Our activities take advantage of several freely available system components: Java, Quicktime for Java, and Macromedia Flash.
The primary engine of most of these models is the Molecular Workbench.
Below you will find:
- a summary of what needs to be installed
- a way to test for installed system components
- and some simple installation instructions for these components
For computers with one user
|For computers with multiple users
(ex. a computer in a lab)
You may have some of the above software already installed on your machine. To test for Java (with Java Web Start), and Quicktime for Java, press the button below.
A window should appear similar to the image shown here, indicating that Java Webstart works, your Java version is OK, Quicktime for Java is installed, and Quicktime is Enabled to play Flash media.
|If the "Webstart Works!" window appears, and all messages are green, then you only need to install the PedagogicaActivities folder. Below are installation instructions for this and other necessary components. Once all installations are complete you are ready to launch activities from the database.|
