1. Check / Install Java
Java (JDK) may have been installed in your system and to check that, do a quick check by running cmd and type in
>java -version. If it is already in your system, it will show something like this:
java version "1.6.0_18"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_18-b07)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 16.0-b13, mixed mode, sharing)
If it is not found, you should download the latest stable release of Java Development Kit (JDK) from Oracle.
2. Set Up Java Environment
First, get the path of JAVA_HOME. This is normally found under C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_xx.
Go to Control Panel > System > Environment Variables > user variables
Click “New” and set JAVA_HOME as variable name and input the path found above as variable value.
3. Install OpenRemote
Get a copy of free OpenRemote controller from http://sourceforge.net/projects/openremote/files/OpenRemote-Controller-2.0.2.zip/download
Go to its directory and enter “openremote run” in the command line window.
