Protege-OWL 4 FAQ
Protege-OWL 4.x Frequently Asked Questions
How do I install Protege-OWL?
Protege-OWL is available for download from the main Protege website. If you are new to Protege-OWL, we ask that you read about the two different installation options currently available to determine which best suits your needs:
- InstallyAnywhere platform independent installer program - this is the recommended method of installation for beginners and also for users that want a "double-clickable" executable file. The primary reason we recommend this method for beginners is that Protege-OWL requires a 1.5 version of the Java Virtual Machine to be present. The installer makes it very easy for you to install the correct version of the Java VM - or - if you already have Java installed, you can indicate the location during the install process. The installer also provides an executable file that you can double-click on to launch Protege-OWL, e.g., "Protege.exe" on Windows, etc.
- ZIP file - we provide a ZIP file for more advanced users that are familiar with how to make sure the proper version of Java is present. This is also a convenient installation for users that do not require an executable file to launch Protege-OWL.
