Installing the Plugin

This lesson will show you how to install the GLX Application Framework IDE plugin. Plugins are installed in the plugins folder of your Revolution User Extensions folder.

You can locate the plugin stack in the ./plugin folder of the GLX Application Framework distribution folder. If you are using Revolution 3.5 or later then choose the plugin in the Revolution 3.5 or later folder. This version of the plugin uses a Data Grid and is more user friendly. This is the version of the plugin that will be updated moving forward.

I can't seem to find this folder on Windows 7. On my Vista laptop, I DO have the "My Revolution Enterprise" folder under my documents but there is no such folder on Win 7. There WAS a plugins folder under the 4.0-gm-1 folder under Program Files. Is this where it's supposed to go? It seems like I'd have to change it for every update to Revolution.

@len: Just create the folder in My Documents if it doesn't exist. Revolution does not create the folder by default.
