Alternative Installations

 

For Any System

You should be able to run Stats Homework on any computer with any operating system that has the Java 8 Runtime Environment (JRE) installed on it.  You should install Oracle’s JRE.  You must download and install Java 8, and not one of the more recent versions.

Once you have installed the Java 8 JRE on your computer, make sure to add the ‘…/bin’ directory to your path.  To check your Java installation, open a terminal window and enter: Java -version.  You should get a report from the JRE like this one:

C:\Users\Victor>java -version
java version "1.8.0_251"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_251-b08)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 25.251-b08, mixed mode, sharing)

Next, download the self-contained archive file (.jar) that contains the Stats Homework program: click here to download self-contained archive

Unpack the downloaded file and place StatsHomework.jar on your desktop or in some other folder.  Try double-clicking this file on your system.  If Java is installed properly, this will often run the program.  If not, you can open a terminal window and run Stats Homework with a command:

C:\Users\Victor\Desktop>java -jar StatsHomework.jar
