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 ParaView installation and you can apply the 3D Stereo Plugin for ParaView.
