Downloading and Installing
the DANA-WH Client
To install the DANA-WH client application,
one must download version 1.4 of Sun Microsystems’
Java Runtime Environment (JRE) software.
This software download can be accessed
from the DANA-WH Web site (http://www.dana-wh.net/download/)
or the ATL Web page (http://atl.ndsu.edu/archive/).
During the initial JRE setup, Sun’s
new Java Web Start (JWS) will be installed
on the user’s computer as well.
JWS allows DANA-WH users to run the network’s
client software from their desktop without
the aid of a standard web-browser. Once
the JWS installation is complete, the
user may access the DANA- WH client software
by returning to the DANA-WH website and
selecting the “Launch Application”
hyperlink. The user is only required to
return to the web site once after installation
in order to launch the application. Every
other time after the first, the user may
launch the application by clicking the
applications icon now found on the user’s
computer desktop environment. If a user
wishes to access the 3D model interface,
he/she must additionally download and
install the latest Java3D JRE. A link
to this software download is available
from either the ATL
websites. An installation tutorial is
available on both web sites.
