How to activate standalone version


(mydoctortells) #1

Hello,

Thanks to the developers of languagetool.

I do not know how to install the standalone version.
I am using Microsoft Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 10 on my laptop.

My knowledge of programming is zero.

Kindly guide me.

Best,

Ashok Koparday

There's no need to install it, just unzip the *.zip and then run languagetool.jar by double clicking it.

Thank you very much dnaber.

I did not have java. With java installed I get the languagetool-user.
Thanks to the developers and the support team.

Regards,
Ashok Koparday

Hi there,
I have just downloaded and tried to install languagetool and have MS Home 7 and Java installed. However, when I double click on the file it a pop up says I have a Java exception. I can't understand why as I have jre7 installed. Is this the wrong file?
Advance thanks for useful suggestions.

Could you post a screen shot of the Java exception? (The file you need to double click is languagetool.jar.)

Hi again,
I clicked on the .jar file and the ensuing pop up is attached (hopefully).

Another user had this problem and I suggested moving the LanguageTool folder to C:\ (instead of some sub folder):

http://languagetool-user-forum.2306527.n4.nabble.com/get-message-A-Java-exception-has-occurred-when-triying-to-install-standalone-td4640940.html

Unfortunately, the user never replied, but that's what you could try.

Thanks for the quick response. I'll give it a go and let you know how I get
on.
Cheers

Hi there,
This is just to let you know that it hasn't worked - sadly!
Thanks for your efforts.

Sorry it didn't help. You might want to search the web for "A Java exception has occurred", as this isn't a LT specific problem.


(Nettelhof) #11

Thanks, will do this weekend!

i've downloaded the zip file of languagetool 2.8. and exctracted it but i dont see any .jar file that i can double click it.


(Daniel Naber) #13

There should be three JAR files in the top folder: languagetool.jar, languagetool-server.jar, and languagetool-commandline.jar. If they are not there, please try downloading again, your download might be incomplete. The one you probably want to start is languagetool.jar.
