The FSO Installer is a Java application. In order to run it, you'll need to install the Java Runtime

Re: Install Freespace open
You then download the FSO installer. Double-click on that file, and it'll start just like any other program. Then follow the instructions it gives you.

Re: Install Freespace open
Execly that is my problem.
The FSO installer is in a jar-format. So I unzipped (hope that word exist) it.
But after that I have 4 Folder...
com
lib
META-INF
resources

and 3 text documents:
gpl-2.0
lgpl-2.1
readme

In found now instraction in the readme- or gpl-file.

What is the next step after unzip it.
Do I have to copy the file into the Freespace folder?
Or what a have to do? :confused:

The whole day i feel like a idiot. Hope my question is not too stupid.

Re: Install Freespace open
Don't unzip the JAR file.  After you install Java, just double click the JAR file.  :)  Good luck!
Maybe someday God will give you a little pink toaster of your own.

 
Re: Install Freespace open
thx
Iam getting closer ;)
When I double click at teh JAR file. Winrar started and I get to the normal unzip view.
Even when I open the FSO.jar with java, the Java "Windows" pop up for a second and disappears while nothing happens.

Could it be that the FSO installer doesn't work on windows 10 or on Windows 84?

Re: Install Freespace open
The FSO Installer has been tested on numerous Windows versions, including Win 10 x64, and works on all of them. Whatever is going wrong is going wrong entirely on your end alone; I am not sure how to fix your issues, but it seems to me that the first thing to do would be to make sure that java is used to open .jar files by default.
