Simple Configurable Products
Works on 220.127.116.11 if you use the version from Github
Installed the version here with Magento Connect but it has some bugs as described in the other reviews.
Uninstalled it and manually installed the version on GitHub:
This one works like a charm!

Working on 1.7 but no image change
Hi, I have got it working on 18.104.22.168. The prices update and I have fixed the indexing issue but the images don't change upon selection of an option that matches the simple product.
Has anyone had this issue before?

Great Plugin, but needs some fixes.
If you following the fixes below it is a great plugin and works like a charm. I wonder if the developer would consider updating this plugin to accommodate the mentioned bug fixes to save everyone some time.
There is still 1 bug that has yet to be fixed. There is a problem with adding the configurable product to your cart from your wishlist, as 'soak' has described. I was able to change this file:
change: oclick="productAddToCartForm.submitLight(this, '<?php echo $_wishlistSubmitUrl ?>'); return false;"
to this: onclick="productAddToCartForm.submit(this, '<?php echo $_wishlistSubmitUrl ?>'); return false;"
This stops the user from adding the configurable product to the wishlist without selecting the simple product/option however even if you do select the option/simple product the main product gets added as the cheapest simple product underneath itself. This is a problem because when they add it to the cart from the wishlist they get the cheapest price no matter what option/simple product they have selected.
Soak can you please give more details on your extension to fix this problem?

Works well, but need to replace a file. takes 2 minuets to fix
It's a cool app that saved me a headache and a lot of money.
It does mess up the price indexer but all you need to do is to swap the file on ..app/code/community/OrganicInternet/SimpleConfigurableProducts/Catalog/Model/Resource/Eav/Mysql4/Product/Indexer/Price/Configurable.php
with this one

Getting index working on CE v22.214.171.124 with Wishlists
Further to my earlier review. I'd like to reduce my rating slightly due to the problem highlighted by the earlier reviewer about Wishlists. As described in their review - they don't seem to work properly at all with this extension.
The only way we were able to get this extension working correctly with Wishlists was to write our own small extension to Magento to override some of the Wishlist and Cart functions.
Now when we submit configurable products to the Wishlist then add them to cart from here, they enter the Cart correctly as simple products. When editing the Cart items the user now gets passed back to the configurable product view rather than the simple product so all is good.
We had to override a couple of functions in each of the Mage_Sales_Model_Quote and Mage_Checkout_CartController classes in our extension to achieve this.

So many problems
Having so many issues with this extension, but unfortunately it's the only one that actually changes the product images in dropdown on configurable page. The paid extension we tried out (Amasty) did not work at all and they provided no support, so at least this one is free, albeit with problems...
However, I'm having the same problem as the previous poster: our product prices are not reindexing now. I really wish they would post the solution to this... I cannot find how to fix this anywhere.
Other issues with this extension are that add to wishlist isn't correct, it allows customers to add the item from wishlist to cart without forcing product option. Thus the product will automatically default in cart to the cheapest option, and permit customers to purchase, which is obviously very bad. Example: I sell 3 simple products under the configurable for $10, $50 and $100, and even if the $100 one is the one in the wishlist, it is always added to cart as the $10 product even though all other product attributes are displaying correct otherwise for SKU, attributes and price of the most expensive item (originally in wishlist).
Also the dropdown in cart does not work to change product options. Similarly, clicking "edit" on the simple product in cart brings it back to the simple product page, not the configurable. What is the point?
I'm so aggravated with this extension and support appears to be nonexistant (I guess this is to be expected with a free extension, but even on Github support is somewhere out in space). It changes images, price, descriptions, etc. of products dynamically which is what we need... but it breaks so many other functions.

Getting index working on CE v126.96.36.199
Product does exactly what we need, however the re-indexer process fails for Product Prices after installing this extension in CE v188.8.131.52.
Run the indexer from the command line to reveal SQL errors.
You'll need to edit the following file to fix these and get the indexer working:
