2.1 Installing the Frontend

The frontend has a graphical user interface written in Java, so you'll need a relatively recent installation of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE). Our frontend requires Java version 1.5 or above. If you don't have a recent JRE installed, you can install one (for free, of course!) by visiting the Java website. Once you've installed the JRE, you can download an appropriate installer for your workstation by visiting the PPW website.
