Unix

Dizzy-Unix.tgz [5.7 MB]

To install Dizzy on Unix, unpack the above-linked gzipped tar archive file. This will create a subdirectory "Dizzy" in the directory where you unpacked the archive file. Within this subdirectory, there is a subdirectory "bin". In the "bin" subdirectory, edit the file "runDizzy.sh" and modify the "JAVA_BIN" setting to whatever command you use to run java (if "java" is in your Unix PATH, then you do not need to edit "runDizzy.sh").

To run Dizzy, change directory to the "Dizzy/bin" subdirectory of the directory where you unpacked the Dizzy-Unix.tgz archive file. Then run the "runDizzy.sh" script.

Windows

Dizzy-WinXP.zip [6.3 MB]

To install Dizzy on Windows XP, unpack the above-linked ZIP archive file. This will create a subdirectory "Dizzy" in the directory where you unpacked the archive file. Within this subdirectory, there is a subdirectory "bin". In the "bin" subdirectory, edit the file "runDizzy.bat" and modify the setting for "DIZZYPATH" to be the complete directory specification of the location where you installed Dizzy, including the "Dizzy" subdirectory that was made when you unpacked the Zip archive. For example, if you unpacked the Zip archive in the directory location "U:\", then the DIZZYPATH variable should be set to "U:\Dizzy". In the same file (runDizzy.bat), you will also need to edit the command that runs Dizzy (the line starting with "C:\Program Files"), so that the correct Java binary for your computer system is being executed. If "java" is already in your path, you can shorten the first part of that command to

java.exe -mx500000000

To run Dizzy, execute the "runDizzy.bat" file.
