Windows Installation

Under Windows, unXmit is installed using an executable module created by a NSIS (Nullsoft Installation System) script;. A copy of the installation script is saved in unXmit's installation target directory. 

         The setup executable is tailored for one of two versions of unxmit. The setup file for 64-bit Java is Setup-unxmit-v1r1m0-win64.exe, Setup-unxmit-v1r1m0-win32.exe is for 32-bit Java.

         The version of unxmit you should use is dependent upon which version of Java you run on your PC, as opposed to the 32-bit/64-bit support of your operating system.

You could have a 64-bit version of Windows with a 32-bit Java installed; in that case, you should use unxmits 32-bit version. You could have both 32-bit and 64-bit JREs running on your PC. You can determine your PCs Java version with the following command java version issued from a Windows command box (as was done below). The Java will display whether the Java running on your machine is the 32-bit or 64-bit version. The version of unxmit you choose should correspond to that supported version. <_x0021_xml:namespace prefix=o /><_x0021_xml:namespace prefix=o /><_x0021_xml:namespace prefix=o />

         The installation targets unxmits 64-bit version to c:\Program Files\unxmit; the 32-bit version to c:\Program Files (x86).

         The installation creates ShortCut links from Window's Start Menu to unxmit executables

         The installation no longer defines unxmit as the default program associated with XMIT, XMITFILE, XMT, and XMI extensions. If you want unpack XMIT files through Windows file explorer, you should associate unxmitpgm.exe with XMIT, XMT and XMI extensions. Unxmitpgm.exe is in the following subdirectory c:\Program Files\unxmit\unxmitpgm.

         The installation script is contained in InstallUnXmit.nsi and can be viewed using any text editor.

         There are four installation panels. Go here to see the installation screenshots.

The following are the results of a "java -version" command. Use this command to determine whether your PC's Java environment is 32-bit or 64-bit.
