How to install the tool

could some one pl guide me to get this tool installed in my desktop. I have down loaded it from site and got a zip folder, How to install it in system ?

Hi, there’s not much installation to do: just unzip the *.zip file and then start languagetool.jar, usually by double clicking it. If that doesn’t work, it probably means you don’t have Java 8 installed.

on unzipping i am getting list of files and not language tool jar. does it mean I do not have jave in my system?

I’m not sure which file you downloaded, but when you download and unzip it, it will contain languagetool.jar.

OP, search for the language jar file in the zip file. I just tried to execute and it’s asking for a JAVA program. Do I need java to run it on a standalone desktop?
