- Windows installation

A Windows version with auto-installer is available from sourceforge.net 

This auto-installer doesn't require any installed JRE and Lilypond packages.

Two versions are available:

WINDOWS OS 32 bits: setup32-jniz-1-x-x.exe 

WINDOWS OS 64 bits: setup64-jniz-1-x-x.exe (solver up to 3x faster but incompatible with 32 bits OS)

Do not forget to ignore or desactivate the Windows SmartScreen (click on additional notes).

Windows 7 & 8 users: run the setup AND Jniz as Administrator (right click on icons). Otherwise, you will get strange I/O behaviours especially with Lilypond (pdf, midi etc..)

(tested under Windows XP, 7, 8.1 32/64bits).

- Linux installation

Install OpenJDK or JDK (imperatively 1.7 or 7 version). 

Install Lilypond.

Download the package jniz.tar.gz from sourceforge.net. Extract it and run the command jniz.sh (or ./jniz.sh from a terminal)

Open Nautilus, then go to Edit -> Preferences. Open Behavior tab and you'll find the options to set the file manager behavior when you open executable text files.

(tested under Ubuntu 12.04).

- OS X installation

Download the package jniz.dmg from sourceforge.net 

Open it: Ctrl+click or right click on the Jniz application and select Open from the contextual menu (the double-click does not work, OS X does not open any app from unidentified developer).

You can also follow the (cousin) Linux way : download the package jniz.tar.gz from sourceforge.net, extract it and run the command ./jniz.sh from a terminal (search terminal in the Finder).

Install JDK or OpenJDK (imperatively 7 or 1.7 version). 

Install Lilypond.

You must check and maybe retype the folder path + command of LilyPond and Python. Go to the Settings menu and to the LilyPond export options:



Usually the LilyPond folder should be /Applications/LilyPond.app/Contents/Resources/bin/

But it depends on your LilyPond installation.

There is (normally) no change for the Python path and command, you can let python in the text field.

(tested under Mac Os X 10.9).
