FAQs - Installation

Once you have downloaded the installer, simply double-click on the file to run the setup.

If you experience any problems running the downloaded file, make sure that you are loading the file with Java 6 (or better).

Note: on some systems, an archive utility (WinZip, etc.) may have been set as the default application for JAR files. While JAR files are (in essence) zip archives, they should not be associated with a compression utility such as WinZip. Windows users should right-click on the file and select "Open With...", choosing your Java installation from the resulting menu (typically C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.X.0\bin\javaw.exe).

If you are installing on a Windows Vista or Windows 7 machine DO NOT install the application in the c:\Program Files directory.  This has to do with Windows Vista and Windows 7 User Access Controls.

I recommend installing the program in c:\HeroCombatManager

If you are installing on a Mac DO NOT install in the Application folder.
