Here is the Microsoft Windows release with the Java runtime environment
bundled. Extract the zip file and run JES.exe (or jes.bat) to start
JES. Click on Edit>Options to set your preferences.
Here is the Microsoft Windows release without the Java runtime environment bundled. Download this only if you already have a Java runtime environment version 1.6 or greater!
Here is the Mac OS X release. Open the disk image and drag the
application to your Applications directory, and double-click to run. It
requires OS 10.4 (Tiger). Fixed 1 Oct 2008
For Linux and others
Here is the release for Linux and other Unixes. Extract the zip file
and run JES.sh to start JES. You'll need to have already installed Java
1.6. Strange errors will probably result with earlier Java versions!
You may need to chmod JES.sh to be able to execute it.
If you're having trouble with JES on Vista:
Try JES 4.2 Beta found below - this version has some changes that we believe should fix the previous problems with Vista.
We have a stop-gap measure to suggest for Vista. The current JES.bat
executes the JRE that we provide with JES, and it’s a JRE that has not
been Vista-approved. We’ve modified it so that it uses whatever Java is
on the system path. Here’s the process we suggest for Vista-using
students who are having trouble with Windows JES:
- Install Java for Vista from http://www.java.sun.com
- Copy jes-vista.bat.zip into the same folder as JES.bat.
- Double-click JES-vista.bat, and approve whatever dialogs arise because Vista is security-obsessed.
