to Vim in general

I'm using Neovim in Windows 10 with Vim-plug for plug-ins, and so I found your github page for the plug-in and installed it successfully in the path as in this


However, when I try to execute either :EditVifm or :Vifm I get the error

"vifm" is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file

Also in a console below it says

There has been an error when processing function 7[13]..<SNR>14_HandleRunResults: Got non-zero code from vifm: 1"

I was following this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kx-SDJwL01o&t=195s where at 18:32 he had no trouble on Mac.

I couldn't find an solution to this, I'm hoping you could help and thanks in advance

Vim plugin doesn't include the application itself. You still need to download the application and either update your %PATH% with its location or configure the plugin similar to this:

let g:vifm = 'c:/programs/vifm/vifm.exe'

The guy from YouTube already had Vifm installed.
