finding the right place for plugin
Posted on 1998-01-06
I am using Netscape Communicator 4.01 at this time, and I want to add a plugin that I have downloaded. It is called WorldView 2.0 and is a self extracting program. When I try to open it, I get to a point where it says that it can't find the Netscape Navigator area to put the plugin in. I went a little farther and got this message:
"Would you like WorldView Setup to resolve conflicting VRML DLL's in your Navigator plugin directory? If you say yes, they will be renamed so that they have an underscore in front of the filename. This will not adversely affect Navigator or your system, but will allow WorldView to work. They can be restored by renaming them back."
At this point I canceled the installation.
I then went to Explore and then to Programs. I clicked Netscape and then clicked on Communicator. Listed below are:
+Aim +Defaults -Dynfonts +Java +NetHelp +Plugins and below that is SpellChk
Can you tell me how to install this program saftly? Also is it okay to delete the install file from the download file site once the progam is installed?
