To run Lumec3D, you will need the 3DVIA Player from Virtools  plug-in. In most cases the plug-in will install and execute itself automatically without any problem.

Nevertheless, your download may be blocked if you are using Internet Explorer on Windows XP with Service Pack 2. If you notice a yellow bar at the top of your Internet Explorer window stating that the download is blocked, click on it and choose “Authorize the content”

You can try this link bellow if browser installation fails:

NPAPI support by Chrome

The 3DVia player plug-in for web browsers relies on the cross platform plugin architecture NPAPI, which has long been supported by all major web browsers.

Google announced in September 2013 plans to remove NPAPI support from Chrome by "the end of 2014", thus effectively dropping support for Silverlight, Java, Facebook Video and other similar NPAPI based plugins.

As of September 2015, starting with Chrome Version 45, Google dropped support for NPAPI, so Lumec3D users have to use another alternative.
