Reverse Engineering Download - I cannot install "reverse-engineering-1_6_7.jar"

Gary Cully 5 years ago updated by Rafał Strzaliński (Senior Engineer) 5 years ago 4

I could not install this add-in. I doubled-clicked the file and nothing happens. Then I installed Java's "server-jre-8u66-windows-x64.gz" and I installed chromeinstall-8u65.exe. I've changed Windows file associations to point to the .jar file type to javaw.exe. I tried running javaw.exe from the cmd prompt. These approaches did not work. I read the Reverse Engineering documentation on your websiste. I frankly have not grocked it. It seems there is very little content there relevant to this issue. I am using Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. I really want your product to work...so far, it looks like it will meet my needs very well.

Reverse engineering tool is a command line Java utility. Clicking on it will not work at all. We're working on making it more user friendly, esp. for Windows users. For some reason Java is not a first class citizen on Windows :(.
If you want use this tool, you'll need property configured Java Runtime.
2. Open Command prompt and call 'java' program. It will should prints a 'usage' info. If not please setup PATH environment variable (google: java windows path)

Let us know if it worked for you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.


Would you clarify how to "set PATH environment variablle (google: java window path)"?
