# jBASE Release 5.5, 5.6, 5.7.0 through 5.7.6 (except 5.6.6)

Read Time: 1 minute(s)

The compiler installer for jBASE release 5.5, 5.6 and 5.7.0 which is invoked by the jBASE installer is not functional at this time, and should not be used to install the compiler for these releases. Instead, an updated compiler installer jbase_compiler_update_64bit.exe (opens new window) should be used.

Note: if you are installing jBASE on Windows 8 (not 8.1) or Windows Server 2012 (not R2), please follow this link to install a compatible version of Visual Studio BEFORE installing jBASE. Then follow the steps below. The steps are:

  1. Download the jBASE Compiler Update from link shown above.
  2. Install jBASE using the installer for your jBASE release.
  3. On the "Setup Completed" page UN-CHECK the "Install and configure the compiler" check box. This will bypass the broken compiler installation.
  4. After jBASE has been installed, run the jBASE Compiler Update downloaded in step 1.
  5. Follow the compiler installation instructions, beginning at step 2.
