Clicking the 'Start ACT' button does not start ACT...
ACT is started using a system called Java Web Start, which needs to be
installed on your computer before ACT will run. See this
page for more about Java Web Start.
Once Web Start is installed, it should associate itself with files ending
with .jnlp. This means that when your browser downloads a .jnlp file, Web
Start is loaded and the jnlp file opened. In the case of WebACT, the jnlp
file tells Web Start how to open ACT with the selected data. When you click
the 'Start ACT' button, Your browser
will probably open a dialog box offering you the choice of opening the .jnlp
file using a program called 'jwstart', or downloading the jnlp file. Select
the option to open the file, and ACT should be downloaded to your computer
and the selected data loaded. If the option to open the jnlp file with
'jwsstart' is not present, this probably means Web Start is not correctly installed
Can you answer questions about using ACT itself?
No. ACT is written and supported by the Sanger Institute. Further information and documentation is available from the Sanger Institute's Artermis Pages.Questions
regarding usage of ACT should be addressed to the Artemis Mailing List.
