Installing Processing

  1. Download processing. Please make sure you are downloading the latest release. There are two versions, one with Java, one without. If you are not sure, download the one with Java.

    • For those who knows what the JDK is and wants to install Processing along with JDK: You need x32 version of the JDK no matter whether you are running an x32 or x64 system.
  2. Create a directory "Programs" on the C: disk, in the root. If "C:\Programs" exists already, skip this step.
  3. Extract the entire directory to C:\Programs (note, not "C:\Program Files"). if you are reinstalling Processing, remove the entire processing directory first.
  4. Create a shortcut on your desktop to "Processing.exe" for easy access.
    • Note, if you are running Windows Vista or Seven, you might have to run Processing in "Windows XP compatibility mode" and also you should run it with Administrator rights, or you will encounter problems such as difficulties in accessing the functions in the Help menu.
