Run RoboHobby software under MS Windows XP

RoboHobby is Java/SWING application is written in Java, using SWING GUI.

Theoretically it should work everywhere - under every OS, where JVM is installed.
Practically it was tested under Windows XP and KNOPPIX 5.0.
In reality this application is designed mainly for KNOPPIX 5.0.
(KNOPPIX is Debian-based Linux Live CD).
But some functionality works under Windows XP too.

Right now there are 3 ways to run RoboHobby software:
1) Load KNOPPIX-based RoboHobby Linux Live CD
2) Run RoboHobby software under KNOPPIX 5.0 (See instructions)
3) Run RoboHobby software under Windows (tested under Windows XP)

To be able to work with local video under Windows (tested under Windows XP):

If you don't have JRE installed on you PC, download it from SUN's web site.
There may be some problems with JRE 1.4_2. JRE 1.4_2 is NOT recommended.
The application works good under JRE 1.5 and 1.6.
(Chose to download - Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6)

To be able to work with local video you should have USB web camera, compatible with MS Windows OS.
There are a lot of web cameras, designed for Windows.
I suppose that our application should work with all of them.

I recommend Genius VideoCAM GE111
This device work pretty good under Linux and under Windows too.

Genius VideoCAM GE111

You should download JMF (Java Media Framework) from SUN's web site.

See URL:

You should choose:
Windows Platform - Java(TM) Media Framework (JMF) 2.1.1e
Windows Performance Pack | jmf-2_1_1e-windows-i586.exe | 4.98 MB

Download and install our software:

There is an alternative way (install without EXE installer)
download and unzip:
copy directory RoboHobby to where you want, for example to C:\RohoHobby

To run:
Go to this directory and run 'robo.bat' Or click on RoboHobby icon.

NOTE: Current version of RoboHobby application does not work with Blue Tooth under Windows. BlueTooth feature work under Linux only, sorry.

See how to install and run the application under KNOPPIX 5.0 (the main OS for this application):
