Please follow the first 4 steps. Step 5 is useful in case of problems.

1 - Download Avalon Virtual software from: :
http://www.virtual.avalon-routing.com/2 ... n-virtual/
or latest version url listed in the "download" thread on this forum.

2 - Ensure you have 64 bits Java installed on your machine. Avalon does not work with 34 bit version of Java, you have to install Java JDK and JRE form Oracle web site
-- JRE 8 : => https://www.oracle.com/java/technologie ... loads.html

-- JDK 8 : => https://www.oracle.com/java/technologie ... loads.html

Please unzip the downloaded archive " AvalonVirtual-x.x.x.7z " . You should have an Avalon Virtuel folder like this:

• Under Windows, double-clic on AvalonVirtual.exe to launch Avalon.

• Under Linux, double-clic on runAvalon.sh to launch Avalon.

• Under macOS, when you launch Avalon for the first time, please right click on AvalonVirtual.jar (thi is due to Apple Gatekeeper program). Following runs can be launched via double click on AvalonVirtual.jar. This method is to be used after any install on a new release of Avalon.

• It is also possible to run Avalon by double clicking on AvalonVirtual.jar
