Platform


MeD's Movie Manager requires Sun's Java Runtime Environment (Java RE) 1.5 or latter. If you are unsure if you already have the Java RE installed go here to test it. If it fails, chances are you don't have it installed (correctly). You can either go download the Java RE at java.com or you can download the MeD's Movie Manager 'Exe' installer with Java RE 1.5 included (Windows only).


Any system that is supported by Java Standard Edition should be able to run MeD's Movie Manager. That basically means most desktop systems around.

MeD's Movie Manager is tested on the following operating systems:
- Linux (Tested on Ubuntu and Red Hat)
- Mac OS X (Tested on OS X 10.3.9 / 10.4.x / Server 10.4.4)
- Windows 2000 / XP / Vista / Win 7. May also run on earlier versions.


Three different databases are supported:
- MS Access (Windows only)
- HSQLDB (Cross-platform)
- MySQL (Cross-platform and requires installation)

MS Access and HSQLDB do not require any additional installations in contrast to MySQL which must be installed. MySQL offers the possibility to connect through a network e.g. the Internet. MySQL must be running on the host machine to be able to connect to the database.
HSQLDB is written in Java and is somewhat faster than MS Access. Both work right out of the box and is the recommended choice for any beginners.
