The download page allows you to download the Windows or Java (TM) Viewers.
The viewer for Windows can run on most of Windows platforms: 98/Me/NT/2000/2000 Server/XP/2003 Server/Vista. Click Download and follow the installation instructions.
Note: If you wish to use the secure full SSL connection (security level 3), get a set of certificates from your administrator. Install the certificates on your computer by running the ImportCertificate utility provided with this viewer. Refer to the Security page.
The viewer for Java is truly cross-platform for all major Operating Systems including Windows, Linux, Mac OS, etc. However, before you can run the Java viewer on any computer, you must first install the Java Runtime Environment (JRE), which is freely available from Sun at http://www.java.com/. It is recommended to get JRE 5.0 or higher.
On Windows machines, a simple double mouse click should permit to start the viewer for Java. If the viewer does not start automatically, check the .JAR file association on your computer. It must be javaw.exe (and NOT javaws.exe). On other machines, download the KViewer.jar file into a folder and type:
java -jar KViewer.jar
Note: Some Browser will automatically change the file extension from .jar to .zip while you are downloading the file. If this is the case, please change the file extension back to .jar, so that you can run it properly.
Note: If you wish to use the secure full SSL connection (security level 3) with the Java Viewer, get a set of certificates from your administrator, download the Import Certificate Utility Impcert.jar file into a folder and type: java -jar Impcert.jar. Refer to the Security page.
Note: If you are using an older 1.5 Java VM version, download KViewer15.jar and type
java -jar KViewer15.jar.
If you don't know your Java VM version, type
The viewer does not work on old Java VM versions such as 1.4 and before. We recommend you upgrade your Java environment to the latest version.
