JSC library installation instructions

JSC was developed using Sun's Java 2 Platform Standard Edition v1.4.1. The software may not function properly if your Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is earlier than 1.4. The JRE can be downloaded free from Sun's Download Java 2 Platform website. WARNING: Installing a new JRE may cause problems with your existing Java applications that depend on earlier versions of the JRE.

To make the JSC library available to all your Java applications, use Sun's Java Extension Mechanism. That is, copy file JSC.JAR to the lib\ext directory in the directory where the JRE is installed on your PC: e.g. C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.1_02\lib\ext.


CultureLab application

(The applet version of this program can be run directly from this web site.)

Version 2.6 Stand-alone application - download version for Windows PC.
Requires MS Windows 95/98, ME, XP, 2000 or Windows NT
Download CULTURELAB.EXE (511 KB)
Updated 2 January 2004
Price Free for non-commercial and research use.
Support See contact page.

CultureLab application installation instructions

CULTURELAB.EXE is a conventional Windows installation program. You do not need to copy it to another directory. Run CULTURELAB.EXE and follow the instructions.

Note that you do NOT need to download the JSC library in order to run CultureLab: CULTURELAB.EXE will install the JSC classes it needs.

However, you do need the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.4 (or later) installed on your machine. If you do not have it, the JRE can be downloaded free from Sun's Download Java 2 Platform website. Standard Edition v1.4.1 is recommended. WARNING: Installing a new JRE may cause problems with your existing Java applications that depend on earlier versions of the JRE. A CD version of CULTURELAB.EXE is available that installs its own version of the JRE locally and avoids such problems. This is too large to make available from this website at the moment.
