4.2 Editing the runAmineSuite.bat file


Now we need to edit the .bat file that starts Amine, telling it where the java.exe file is that we have just located.


  1. Open up Windows Explorer.

  2. Navigate to:

  3. Locate the "runAmineSuite.bat" file in the right pane.

  4. Right-click this file and choose "Rediger" (English: Edit):

  5. Notepad will open. Place the cursor just before "java", and press Ctrl-V. The path that was on the clipboard will be inserted.

  6. Now place a backslash ("\") between the path and "java".

  7. If there are any spaces in the path before "java", place the whole path (including "java") in "double quotes", e.g., like this:

    "C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_05\bin\java"

    The end-result should look something like the following:

  8. Save the file (File|Save).

  9. Close Notepad.

  10. You'r done with this step!


Next, we need to place a shortcut to the runAmineSuite.bat file on the desktop. This will allow us to start Amine easily.
