I am trying to use the Road Graph plugin within QGIS 1.8 (running under Windows 7 64-bit). When I click Vector -> Road Graph -> Settings I get the settings-panel: enter image description here

But, I don't know how to enable the "working-panel", which should appear on the left side of the main window, according to the producers of the plugin (screenshot of pic #2 is taken from their site):

Any hints? What am I doing wrong / what's missing?

Go to "View" menu - "Panels" and check "Shortest path" there.
