This page provides downloads of JSC-related files and installation instructions.
The process of downloading software involves transferring files from this web site to your computer's local hard drive.
To download a file, click on its name in a Download line below (the size of the file is shown in brackets after the file name).
What happens then depends on which browser you are using. The following assumes it is Internet Explorer.
You are advised to run your own anti-virus software on the downloaded file.
Follow the installation instructions for the specific file (see below).
The JSC library
N.B. The JSC library is incomplete and still under construction.
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.
(The applet version of this program can be run directly from this web site.)
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.
