Installing and running ModTest

Windows installation

To install ModTest under Windows, download and execute the file modtest2.14_setup.exe. You can then run ModTest from the Start menu or by using the desktop icon.

Linux installation

To install ModTest under Linux, download the file modtest2.14.jar and put it in any convenient directory. You can then run ModTest using the command:

java -jar modtest2.14.jar

You will, of course, need to use the full pathname for modtest2.14.jar if it's not in your current directory. You will probably want to create a shortcut, launcher, shell script, or whatever to save you having to keep typing the above command.

Java requirement

Since ModTest is written in Java, you will need a copy of the Java JRE (version 6 or later) in order to run it. If you are unable to run ModTest, try the command:

java -version

If you get an error from this command, then you do not have the JRE installed, and you will have to download it from Oracle.


Before you can use ModTest you will need to get a registration key.
