Enable Silverlight for Chrome 42-44

Google has decided to disable the support for the Netscape Plugin Application Programming Interface (NPAPI), due to security reasons. Starting with disabling it in current version 42 and removing it’s support completely in future version 45.
As we CRM people often have addons that run on Silverlight, here is to actiate NPAPI and enable Silverlight again.

Pre-requirements


You need to have a Chrome version lower than 45 and Silverlight (you can get it here) installed on your system.
You can check your Chrome version by typing “chrome://chrome” in the addressbar.
