Note: these packages are usually already installed on Windows 7. Manual one-off installation may be needed when using the ZIP distribution or the MSI installer, especially on Windows Vista and XP.
- Windows XP SP3 is the minimum requirement. Windows 7 is recommended for best performance. Tobi natively supports 32 and 64 bits runtimes.
- Minimal hardware specification: 1.8GHz single core / 1.5 GHz dual core processor, 2 GB RAM, 1024x768 display, dedicated graphics card.
- Java runtime - v7 is needed for EPUB-Check and ZedVal validators (v8 not compatible with ZedVal), v7 for the DAISY Pipeline2 v1.7, v8 for the latest DAISY Pipeline2 version):
Note that Java must be configured in Windows' PATH environment variable, which is automatically set when installing the Oracle JDK (conversely, the JRE requires manually setting the PATH, and a reboot). Please open the Windows "command prompt" and type "java -version" (+ hit the return/enter key) to see if Java is configured correctly on your machine.
- DAISY Pipeline 2:
Tobi uses the Pipeline 2 to convert DAISY content (DTBOOK, DAISY 3, DAISY 2.02) to EPUB 3. Please download and execute the Pipeline 2 installer, and Tobi should subsequently be able to discover the path leading to the Pipeline runtime (command line executable):
- .NET Framework 4.5
(upgrade for Windows Vista SP2 and Windows 7, already installed on Windows 8, not available for Windows XP):
