I would appreciate some help in getting the plugin to work.

I'm running TC 32-bit which I installed in c:\Program Files\totalcmd combined with the 64-bit version.

I installed ulister plugin (32-bit version) in the ...totalcmd\plugins\wlx\ulister subdirectory and inside the wlx subdirectory I copied the redist folder that has all the dll files (...plugins\wlx\ulister\redist).

I didn't change anything in the ulister.ini file. It is as installed.

Having done the above by pressing F3 I cannot view PDF files, Libre Office files (.ods, .odt) or MS Office files (Office 2013 or 2016). What I see is a Lister window which is undecipherable.

IIRC Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable required for plugin to work

Thank you. I'll install it. I presumed that it came already installed with Windows 10! :)

Thank you for your help. I saw the particular posting, but I didn't know that I had to install it on my PC which runs Windows 10.

Following your advice, I initially tried it with Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 (both 32-bit and 64-bit) assuming that this would be a newer version, but it didn't work. Installing the 2013 32-bit version appears to have solved the problem.

I thought I should mention that one annoyance remains: I have to run TC as Administrator in order for the plugin to work.

I have Windows 10 and there is no such problem with ULister.
I guess the installation was made in some strange way using the admin account and now he tries to use it under a normal account.

Total Commander (both 32-bit and 64-bit) is installed in c:\program files\totalcmd and ulister in a plugins directory inside it. I use a standard user account for my daily work and therefore I had to install TC using an admin account. Similarly I had to install the MS Visual C++ redistributable as admin.

EDIT: All access problems are solved if I install TC in a directory under C:\ drive. I wonder though if I lay myself open to any vulnerabilities. The installation (as a standard user) did not require me to use an Administrator account (as it would have done if I tried to install it in c:\Program Files).
