Install of WGA Plug-in for your Firefox is working while trying to Validate RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ok when I try to validate this is what I get:

    Install of WGA Plug-in for your Firefox browser failed

    WgaPluginInstall is an application that installs the WGA Plug-in for your Firefox Browser. When you are prompted with the dialog box to download the application, you would have to either open and run the application or save it on your system. If you have saved it on your computer, browse to that location and double click the application to install the plug-in.

    You must download and install the WGA plug-in to use this web site.

    Verify the successful installation of the Wga Plug-In

    On successful installation, WgaPluginInstall places two files on your system. If you are missing any of these two files, then try running the WgaPluginInstall again to install the plug-in. If you would like to verify if these two files exist on your computer, follow the steps below.

    1. Using Windows Explorer, locate the folder where you have installed your Firefox Browser. For Firefox, the default location would be C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox .
    2. Browse to the plugins folder under the install folder.
    3. Verify if npLegitCheckPlugin.dll file exists in this folder.
    4. Browse to the components folder under the install folder.
    5. Verify if nsILegitCheckPlugin.xpt file exists in this folder.

    Are you ready to try again?

    After you have completed the steps above and the Wga plug-in has been sucessfully installed, let’s run the test again to make sure that the problem has been resolved.


    I did every thing and still can't get this thing validated it sends me right back to step one!  Can someone please assist me?
