How To Install
To run OpenSeSim the Java runtime environment has to be installed on your computer. If you haven't already installed it, go to the Java download page , download and install it.
Download the latest release of SeSim here: SeSim-002-alpha
It's a JAR file (SeSim-002-alpha.jar) that can usually be started by double click if the java runtime environment is correctly installed.
If you can't start the JAR file by double click, you can try to run it from command line by typing the following command:
java -jar SeSim-002-alpha.jar
Be sure you are in the same directory where SeSim-002-alpha.jar is stored when issuing the above command. Otherwise you have to specify the full path to the JAR file. On Windows that might look like this if the JAR file is on your Desktop:
java -jar C:\Users\YouUserName\Desktop\SeSim-002-alpha.jar
