# Capsis Installation Guide

Note: If you are a member of the Capsis co-development community, you have access to the complete version through our versionning system, please refer to the developper installation guide.

In case of trouble during the installation, have a look at the Capsis FAQ.

Capsis may be installed with the same installer on machines under Windows, Linux or Mac OS X.

## 1. Ensure java 1.8 is installed on your computer

To check the correct version of Java is installed and available, open a Terminal and check the answer to this command (must answer java 1.8.x)

# type this command
java -version

# you should get this kind of answer (note the "1.8.x")
java version "1.8.0_101"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_101-b13)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.101-b13, mixed mode)


## 2. Run the Capsis installer

Run the installer (capsis-setup-X.jar) by double clicking on it and follow the install instructions. If double clicking on a .jar file does not launch the installer on your system, open a terminal, change to the install directory and type

java -jar capsis-setup-file-name.jar

Where can I install Capsis ?

• Under Windows Vista, you must install in a directory where you have write privileges (for instance Documents).
• Under Windows, prefer directory names without spaces nor accents.
# Risky option !
C:\Users\Hélène\Documents\Master\capsis

# Safer
C:\capsis

## 3. Start Capsis

When the install is complete, use the Start menu or the Desktop shortcut to start Capsis.

If you cannot find a shortcut, open a terminal, move (with cd, see below) to the Capsis installation directory (often named 'capsis4/') and execute the capsis launching script.

How to open a terminal

• Windows: the terminal is also called 'Command prompt', you can find it by using the 'Type here to search' text field in the Windows Start menu: search 'Terminal' (or type 'cmd' in this search text field and Enter).
• Linux: open a Shell
• MacOSX: Terminal is an application (in Applications > Utilities)
# To start Capsis under Windows, if capsis4/ is in the 'C:\Users\Arthur' folder
C:\> cd Users\Arthur\capsis4
C:\Users\Arthur\capsis4> capsis

# Note: to move back to the upper directory:
C:\Users\Arthur\capsis4> cd ..
C:\Users\Arthur>

# To start Capsis under Linux or MacOSX, if capsis4/ is in the '/home/Arthur' folder
/$cd /home/Arthur/capsis4 /home/Arthur/capsis4$ sh capsis.sh
