Variables wiped on Reinstall

I modified the Reconnect plugin to fit the mud I play, but when I SetVariable and Reinstall the plugin, the variable is no longer there. Before I Reinstall GetVariable does bring them back, but Reinstall for whatever reason wipes the variables clean.
On my VBScript plugin the variables remain throughout Reinstall, so I can't understand what I'm doing wrong here.
Please let me know if you know what it is:


<?xml Version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE muclient [
  <!ENTITY interval "5" >
  <!ENTITY quit_command "quit" >
  <!ENTITY Connect_command "connect" >
  <!ENTITY noconnect_command "NOCONNECT" >
]>

<!-- Plugin "Reconnecter" generated by Plugin Wizard -->

<!--
1. Change the entity above "interval" to be the number of seconds
between retries.

2. Change the entity above "quit_command" to be the command you
type to quit (eg. quit, QUIT, @quit or whatever)

3. Change the entity above "Connect_command" to be the command you
type to enable connection checking.

4. Change the entity above "noconnect_command" to be the command you
type to disable connection checking.

I apologize, I should search more in depth before asking a question.
I found the answer in another post in this forum.

The plugin didn't have 'save_state="y"' at the top.
Fixed now.
