If I’m not mistaken, I had the same issue. I think my workaround was to install 
Graphviz into C:\Tools\Graphviz and then
point the PATH to this directory as I believed that the blanks and brackets in 
the directory string could be the reason.
But not sure if this could help you as you can run dot.exe…

What’s the status in Zim settings / Plugins / Diagram dependencies?

Hi Kurt, Murat,
I can run dot.exe allright.

I have the path to dot.exe in my PATH, following is what I got after typing in 
"set" in cmd console, Graphviz's bin folder is found 2nd in PATH.

Yet, I have no luck with "Insert Diagram" plugin at all.
Any idea ?

Make sure the path to dot.exe is on your path, something like:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Graphviz2.36\bin\

Then in Zim under Edit -> Preferences -> Plugins
Insert Diagram should show the GraphViz dependency as "OK"
Make sure to enable the plugin with the checkbox.
You should be ready to use the "insert diagram" menu item

Hi all,
I have already installed Graphviz2.37 on my Windows7 machine, and I can render 
table successfully with Graphviz.  However, when I tried to enable "Insert 
Diagram" plugin in Zim, I got dependency fail due to cannot find Graphviz.
I put my Graphviz path into my PATH variable, but no luck.
How can I enable "Insert Diagram" plugin in Zim ???
