A Java 2 Runtime Environment (JRE) self-extracting file for Windows 95/98/NT4.0/2000/XP, containing the Java 2 Virtual Machine, can be downloaded directly from here, or by choosing the adequate JRE version for the used computer platform at
In both cases, execute the downloaded JRE self-extracting file to run the installation program and follow the installation instructions. Here you can find the installation notes for JRE 1.3.1 version for Windows 95/98/NT4.0/2000/XP.

Apple users need al least Mac OS X to run MyWEST, since only Mac OS X includes, as core component, a full version of Java 2 Virtual Machine (precisely a Java 2 Standard Edition, version 1.4.2).

To use database functionalities implemented in MyWEST, a suitable Relational Data Base Management System (e.g. MS-Access, MySQL, MS-SQL Server, Oracle, Informix, ...) must be available. However, if a RDBMS is not available, the extracted data can be saved in text excel file format (ASCII text files with ".xls" extension). content: content:
