I installed the QGIS Standalone Installer Version 2.14 (64bit). I created a map in the program called QGIS Desktop 2.14.3 with GRASS 7.0.4.

I need one tool from Plugin : Point sampling tool. The problem is that I cannot find it anywhere:

When I check the Plugin settings, I can see that:

I am using Windows 7 enterprise 64bit.

Why the repository is unavailable? Is that the problem? How can I solve it?

I checked also the proxy:

Does anyone have the solution?

  • Do you have perhaps a solution to that problem? @underdark – Janita Jun 13 '16 at 9:04
  • Try to download QGIS LTR 2.8.9, and see if the Long term release can solve the problem. – ahmadhanb Jun 13 '16 at 9:27

If you can't connect to the online repository, download the plugin manually:

  1. Access the Point sampling tool plugin from the repository.

  2. Click the version required:

    Point sampling tool plugin

  3. Click the Download button:

    Download plugin

  4. Extract the plugin folder from the zip file and copy/move it to your .qgis2 directory (e.g. C:\Users\You\.qgis2\python\plugins

  5. Restart/load QGIS and it should appear as an installed plugin in your Manage and Install Plugins... interface.

Note that you can do this for other plugins aswell.

  • OK. No problem till the point 4. I don't have a plugins folder in the .qgis2 folder. When I go here: C:\Users\Me\.qgis2\python, the only folder I can see is: expressions which contains two init files.. – Janita Jun 13 '16 at 10:11

    @Janita - Try creating a new folder called "plugins" and insert the plugin folder inside. – Joseph Jun 13 '16 at 10:14
