For the customers that I created in the Admin or imported into my store, the "Login As Customer" buttons do not appear?

Does this only work for customers who make their own accounts on the frontend?

Answer: 
The extension works fine for customers that are created in admin, registered in frontend and are imported to a store.

It may not work in case you use 3rd party extensions that handle customer sessions. Such as Facebook connect or something like customer activation. Please check whether you use ones to handle customer sessions.

Answer: 
I explored this issue further and believe there is a strict data typing bug in Widgento/Login/Helper/Button.php

On line 57 you have:
if (!$adminSession->isAllowed('customer/login') || !Mage::helper('widgentologin')->getCustomerStoreId($this->_getCustomerId()))

Admin created customers return a 0 for store id which was being evaluated as false. When I changed this to the following, everything worked as it should:

if (!$adminSession->isAllowed('customer/login') || Mage::helper('widgentologin')->getCustomerStoreId($this->_getCustomerId()) === false)

When will this plugin work with version 1.8.0.0?
When I try update to 1.8.0.0 I See the following:

CONNECT ERROR: Package community/Mage_Core_Modules 1.8.0.0 conflicts with: community/SpadarLogin 1.0.1

I have installed the newest version of the plugin.

Your "Compatible with" does state 1.8, but it's clearly not working.

Kind Regards
Steven
