The Java Plug-in, from Sun Microsystems Inc., is software that runs inside your web browser, allowing it to run Java programs, such as NetLabels. The first time you run NetLabels or print NetLabels Color Swatches, you must install the Java Plug-in. The Java plug-in is about 5MB in size - this could take anywhere from 1 - 30 minutes to download, depending on your Internet connection speed.
Sun Microsystems has released many versions of the Java Plug-in. As of October, 2009 we are still recommending Java Plug-in Version 1.3.1_02. However, you can likely use any 1.3.1 version successfully. If you are running Windows Vista or Windows 7 you will need to use version 1.6 of the Java Plug-in to run NetLabels.

We have found that version 1.3.1 of the Java Plug-in does not work with Windows Vista and Windows 7. If you are running either of these operating systems, you will need to install version 1.6 of the Java Runtime Environment, which can be downloaded by clicking here.
