Installation of the Tachyon File Tools can be accomplished in the following three steps.
The Tachyon Un-Xmit Graphical User Interface requires Symantecs Java Native Runtime support. The Java Native Runtime can be installed before or after the Tachyon File Tools product is installed on your computer. If it is not installed, all of the programs provided with the Tachyon File Tools will operate except for the Tachyon Un-Xmit GUI.
To install the Java Native Runtime, download and run snjrt.exe. This will install and register the required files on your computer. This only needs to be done once. If another product has already installed Symantecs Java Native Runtime or if you are installing a new release of the Tachyon File Tools, you do not need to run snjrt.exe again. The Tachyon File Tools installation program will let you know if the required files are missing.
To install the Windows version of the Tachyon File Tools, run the provided self-extracting installation program. The installation program will create the required directories and copy the product files. The installation program will also create a Windows Program Group which will contain icons allowing you to easily start the Tachyon Un-Xmit GUI, view the documentation or remove the product.
To install the UNIX or Linux version of the Tachyon File Tools,
extract the files from the supplied tar file (which may need
to be decompressed).
Verify the Installation
After the installation is complete, you can verify that the Tachyon File Tools product is working correctly by running the supplied Installation Verification program (IVP).
To run the IVP on Windows, open a DOS window and change the current working directory to the IVP subdirectory of the directory into which you installed the Tachyon File Tools. Normally this directory would be C:\Tachyon\IVP. Sample files are included in this directory that you can use to test the Tachyon File Tools.
To run the IVP on UNIX or Linux, get a command line prompt and change the current working directory to the ivp subdirectory of the directory into which you extracted the product files. Sample files are included in this directory that you can use to test the Tachyon File Tools.
