PanoramIX: Netscape plug-in

The Netscape plug-in for PanoramIX may be installed using the installation package provided here. This may be needed for older versions of Netscape Navigator, including versions 4.0 and 4.1. Versions 4.2 and later of Netscape browsers should be able to download the PanoramIX plug-in automatically using the SmartUpdate feature.

Click here for the Macintosh version.

  1. Download, the installation program for PanoramIX for Windows 95/98/ME and NT/2000(x86) (ibmpix.exe, 924 KB, Jan. 29, 1998).

    Note the folder where this file is saved when it is downloaded. This should be a "temp" directory.

  2. Use Windows Explorer to select the folder used to save the PanoramIX installation program (ibmpix.exe) downloaded in the previous step.

  3. Double-click on the icon for ibmpix.exe to start the installation.

  4. After the installation is completed, make sure the files nppix32.dll and pix32.dll get put into the proper plugins folder(s). Sometimes Netscape will have several Program and plugin directories, especially if you have ever upgraded from an earlier version of Netscape.

    The Netscape plug-in can also be used with Microsoft Internet Explorer, but you may need to copy the files to the MSIE plugins directory yourself.

  5. Re-start Netscape Navigator and go back to the web page that uses the PanoramIX plug-in.

If you have already installed an older version of PanoramIX, delete or (preferably) uninstall it before installing a new version.
