How to install Plugins?

Simply download the desired plugin file (*.ffapx) from our Website and select it in the plugin installer of the Kiosk Assistant! For detailed instructions on how to install a plugin, please see the user manual "Installing and Using Plugins".

Notice: The latest version of FrontFace for Touch Kiosks offers an automatic plugin installer. However, if you want to install a plugin manually or with older versions (<2.1.0) of FrontFace (by copying the DLLs files), this is still supported. Simply rename the file extension from .ffapx into .zip.
The ZIP file then contains, among a user manual, also a folder which has the same name as the plugin (e.g. "\Schedule\"). This folder contains the actual plugin that consists of one or multiple DLL file(s) and also sometimes additional accompanying files and sub folders. In order to install the plugin you should know how to copy files using the Windows File Explorer and how to generally handle ZIP files.

Manual plugin installation with FrontFace for Touch Kiosks:
Please extract the entire folder that is named like this plugin and all of its files and sub folders into the folder "\Plugins\" in the installation folder of FrontFace for Touch Kiosks (by default this is "C:\Program Files (x86)\mirabyte\FrontFace for Touch Kiosks\"). Please note that this step is required on all (!) PCs on which you want to run either the FrontFace Kiosk Application or the Kiosk Assistant

If you have previously downloaded the trial version of the plugin and have installed it as described in this manual, you have to replace the DLL files of the plugin with the corresponding ones of the full version (that also ships as ZIP archive) in order to get the full version running. The procedure is exactly the same as with the trial version, except that you overwrite the existing files with the ones of the full version. If you already used the plugin in your project, all settings from the trial version will remain!
