OptiTools™ Download Page

[OptiLink™ and OptiSpider™]

This is the download and installation page for the OptiTools suite of programs. In addition to the program or programs you purchased, you will also find demonstration copies of the other programs installed as well.

If you have already installed one or more OptiTools programs, there is no need for you to perform steps 1 and 2 on this page as the programs should already be installed. The Java Runtime and OptiTools installers only have to be run one time. After that, additional OptiTools programs only require the registration in step 3 below.

Install the Newest Java.

OptiTools is written using the latest Java technology, so you must have the latest Java Runtime Environment, JRE Version 1.5 or later, installed before you can install OptiTools. If you are installing for Mac OS-X, you already have Apple’s JRE installed, and should skip this step. For Windows and Linux, you will need to take the link below directly to Sun Microsystems where you can download and install Java.
