Perform the steps in the section if you are installing the eVe SDK under Linux.
The eVe SDK includes a Java runtime environment (JRE). If your installed JRE is not the same version as the one supplied, we suggest you allow the installation program to install the included JRE to ensure proper functionality. The SDK also includes a set of sample data.
1. Insert the eVe SDK installation CD into the machine on which you are installing.
2. Start a command line session and change your current directory to /installs/Linux on the CD or to the location where you downloaded eVe.
3. Issue the following command:
java -cp install.zip install
The installer displays a progress bar and displays the Introduction window.
4. Click Next to continue. The License Agreement window appears.
5. Read the terms of the license agreement. If you agree to the terms, continue to the next step. If you do not agree to the terms, click Cancel to exit the installation program.

Click Search for Others to have the installation program automatically scan your system for a Java VM.
Click Choose Another... to manually locate a Java VM on your system.
