Players and Plug-Ins

Click the player or plug-in name below to download the latest version. You can also use the Browser Check below to check whether you have these players and plug-ins installed and download the latest versions.

Browser Check

The Browser Check utility will tell you whether or not the necessary players and plug-ins are present on your computer and, when they are present, whether they are up to date. It will also allow you to download the latest versions of the players and plug-ins.

It's best to run the Browser Check from inside your MyLab course. When you sign into your course, you will see a Browser Check link on the Announcements page. You can also run the browser check here.

Run the Browser ChecK

  • Click the button above.
  • Select the textbook for your course from the drop-down menu and click Submit.
  • In the list of players and plug-ins in the center of the Browser Check window, check which are currently installed.
  • For a player or plug-in that you need but which is not installed, follow the instructions to download the latest version. In some cases, you may need to register for the player or plug-in, and you may need to restart your computer when you finish the download and installation.
  • When you finish installing the players or plugins your website requires, close the Browser Check, restart your browser, then return to your MyLab.
