Chapter 8. Making Extensions Work for You > Installing an Extension

Installing an Extension

It seems that half the time installing extensions works and half the time it doesn’t! Installing extensions need not be difficult, but sometimes things do not go as expected. Perhaps the extension’s installation site is not in your approved to install extensions list. In this section you will learn two ways to install an extension. In automatic installation, the installation is initiated by clicking an extension’s install link. A manual installation, on the other hand, can be done when the extension is already available on the computer. When you click to install an extension’s install link and it doesn’t install, you can use the same manual installation technique. Basically, you use a drag-and drop-installation just like you can use with themes.

All of a given profile’s extensions are installed within the profile’s extensions folder. If you go to your profile location, you will find a subfolder named extensions. Navigate to this folder and you’ll see a number of subfolders, each identified using a GUID, a file named Extensions.RDF, and perhaps another file named installed-extensions.txt.
