Installing Java

Please assure, that Java is installed on your operating system.

Installing Java on Windows and MacOS

Downloading OpenEstate-ImmoTool

You can find the downloads of OpenEstate-ImmoTool in the public download area.

  • On Windows systems you should download the ZIP file OpenEstate-ImmoTool-XXXX.zip.
  • On MacOS and Linux you should download the TAR.GZ file OpenEstate-ImmoTool-XXXX.tar.gz.

There is no need to download the additionally provided modules / addons. The ZIP / TAR.GZ archive already contains all currently available modules.

Installing OpenEstate-ImmoTool

Extract the downloaded ZIP / TAR.GZ archive. Afterwards you will find a folder called OpenEstate-ImmoTool-XXXX, which contains all application files. Feel free to move this folder anywhere you want on your hard disk - e.g. on Windows at C:\Program Files or into your users home directory.

In the previously extracted application folder you should find a folder called bin. This folder contains the startup files for the different operating systems.

  • On Windows you can start the program with a double click on ImmoTool.exe or ImmoTool.bat in the bin folder.
  • On MacOS you can start the program with a double click on the ImmoTool symbol in the application directory or with the script ImmoTool.sh in the bin folder.
  • On Linux you can start the program with the ImmoTool.sh in the bin folder.

When starting the program for the first time, you need to follow these steps:

  • You possibly need to select your preferred language.
  • The project wizard shows up. Enter the details about your company and create a new / empty project. When starting the program for the next time, the created project is opened automatically.
