Shockwave plugin

Trying to load a web page that has a shockwave on its page. I go to the Netscape plugin page (as per the documentation) and download the shockwave installer. It prompts for the plugin directory, I give /program files/Kmeleon/plugins and it says that is not a proper plugin directory for Netscape. What do I give for kmeleon ?

Mark,

You have to make a copy of k-meleon.exe and rename it netscape.exe to trick Shockwave into installing into the kmeleon\plugins directory.

Did it work?I found out that plugins from one Netscape could be copied from one version and pasted to another,and everything was cool.I am not so sure about K-meleon.If you had recent download,the file name is npswf32.dll.

I made a copy of the K-Meleon directory and renamed both the directory and the executable for their netscape counterparts, afterwhich the shockwave install went off without a hitch. I then copied the plugins into the K-Meleon directory and deleted the Netscape clone...just good 'housekeeping' ;-).

Both methods will work - if you have the plugin in Netscape, you can just copy it over as Fulvio did or make a pseduo-Netscape directory like Karl did.
