Download setup files

To use the SIL System you need to install software on your computer known as the JADE Thin Client. A broadband connection is recommended but a dial-up connection will still work. You will also need to contact the SIL System Administrator to obtain a valid username and password.

Minimum System Requirements:

Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later.

Current JADE setup kit

Download the installer kit that matches your version of Windows. For an older pc still running Windows XP you will be wanting the 32-bit installer, whereas if you have a newer pc running Windows Vista or Windows 7 you need to check if you have a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows. You can find this information by opening the "System" icon in Control Panel under the "System and Security" section. It will display the system type as either 32-bit or 64-bit. Use the installer (32-bit)  / installer (64-bit) to install the JADE presentation client and follow these instructions. The Instruction zip file contains files that are needed to complete the SIL installation. Please contact the SIL System Administrator for help regarding the installation process and to register for a valid username and password.

Crystal Report Viewer setup kit (32-bit only)

In addition, to use the report preview function in the Edit columns screen of the Report Writer, you need to install the Crystal Report viewer application. Download this zip file (29MB), unzip it and then run the CRViewer.exe application to install the report viewer. Please note that if you already have a version of Crystal Reports on your computer this may affect your existing programs.
