Support > Installation Guide (R8) > Installation of Wagby (Zip file format)

I will explain the procedure to install downloaded Wagby on Windows OS.

Please prepare a development machine to operate Wagby.Please refer to the development environment and the operation environment for the specification of the development machine which is required.

Before installing Wagby, please install Java. I have summarized Java acquisition and installation method.

Please use Java 64 bit version.It does not work with the 32 bit version.

Please get Wagby from the download page.This is a ZIP file format.Save this file on your desktop.

Figure 1 Downloaded file

Right-click on the icon in Figure 1 and select "Expand All ..." to decompress the ZIP file.

Figure 2 Unpacking the ZIP file

In Windows OS, please expand to the folder for each user, not the Program Files folder.Let's decompress it on the desktop here.

If "Japanese name" is included in the installation folder, it may not work properly.
Example: C: \ Users \ Taro Yamada \ Desktop
In this case please specify the folder which does not include the Japanese name again.

In the wizard in Figure 3, change the extraction destination to Desktop as shown in Figure 4.
(If you keep in Figure 3, another Wagby - 8.0.0 folder will be created in the Wagby - 8.0.0 folder.Avoid this.)

Please open "License.pdf" included in the folder of Figure 5 with PDF viewing software such as Acrobat Reader and check the Wagby license agreement.

Figure 6 Confirm the license agreement

If you are using any anti-virus software, please specify the folder where Wagby was installed as "Excluded files (folder)" in the setting.This correspondence stabilizes Wagby's build behavior.

By the procedure so far, the installed development kit will operate as a license of "trial kit".

Regular license purchaser

First Time People

Let's check the operation of Wagby.If you install for the first time please go to "Tutorial".

Who will be updated

Please clear the web browser's cache to update new features and defect fixes in Wagby Designer.(If you do not clear the cache, screen drawing may be distorted.)

Wagby's distribution file (zip compression format file) has a version number of "Wagby - 8.xx". Therefore, you can install several different versions of Wagby on the same development machine. Since folders are different, there is no conflict.

Uninstalling Wagby is completed by deleting the set of folders in Figure 7.

Wagby does not write to the Windows OS registry.

This section explains how to create a shortcut for starting and ending WagbyDesigner and place it on the desktop.

Prepare the shortcut icons of two batch files "startup.bat" and "shutdown.bat" in the bin folder in the wagbydesigner folder.

This section explains how to create a shortcut icon for startup.bat. In the same way, you can also provide a shortcut icon for shutdown.bat.

Correspondence at the time of Wagby version up

Due to version upgrade of Wagby, installation folder name changes.(Example Wagby - 8.0.0 becomes Wagby - 8.1.0.)

In this case, you can edit the properties of the shortcut icon directly to match the newly installed Wagby.Or re-create the shortcut icon by repeating the above steps.
