    Trying to get the plugin to work and get the following error. WP 3.5 - any idea?

    Call to a member function add_shortcode() on a non-object in XXXXXXXXXX/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/includes/shortcodes.php on line 174

    Try deactivating all other plugins and switching to the default theme.

    Thanks for the reply, but I wasn't happy with just deactivating everything. It would appear that the wpcf7_shortcode_manager doesn't work outside the core, which was causing a conflict with one of my plugins, to fix the issue I added a conditional if to the shortcodes.php file around line 174 thus:

    global $wpcf7_shortcode_manager;
    return $wpcf7_shortcode_manager->add_shortcode( $tag, $func, $has_name );

    Both plugins now work, may be useful to someone else having the same issues.
