JCarnatic Program and installation instructions

  1. JCarnatic needs Java 1.5.0 or newer. Download the latest version of Java and install.

  2. Next download the deluxe version Soundbank provided by Oracle (Sun Microsystems). Works with others, but deluxe version is better.

  3. Unzip the above soundbank, and place the ".gm" extension file into "C:\Program Files\Java\jre\lib\audio" (could be slightly different on your computer) and into "<jdk-install-dir>\jre\lib\audio" folders. If "audio" folder doesn't exist, create it.

  4. Download JCarnatic.

  5. Unzip the above zip file.

  6. Double-click on the "JCarnatic.jar" file (if you want, create a shortcut to this file on your desktop) and enjoy.

  7. One condition though. Please give me your feedback on the program. I want to improve it. Thanks.

  8. If you need the source code, please write to me through the Feedback page and I will be happy to provide.
