To install and configure Mozilla:

  1. Download a Mozilla build from

    For best results, download the Mozilla 0.8.1 build created on 8/28/2001, from

  2. Unzip the Mozilla binary files into a new directory on your system.
  3. Open a Command prompt and change to the Mozilla bin directory. For example, if the bin directory is in D:\mozilla, enter d: and then enter cd mozilla\bin.
  4. Enter regsvr32 mozctlx.dll.

    If this does not work, the directory containing regsvr32.exe is not in your PATH variable. Use the Windows Find Files utility to locate the program and then run it using the full path; for example c:\winnt\system32\regsvr32.exe mozctl.dll.
