Enabling Java for Web-HIPRE and Smart-Swaps


Many browsers have discontinued their Java support, which is required to run HIPRE and Smart-Swaps. The majority of Windows computers come with Internet Explorer pre-installed, which is why we have chosen to include a step by step tutorial for that browser on that operating system. Other browsers and setups may work, but they are not supported by us.
