Installation and Downloads

Before downloading the files required, please review the Installation Guide. You should make sure that you can meet the prerequisites before starting the install.

There are two downloads for LexWiki Publisher depending on your LexEVS install. If you already have a successful LexEVS 6.0 installation, then you will already have access to the library file named "lbRuntime.jar" and do not need to download it. These downloads do not include that file and therefore are faster downloads:

The download for the previous release is also available:

LexWikiPublisher 1.0 zip (33 MB)
