        Description

        Because regxpcom was so problematic, Netscape would like us to go back to what we did in 1.3.1 for Netscape 6. Our 1.4.1 installer should remove previous plugin dll's in the Netscape plugins directory, and then copy all of our plugins dll's into it. The algorithm can be found in the install script in 1.3.1 in make/ishield/jrescript.rul in SetupPlugin().

        Additionaly, we should copy our plugin dll's for all products that register with the gecko embedded browser. The algorithm can be found in the install script in 1.3.1_03 in make/ishield/setupjre.rul in CopyPlugin().

        Because we are moving away from using install script wherever possible, these algorithms should be implemented in ActPanel.dll, so our installer can just call them. The Netscape algorithm should keep the name MakeJava2Netscape6Default(). The gecko algorithm should be something like MakeJava2GeckoDefault().
