Before you can use the VISITview in local mode, you must have the Java Runtime Environment installed and running properly on your machine. Installation only takes a few minutes. Follow these steps:
If you are using Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP then VISITview comes with the Java Runtime Envrionment you need...and you do not need to install it separately. If you want to do a "standard" installation of Java, however, continue on......
If the JRE installed okay, the response should be something like:
Java(tm) Runtime Loader Version 1.3.x
followed by usage information. If instead of this response, you
get something like "command java not found", the most likely cause is that
your PATH environment variable was not properly set to include a path to
the directory containing the jre.exe. If this is the case,
you should modify the PATH to include this directory.
