Starting the Installer Manually

After downloading the Process Dashboard Installer, you can launch it on most systems simply by double-clicking on the file. However, in a few rare cases this may not work as expected (for example, WinZip may appear, showing the contents of the installer file). In such cases it is simple to start the installer manually by following the steps below.

Windows

  • Click on the file with the right mouse button, and choose "Open With > Java(TM)" in the menu that appears. If this option is not available, continue with the steps below.
  • Save the Installer in an easy-to-find directory like "C:\"
  • Click "Start > Run". In the window that appears, type:
            java -jar C:\pdash-install-main-2-4.jar

    and click OK. (Note that the part in blue should match the name of the installer file you downloaded - edit if necessary.)

Unix

  • Save the Installer in an easy-to-find directory like "~/"
  • In a terminal window, type the command:
            java -jar ~/pdash-install-main-2-4.jar

    (Note that the part in blue should match the name of the installer file you downloaded - edit if necessary.)
