After receiving new plugins from Veryant Support follow these 3 steps to install them into the isCOBOL IDE:

1. Under the isCOBOL IDE 2010 R1 installation folder change into the dropins folder (e.g. C:Program FilesVeryantisCOBOL IDE2010dropins) and rename any old plugins you are replacing by adding ".old" to the end of their names

2. Extract the files/folders from the new plugins .zip files into the dropins folder

3. Restart the isCOBOL IDE and from the menu "Help>>About isCOBOL IDE 2010" click on "Installation Details" and the "Plugins" tab to verify that the new plugin versions show up correctly.
