Instructions for Windows

IMPORTANT: If you update TV-Browser from a version before 4.2 you should deinstall TV-Browser first without deleting the settings.

TV-Browser is provided in different packages for Windows. Those packages target different user groups, for normal users it's suggested to use the Carefree package, this includes everything you need so TV-Browser will run directly after installing it. For power users (or those that already have installed Java 11 JRE/JDK on the system) a Lite package is provided, that doesn't include Java.

Java for TV-Browser when using the Lite package or the transportable version

Because the Lite package and the transportable version aren't including Java you will have to install a JRE on your system for TV-Browser to run. You can use the TV-Browser JRE, which only includes components that TV-Browser needs to run or alternatively the complete JRE Eclipse Temurin by Adoptium. If you choose to use Eclipse Temurin by Adoptium make sure to select the writing of the Registy entries for the JRE, without those entries in the Windows Registry TV-Browser will not find the installed Java. For the current version of TV-Browser it's suggested to use a Java 11 JRE, which also is the minimum version for TV-Browser to run.
