I have used this component on a number of sites. From 1.5.x to 2.5.1 - works like a charm.
Only a minor issue on 2.5.1 when open_basedir is in effect on the webserver - then it will not open. Bug found, and a fix is reported to the developer
Look for issue #40 at developers website - there is the solution (very easy to correct, should you encounter the issue)
