AB Extension Pack
Q. The hpHosts lookup extensions are not working?

Q. How do I add support for additional languages?
A. At present, only English and Russian language packs are available. To add extra languages, click the Settings > Language > Edit Language File menu, then translate the items in the file, into your language of choice.

Q. How do I selectively add/remove extensions once they are installed?
A. At present, the existing extensions must be uninstalled first, then the installer ran again. However, a utility is being worked on for the next release that will allow you to do this directly, without the need for uninstalling/re-installing.
NB: If you are simply adding extensions, rather than removing them, you can skip the uninstall and just run the installer again.
Note: version 1.1.3 now includes a beta release of the ABEP GUI (helper) utility that allows you to add/remove/modify extensions, without having to run the installer each time.
Q. Can I have my own extensions included in the pack?
A. You certainly can!. If you would like us to include extensions you have created, please send them along to us at:
