System Requirements

jQuizShow is written in 100% Pure Javatm 2 (v1.3) and, thus, can be run on any platform that supports Java (Windowstm, Mac tm, Linux, UNIX, etc.).

jQuizShow requires that the Java 2 Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.3 or later be installed on your system in order to run. A quick test can be performed to see if you have the JRE installed on your system and to determine what version you have. Execute the following at your system's command prompt:

java -version

If you have the JRE installed properly on your system, this command will run and display the JRE version information. If this command does not work, you will need to install a version of the JRE on your system. If the reported version of JRE is less than 1.3, you will need to install a more recent version of the JRE on your system.

Getting the Java Runtime Environment (JRE)

Versions of the JRE are provided by Sun Microsystems, Inc. for the Windows, Linux and Solaris platforms. To download the latest version of the JRE for these platforms, please visit the Java(TM) Platform, Standard Edition web page, and click on the "Download Now" link.

For Mac users, Java is built into Mac OS X. For more information regarding this, please see the Apple Computer, Inc. Mac OS X - Technologies - Java 2 web page.

For most other platforms, a third-party port of Java is available. For information on the platforms on which a port of Java is available, see Sun's Java(TM) Platform Ports web page.
