Installing Unity Web Player for Windows XP

Attention: These instructions only apply if you are using Internet Explorer.  The Unity Web Player is not required for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, or Microsoft Edge.  We strongly recommend you use one of these browsers instead, as the plugin is being deprecated by Unity Technologies.
