just a little remark (you might know it already):

[declare -*path] works locally in the sense, that pathes are added only
for the patch, that holds the [declare]. for testing the netpd stuff, it
really only works, if you try it within the _chat.pd patch. 

remark2 (probably even better known):
when adding a [declare], save the patch, close and reopen it in order to
test whether the [declare] really works. instantiating a [declare] does
_not_ immediately add pathes.

check, whether all the netpd stuff is really there. is there a
netpd/includes/netpd-f.pd and netpd/includes/creator.pd ? if so, it is
very strange, that you weren't able to create those even after adding
the path to netpd/includes to your settings. i don't have any
explanation for that.
