Default admin cant see GARS settings?

i have the gars set to use to 1 of my admins to be able to have axx to the gars settings and they cant view the GARS on the left side of the admincp.

i put my test user account to admin and had it access the gars settings under the admin permissions, and the gars was not showing. i put all permissions to yes, and it still didnt show.

why is it not showing on the left side of the admincp for other admins?

Is this something that used to work and now does not? Are they superadministrators?

They'd need to be an administrator with 'canadmingars' permission. If you want, there is the 'GARS - Can Administer' plugin where you could add to the top something like the following, but you can also use ACP -> Usergroups -> Administrator Permissions -> Edit Permissions -> Can Administer GARS -> Yes to set permission:
Code:

Grab the GARS package, re-import the product-gars.xml file (do NOT uninstall, do allow overwrite), and that should take care of it.

Go here, download GARS again, re-import the product-gars.xml file via the ACP (do NOT uninstall, do allow overwrite) or is that what you did?

Yep, as of post six. Nothing changed between post six and post eight.
