Geeks will be happy to know that it is also extensible (you can add Java written plug-ins to Yapbam).

Installation:

Windows

  1. Launch to downloaded application. Then, choose a folder where to install Yapbam on your hard disk, or on an USB key.
  2. Once the installation is done, double-click on the yapbam.exe application in the installation folder.

If a window appears with the message "This application requires a Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0", it means you have to install the Java Runtime Environment. The simplest way to do it is to click the ok button: You will be redirected to the Java download page. Download and install the suggested package. Then launch Yapbam again. If you can't access to the Java download page (if you're currently not connected to the Internet), you can get it later at: http://java.com/download.

Others OS

  1. Extract the content of yapbam.zip file ... to a new folder where you want on your hard disk, or on an USB key.
  2. Double-click on the yapbam.sh script file.
  3. What to do if it fails ?
    • Ensure that you have Java installed on your computer.
      • Under Linux a simple way is to launch a terminal then type the command:
        • java -version
      • If the command fails or if it reports a version older than 1.6.0, please install the latest java version with the command:
      • sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre.
    • Under MacOs X Lion, Java is not installed by default anymore. To install java, please have a look at Apple documentation: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1421
    • MacOS has the unfortunate idea of opening the executable scripts with a text editor, instead of launching them as programs. To remedy this, go to the information (Apple-I on yapbam.sh) and ask osX to open the file using the "terminal" application (in utilities).
