The easiest option is to use the binary builds that exist for both Windows- and Linux-based systems. These are completely stand-alone, without any dependencies on other software (i.e. you don’t need Python to use them).


Download the Windows binaries using the link in the right-hand bar. Then extract the contents of the ZIP file to any directory you like. You should now be able to run jpylyzer from your command prompt. For example, assuming that you installed the contents of the ZIP file to the directory C:\jpylyzer\, type or paste the following line into a command prompt window:


This should give you the jpylyzer helper message.

Running jpylyzer without typing the full path

Optionally, you may also want to add the full path of the jpylyzer installation directory to the Windows Path environment variable. Doing so allows you to run jpylyzer from any directory on your PC, without having to type the full path. In Windows 7 you can do this by selecting settings from the Start menu; then go to control panel/system and click on advanced system settings. Then click on the environment variables button. Finally, locate the Path variable in the system variables window, click on Edit and add the full jpylyzer path (this requires local Administrator privileges). The settings take effect once you open a new command prompt.


Debian packages of jpylyzer exist for AMD6 and i386 Linux architectures. To install, simply download the Debian package using the link in the right-hand bar, double-click on it and select Install Package. Alternatively you can also do this in the command terminal by typing:

sudo dpkg -i jpylyzer_1.10.1_amd64.deb

In both cases you need to have superuser privileges.

Python (any platform)

Instead of using the binary builds, you can also download jpylyzer’s source code to run jpylyzer as a Python script. This should work on any platform, but note that this requires either Python 2.7 (earlier versions won’t work), or Python 3.2 or later (3.0 and 3.1 won’t work either!).
