    Hi,
    I'm trying to install Unity Web Player, but it just doesn't work. The installation process seems to work just fine, but on the unity start page it keeps telling me:
    Version of your web player
    Unity Plugin version:not installed
    Unity Engine version:not installed
    I uninstalled it a couple of times, after closing all browsers. Restarted, installed with all browsers closed. The version I used to install is the one found on the home page: http://webplayer.unity3d.com/download_webplayer-3.x/UnityWebPlayer.exe
    I'm running Win7 64bit.
    Let me know if you need any further information.
    Cheers

    Current web player doesn't work on Chrome. Use FireFox or Internet Exploder; I believe Opera may also currently be working but I know FF is.

    I no longer know whether to shudder more for Firefox or Exploder.

    Thanks for your help. Yes, I was using Chrome. Tried it in FF and all was fine.

    Hey guys,

    Unity WebPlayer is supported on Chrome for Both Windows and Mac.

    What version of Chrome are you running?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    I'm on Chrome Version 23.0.1271.95 m (oh god, I'm glad they hide that number -_-), with NotScript (all scripts enabled). I've reinstalled the web player, I've reinstalled chrome, all scripts and plugins are allowed. Chrome cannot detect my web player.

    I was able to get mine to work on Chrome:

    Uninstall Chrome (using the add/remove programs feature), and uninstall Unity Web Player.
    Install Unity Web Player.
    Install latest stable Chrome version (I used the local installer, as the over-the-net one did not work for me).
    Uninstall Web Player.
    Install Web Player.

    I'm hoping some of those steps were unnecessary. :)
