2.Installation

2.1. Preparation

(warning) Attention

If you have already installed a version of R2EdiViewer:
  • Backup all files and directories from the program directory
  • Use the Software upgrade manager for an automatic upgrade.

    If you prefer a manual upgrade, start R2EdiViewerUninstall.exe
    for uninstalling and then start Setup...exe for the installation of the new version.


R2EdiViewer needs Java 8 - 11.

The currently installed JRE (Java Runtime Environment) on the computer is used.
However, if there is a Java Development Kit (JDK) on the machine, it will be used.

If the JDK is based on a manual ZIP file installation (e.g. an AdoptOpenJDK
was unpacked into the directory C: \ProgramData\JavaZIP), then R2EdiViewer needs
the following Windows registry entry with the path to the JDK.

javasoft-JDK-ZIP.reg
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\JDK\ZIP]
"JavaHome"="C:\\ProgramData\\JavaZIP"


 

2.2. Setup

By starting Setup...exe R2EdiViewer is installed in the desired directory.
