Install and Run Mars24
The Mars24 package for Windows comes as a ZIP archive. You must manually extract this archive. Some versions of Windows allow you to run programs from a zipped archive without extraction, but if you try that with Mars24, it won't work.
The Mars24 archive contains a folder called Mars24J which holds the following items:
- Mars24.exe application.
- Martian landmarks file "marslandmarks.xml".
- "Jars" directory containing program code.
- "Sourcemaps" directory containing extra sample Mars maps.
- A README file.
- A subdirectory called "help" which includes user documentation.
To run Mars24, double-click on the Mars24.exe application icon.
Debugging Installation Problems
If you find that after download and installation, Mars24 for Windows won't start, a possible reason might be that you don't have a Java Runtime Engine (JRE) installed on your computer. Go to the Java.com website and click on the "Free Download" button.
Note: It is possible to have a Java plugin enabled in your web browser which allows you to run applets, but not have a JRE installed which allows you to run Java applications.
