    Default Installing - instructions don't match download

    I just downloaded Kettle (pdi-ce-5.0.1.A-stable.zip) and the download page (http://sourceforge.net/projects/pent...oad?source=dlp) said "Click Open or Run to begin", "Follow our Easy Installation Wizard", "Enjoy your new software". However, the download is a zip file and I cannot find any installer or wizard. There are a bunch of batch files such as "Carte.bat", "Kitchen.bat", etc., and they all look like examples and demos but they don't do anything.

    Any tips? I did search, and all I found was "Run kettle.exe", but there is no kettle.exe in the zip and that was a very old post.

    Hello Phil,

    No installation required for PDI. Just unzip into a folder. Make sure you have JAVA installed and you run the application by using spoon.bat.
    Simple as that...

    Thanks for answering! I had tried spoon.bat, but it just says "The system cannot find the path specified" a couple of times, and then spews out loads of "Missing operand." error messages and then terminates.

    I have Java installed:
    java version "1.7.0_45"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_45-b18)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.45-b08, mixed mode)

    Put your JAVA_HOME environment variable into your computer settings
    There's should also be an article in the Pentaho Wiki - sorry but can't find the link now
