How to run jlGui ?
There are severals ways to launch jlGui on your local machine. In ANY case you DO need a J2SE 1.3 or higher (J2SE 1.4 or 1.5). From the simpliest to the most difficult (and customizable) solution you can :

Solution 1 - Use the shorcut added by the installer
This will work only if you've installed jlGui through the friendly installer

Solution 2 - Double-click on jlGui JAR file
This will work only if *.jar files are associated to java or javaw:

Solution 3 - Use Java WebStart :
Java WebStart is a good and friendly solution to run an up to date jlGui version. You don't even need to download and install jlGui.
