jQuizShow is written in 100% Pure Javatm 2 (v1.3) and, thus, can
be run on any platform that supports Java (Windowstm,
Mactm, 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:
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.
