POS General (Java) Installation Guide

The JVTC is delivered in the form of a single zip file, usually named This file contains all required dependencies except for the Java Development Kit which can be downloaded at After installation of the JDK (at this time, the correct version is JDK 6u10, but this may change as new versions are released. Get the newest one), follow these steps for installation on Windows:
  1. Find where the JDK was installed to (typically C:\Program Files\Java\jdk_1.6.10\ or similar, look for the one with the letters jdk and the biggest numbers).
  2. Go to the bin folder inside it.
  3. Copy the address.
  4. Go to Control Panel and open System.
  5. Click on Advanced, then Environment Variables, then look at the System Variables listing.
  6. Look for PATH.
  7. Edit the PATH. At the end, put a semicolon like ; followed by the JDK bin address you copied earlier.
After that:
  1. Ask Kevin Francis for the file. As the TC is still in production, and the development environment is rather complex, checking out the source and compiling is not recommended.
  2. Extract the file.
  3. You will find a folder named dist.
  4. Open it and you will find several files and folders. Double click TCClient.jar.
  5. The JVTC will run.
