    • Installation Instructions (Explorer)
        The ActiveX control will automatically enable you to view Lightning Strike images in MSIE; however, the present version of this control does not have all of the functionality of the plugin. A new version of the ActiveX control should be out soon. Should you choose to install the Netscape plugin inside Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0 for Windows 95/NT, do the following:
      • Download LS26.EXE by using the form below.
      • When prompted, select Save file to disk from the dialog box.
      • Once the file has downloaded, execute LS26.EXE.
      • Place the file NPLS32.DLL in the plugins folder of Internet Explorer. For most people this will be
        C:\Program Files\Plus!\Microsoft Internet\plugins
      • You must either manually edit the Windows registry to associate .cod files with the DLL rather than the OCX (highly advanced) in order to invoke the plugin, or else disable ActiveX from within MSIE in order for the plugin to be invoked. At some point we may release a small utility that allows users to switch the registry settings back and forth as needed, but that is still a future project.
      • Restart MSIE. IMPORTANT! You must do this for the plug-in to work correctly.
      • You are now ready to view the Lightning Strike images.
    • Download the Windows 95/NT plugin
