Plugin loaded but not getting initialized.

Hi, I have developed a plugin using NPAPI methods. I copied all the necessary DLLs to plugins folder. I am able to successfully load the plugin. When I enter about:plugins, my plugin gets listed. But when I try to open the file for which I developed the plugin, NP_Initialize is not getting called. If you are aware of possible causes / solutions, please post it.

i have created a html with embed tag using which I try to open the file. If I just run the sample NPAPI plugin available at mozilla, it calls the initialize method without any problems When I integrated that NPAPI with some of my implementations, it doesn't even enter the initialize method. But the plugin seems to load perfectlly.

After a day's long effort, I found out the reason to be the declaration of a global class object in my file. Making it a part of another class solved this problem. I am not sure about the reasons behind it.
