    Default NSAPI Plugin installation

    Hi all,
    some time ago we developed NSAPI plugin for firefox and it works well, but now we want to add plugin to Google Chrome. I have big problem with installation to Google Chrome. Our plugin consists of two files - npfiller.dll and nsIFillerPlugin.xpt . Our Plugin may be activated when you open HTML page in browser which consist object element with certain mime type. e.g.: <object type="application/x-filler-plugin" "name='XMLFiller' id='XMLFiller'......./>

    I tried two type of installation:
    1) I created directory in chrome folder (c:\Users\Mara\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\plugins\) and I copied plugins files to this folder. When I opened chrome and jumped to site with installed plugins (aboutlugins). I saw only location of plugin c:\filler\npfiller.dll, but no mime type was defined, no plugin name was displayed

    2) I found this site: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Plu...nstall_problem . So i create windows registry reg file:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MozillaPlugins\@company.cz/Filler,version=4.0]
    "Path"="c:\\filler\\npfiller.dll"
    "ProductName"=Filler"
    "Description"="Filler Plugin"
    "Version"="4.0"
    "XPTPath"="c:\\filler\\nsIFillerPlugin.xpt"

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MozillaPlugins\@company.cz/ Filler,version=4.0\MimeTypes]

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MozillaPlugins\@company.cz/Filler,version=4.0\MimeTypes\application/x-filler-plugin]
    "Description"="Filler plugin"
    "Suffixes"="x-filler-plugin"

    Unfortunately the result is same like in 1) see: http://img638.imageshack.us/i/polugin.png/ . I can see only path to plugin in aboutlugins page.

    So the plugin doesn't start when i go to HTML page with object element with our mime type.

    What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks for every reply.


    Regards
    Marek
