How do you install the Shockwave plugin on FF Portable with no admin rights?

I've been wanting to install the shockwave plugin for firefox, but I don't have admin rights. I have access to a computer that has admin rights, if that helps. When I searched for ways to install the plugin it said that I had to redirect the installer or something to FFP, i can't do this. Thanks

alternate method

https://portableapps.com/support/firefox_portable#plugins

1. Install the plugin in a local copy of Firefox (on your hard drive)
2. Locate your plugins directory (usually C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins\)
3. Copy the plugin you need from there to your FirefoxPortable\Data\plugins directory (Some Exmaples: For Flash, copy NPSWF32.dll... for Shockwave, copy np32dsw.dll)

Need admin rights once

wikiHow: How to Use Mozilla Firefox, Portable Edition

Read the first part of Step 4, and the second through fifth parts of Step 5. Should be good to go.

The wikiHow links back to the help file linked above, but the wikiHow is more up-to-date; being a wiki, anybody can update it as need be. Ain't open source awesome?

Whoops

Bit rusty. Spoiled on BBCode. Forgot the last quotation mark. Funny that it will still highlight red and look like a link, but still not click through. My bad. I just figured it was the site and would right itself on the next load or something; thanks for pointing it out. Should work right now.

as instructed

you will have to find a computer where you have a local installation of the Firefox and there you have to have admin rights to install the plugin.

From there you can then copy the plugins from the plugin folder.
They have names which can apparently vary depending on version.

From my firefox 3.x at work, I did copy following:
nppdf32.dll
npnul32.dll
npdeploytk.dll
npoff12.dll
ShockwavePlugin.class

It less me in the addons under pluginst that I have now 2 versions of shockwave installed, but anyway it seems not work fully compatible, since some online training course which I needed the shockwave for did not work with it, did only work on IE with shockwave installed.
