I'm not a Windows user so can't comment on platform specifics, I can
provide some general pointers.

First up, check whether your build has built the plugins - there should a
bin/osgPlugins-3.6.3 directory (it might be lib/osgPlugins-3.6.3)
containing dll's in the form of osgdb_*.dll, this should contain the
osgdb_png.dll if the png plugin compiled.

If the plugin has built then it's likely that the you haven't installed the
OSG's built libs and dll's or haven't set a path to directory that
osgPlugins-3.6.3 is installed to so that the OSG can find them.  I think
it's PATH env var under Windows is used to point where to search (it's a
few years since I touched Windows.)

To help find where the OSG is looking set the env var OSG_NOTIFY_LEVEL to
INFO and then have a look at the console output.  This might help show you
where it's looking.
