62      Plugins seem to follow a somewhat different system, at leas
 >t with Firefox 9.0 on Windows 7.

64    <p>
65      Installation can be performed by creating any one of the fo
 >llowing Registry keys:
66    </p>
67    <pre class="eval">
68HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MozillaPlugins\<em>plugin-id</em>
69HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\MozillaPlugins\<em>plugin-id</em>
70</pre>
71    <p>
72      And on 64-bit Windows:
73    </p>
74    <pre class="eval">
75HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\MozillaPlugins\<em>plugin
 >-id</em>
76</pre>
77    <p>
78      Where <em>plugin-id</em> is the <a href="Install_Manifests#
 >id">id</a> property of the plugin (as in the install.rdf) - for e
 >xample, <a class=" link-mailto" href="mailto:x-myplugin@codewell.
 >com" rel="freelink">x-myplugin@codewell.com</a>

81      Note: It appears that plugins are loaded from <em>all</em> 
 >of these registry keys.
82    </p>
83    <p>
84      The key must have a value named <code>Path</code> with type
 > <code>REG_SZ</code>, containing the fully-qualified path <em>of 
 >the plugin's DLL</em>. The key may have other values, for example
 > Description, ProductName, Vendor, Version, and GeckoVersion.
