Configuring Google Chrome to run asset actions

Last updated on July 02 2015

To configure Google Chrome to run asset actions, do the following: 

The 64-bit version of Chrome is not currently supported. To run asset actions, use the 32-bit version of Chrome or a different browser.
  1. Type about:flags in Chrome's address bar and hit Enter. Use Chrome's search function (Ctrl+F) to find the NPAPI setting and make sure that it is enabled. Recent Chrome versions have NPAPI, which the Lansweeper plugin makes use of, disabled by default. Manually enabling this setting may be required.
  2. Download this file, unzip it and copy the nplansweepershellexec.dll plugin contained within.
  3. Paste the DLL file into whichever folder exists of the folders listed below.
    %localappdata%\Google\Chrome\Application\Plugins (paste into directory bar and hit Enter)
    Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\Plugins
    Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\Plugins
  4. If none of the folders listed above exist, locate one of the folders below instead, create a folder called Plugins within and paste the DLL into the Plugins folder.
    %localappdata%\Google\Chrome\Application (paste into directory bar and hit Enter)
    Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application
    Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application
  5. Restart Chrome if it was running. To ensure that Chrome is fully stopped before restarting, you can open Windows Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc), right-click the chrome.exe process(es) under Processes and select End Process.
  6. You can check whether the plugin is properly installed by accessing Chrome's Plug-ins menu. You can access it directly by typing about:plugins in the address bar and hitting Enter. You can disable/re-enable the plugin from here as well.
