Installation on the Windows platform

  1. Uninstall any previous versions of Lure.
  2. Run the Lure installer for Windows which will guide you through the installation process.
  3. The installer will prompt you to select the installation folder. The default is the “Program Files” folder.
    1. If you are planning on installing additional plug-ins then it might be worth choosing a different folder which does not have the security constraints that are enforced by Windows.
    2. If you prefer “Program Files” as the installation folder then you will have to run Lure Stage as an Adminstrator user when installing plug-ins or else installation will fail silently.

Post Installation Tasks

  1. Start Lure Stage from the Windows Start menu. You will be prompted to specify a workspace folder. This is the default folder where Lure projects will be created.
  2. Install additional Eclipse based plug-ins.
    1. Consider installing plug-ins to integrate with version control systems. For example Subclipse is an Eclipse based plug-in for Subversion. (Lure Stage is based on Eclipse 3.7.)
    2. On Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8, if you chose to install Lure in the “Program Files” folder then you will need to run LureStage as Adminstrator in order for the installation of plug-ins to succeed.
