Please note that moreStereo3D currently supports Google Earth 6. You can download it here: Download. The guide is designed to be brief and yet covering all needed steps on how to enable the 3D Stereo Plugin for Google Earth. This is a one-time setup and not needed to be repeated once setup properly.

I. Prepare the 3D Stereo Plugin

1) Please install moreStereo3D.

2) Start moreStereo3D.

II. Configure the 3D Stereo Plugin for Google Earth

Download and install Google Earth 6.02.

3) Right click the moreStereo3D Tray Icon (next to your system time) and select "more3D Stereo Enabler"

4) Click the "Locate known Apps" Button. The more3D stereo enabler will search the folders "C:\Program Files" and "C:\Program Files (x86)" for your Google Earth installation and you can apply the 3D Stereo Plugin for Google Earth.

In case you have installed Google Earth into a non-standard installation directory, please continue with step 5). If the more3D Stereo Enabler found your Google Earth installation properly, please continue on step 8)

5) Click the "Add Application" Button.

6) Navigate to your Google Earth directory. The folder might look close to this:
