h1. Installation Instruction

3 2 Andreas Hauffe
eLamX² is available in two ways for Windows 64bit and Linux 64bit. On the one hand as an installer and on the other hand as a ZIP file.
4 1 Andreas Hauffe
5 2 Andreas Hauffe
The installer installs eLamX² on the system including all necessary dependencies. The ZIP files contain a directly executable version of eLamX², so that no installation or administrator permissions are necessary. The ZIP files simply have to be unzipped into a folder of your choice and then the executable file in the "bin" folder started.

To install, download the appropriate installer for your operating system (Windows 64bit, Linux 64bit) from the eLamX² website

# After downloading ZIP file for your OS, it must be unzipped into any folder.

# In the eLamX² directory that is now available, the executable file in the "bin" subdirectory must be executed with a double click. The following assignment applies:

> Windows with Java 32bit: elamx2.exe
33
> Windows with Java 64bit: elamx264.exe

h1. Language Settings of eLamX²
37 2 Andreas Hauffe
38
Basically, the program adapts to the language settings of the operating system. The default language is English. The program only starts with a German GUI if the operating system language is German.

40
So far, this behavior can only be changed using options when starting the program. There are two ways to do this.

h2. Temporary Solution
43
44
When calling the program in the command line or input prompt, "-locale en" must be added.

46
Example Windows
47
48 3 Andreas Hauffe
	"C:\\$INSTALLATION DIRECTORY$\\bin\\elamx2.exe" –locale en
49 2 Andreas Hauffe
50
Example Linux
51
52 3 Andreas Hauffe
	$INSTALLATION DIRECTORY$/eLamX2 –locale en
53 2 Andreas Hauffe
54
h2. Permanent Solution
55
56 4 Andreas Hauffe
"–Locale en" has to be added in the configuration file of eLamX². This can be found in the following locations:
57 2 Andreas Hauffe
58
Windows
59
60 3 Andreas Hauffe
	C:\\$INSTALLATION DIRECTORY$\\etc\\elamx2.conf
61 2 Andreas Hauffe
62
Linux
63
64 3 Andreas Hauffe
	$INSTALLATION DIRECTORY$/etc/elamx2.conf
65 2 Andreas Hauffe
66
In the elamx2.conf, the entry default_options is supplemented by "–locale en" so that it looks like this:
67
68 3 Andreas Hauffe
	default_options = "- locale en ..."

As a further alternative, the temporary solution can also be implemented as a link in Windows.
