Sikuli 1.1.3: Offline Installation JAR?

Asked by Ron Turrentine on 2018-10-04


Is there an offline installer available for 1.1.3 that does not attempt to connect to the web to download files?
Our corporate firewall blocks your site, so the web installer does not work. If an offline setup JAR was available, where everything was included locally, it would be optimal for installation!

Thanks RaiMan, that solved my question.

Hey Raiman,

I tried the offline setup JAR that was in the link above, but it was not successful. I'm sure that I'm likely doing something wrong. To be frank, the instructions on how to do it were quite unclear for me.

Is there not one, single installation file that includes all of the files needed to install Sikuli? Or are there multiple files needed? Step-by-step instructions (like 1. Do this, then 2. Click this, then 3. Do this thing) would be fantastic.

Tomorrow I will have a classroom of 10 people that I have been tasked with helping to download, setup & install Sikuli. I will also be giving them some *very* basic training. Since I cannot get the offline installer to work, and since the download site is blocked here, we will have to do this through a mobile hotspot, which is painfully slow. I know it's better than nothing, though.

I am attempting to get the SIkuli download URL "unblocked" here at my place of employment (which will take congressional approval after something not unlike the Kavanaugh hearings) so any help is GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

what do you need for what system?

RaiMan (raimund-hocke) said : #5

... and why don't you use 1.1.4?

Ron Turrentine (oldtimerocker) said : #6

Hey Raiman,

I tried 1.1.4 a couple of months ago, but there were a couple of bugs that made me switch back to 1.1.3 until it was stabilized. Since then, I have developed a class framework for our users to utilize in scripting. Also, the removal of the clickable function menu from the left -pane of the IDE was something that we definitely need (especially for our users - the visual menu is greatly helpful).

This will be installed on Windows 7 and 10 systems.

I just worked again along the information in the docs mentioned in comment #1 and I think it is rather easy to follow.

- download the setup jar from launchpad
- put it in a folder
- download additional stuff using the provided links: IDE, API, a libs jar and Jython
- put all in the same folder as setup jar
- run setup and answer the questions coming up with yes

simply works.

in case it helps:

here you can download a ready to use 1.1.3 IDE jar for Windows (created with setup):

Thanks Raiman!

I'll see about downloading it tonight (Dropbox is also blocked here at work). :(

I sincerely appreciate your support!



I downloaded the JAR through my mobile hotspot here at work and tested it with a user who hasn't installed Sikuli yet. It worked perfectly!

You are THE MAN! Thank you!
