Select either Windows, Mac, Linux or Java. Here you find notes of operation, that you should read before installing. Read information carefully and answer appropriate - always "positive" to continue installation.
Extract all files otherwise, the TacticalSailing(TS) program will not start later because some files are missing! You have to completely unzip the package: "Win_TS_en_setup.zip" with the commands: EXTRACT and then "Extract all"! A new folder will be suggested to you automatically, in which the TS-LOGO can be seen in the new folder later on. Click in this folder onto "Win_TS_en_setup.exe" and the setup will start correctly.
Click "More Info" and "Run anyway". If you see such a notice titled "Tactical_Sailing_en, or the abbreviation "...TS..." you are running secure software. This notice pops up as standard procedure, so that you don’t load any foreign software that you don’t want to have on your computer. Confirmation: You can trust Tactical Sailing Software, the program named: Tactical_Sailing_en (TS_en).
The installation of Tactical Sailing is running on Windows 10 perfectly in a few minutes only.
It is reported that some apps are no longer running. We have tried Big Sur with Tactical Sailing(TS)
>>> TS does not start with Big Sur, an error message is displayed! Click "Ignore/Cancel".
Recommendation: So if there is no compelling reason to change from Catalina to Big Sur, we recommend
>>> NOT to do the update for the time being.
We are working with software specialists to find the cause and ask for patience.
Write an e-mail to support[at]TacticalSailing.com, keyword: "Big Sur", if you are affected with.
We will inform you directly about the status of the development.
Friedrich E. (AUT): "I hope I can also offer a solution to others with this problem, but it is certainly not THE SOLUTION for everyone. I am not an expert myself, but I have always been concerned with the matter. I have a:
Since I have several programmes that only run on Windows, I have also installed Windows on the Mac. Previously via Parallels but now via Apple's own
This works very well, even setting up a second operating system afterwards is no problem here. Disadvantage: when switching on, you must already decide on a system - here by pressing the ALT key as soon as the sound is heard. Switching off is unusual for Mac users, but Windows runs without problems, which was not always the case under Parallels. In addition, this variant is free of charge. You only need a Windows licence key (you can get one online, or you have one).
Many thanks to Friedrich E. (AUT) for his description of his solution!
Here is also a link to an explanation of how to install Windows with Boot Camp Assistant. https://youtu.be/Hmm9Q-T0oTo
Alfred P.(AUT): "If the following problem occurs after updating to MacOS BigSur (see picture), the workaround by means of installation on the Windows virtual machine on the Mac is no great effort - provided that e.g. Parallels(1) is installed on the Mac. Below are the "step by step" instructions for this, assuming that Parallels is started on the Mac and assuming that the TS licence key version 2 is known and available."
* Many thanks for these instructions to Alfred P. (AUT)! (1) Parallels: see notes at the end of this guide. (German to be translated)
During the installation with "TS_install_.dmg" a window opens: Drag the "TS-Logo.app" to the right into the "Applications" folder.
Apple wants to scan for malware and he can't do that because we use different security tools than Apple's.
The software of Tactical Sailing(TS) is free of malware. You have to "Allow Launch anyway".
A) Operation in the "System settings" window
B) Operation by "mouse-Clicks"
You can always click and start the TS.app immediately afterwards, the process A) or B) is only necessary for the 1st start.
In most cases, the required options are set correctly. Nevertheless, check the options before installation:
Check "Allow apps downloaded from": App Store AND identified Developer
Open an option for the Tactical Sailing installation once in "System Preferences / Security / General". Allow apps downloaded from - "App Store AND Identified Developer". This option does not damage your computer. The Tactical Sailing program is a certified program, a "3rd Party Mac Developer Application" and tested. Do not hesitate to get in contact if you have any question, please send an e-mail to: support[at]TacticalSailing.com
1. To install you will need a version of Java on your system. We recommend Java 6 update 45 for Linux. You have to download a Java version according to your hardware yourself. Several alternatives are available (32/64 bit) e.g. at ORACLE.
2. The installation of the Tactical Sailing software is a Java program: "Linux_TS_en_installer.jar". The program components are made available and installed.
3. At the end you can create a link corresponding ICON.
Comment from Wouter H.: "I did download Tactical Sailing and installed it. My system is
Ubuntu 12.04, 64-bits; java version "1.7.0_25"; Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_25-b15)"
Comment from Hans S.: "I have it under Linux OpenSuse 13.2 installed, the Installation worked great. The installation should deliver the various icons for the starters".
Comment from Markus O. Installation on running Linux Mint 18.3 KDE worked fine.
Java Runtime 1.6.45, OpenSuse 12.3_Java7u25, IzPack Installer
OpenSuse 13.2, Linux Mint 18.3 KDE, TS Linux Mint 18.3 KDE Java
I tried the Linux installation on a system which has never Java or specially Tactical Sailing never run. What have I done (without CD, only Web, not even the Java version) follows here: Read my instructions (.pdf) and Linux screenshots.zip. Keep your license key for the full version at hand or try a demo version for free.
After numerous Java version changes with ORACLE we have determined, that Tactical Sailing runs best with Java 6 Version 1.6.43. Install the Tactical Sailing Software from our web site. No matter if you use the CD- or Download- or Demo-version, for all Windows Computer we deliver all software, Java included, from the installation package which we provided.
Linux download here. Java SE 6 Update 45. This release brings in security features and bug fixes. Oracle strongly recommends that all Java SE 6 users upgrade to this release.
Tactical Sailing uses automatically Java 6 version 1.6.43 or higher to be installed. If you need Java 7, you can have installed the latest Java 7 version and operate in parallel.
Note: ORACLE´s Java 8 tries to delete older Java versions. Do NOT allow to delete older versions! Hundreds of programs need Java 6 versions, so does Tactical Sailing.
If you need help, write an e-mail and tell us, if you use Windows or Mac to support[at]TacticalSailing.com
Windows 7, Joerg F.: "Java 1.6.43 obviously works", on March 11 / 2013.
Windows 8, Michael L.: Question: "I need Java 7, how does it work?"
Yes: Java versions 6, 7 and 8 can run on Windows in parallel.
Mac OS X 10.7, Piotr P.: "It works! Thank you. What an excellent job and creative game."
Examples: Windows Java 1.6.43 / 1.7.17 and Mac Java 1.6.43 / 1.7.17
