I decided not to make a PC executable, but made directions for running the mac version on a PC. I don’t remember how to use windows enough to be sure that this will work all the time, so if anyone who tries this gets problems, I’d appreciate feedback. Thnx!
Open the archive and move it to your Desktop.
After you open the command prompt, you should be at the user Directory (if you are not in the user directory, you will need to navigate to it, here’s a tutorial). Enter the following commands (unfortunately you cannot copy and paste):
java -jar processing-py.jar PmMkr.py
This should launch the program!
It should look like this:
And a final note: On the first screen of the program there is a button that says “Open Read Me” which doesn’t work. I don’t know how to make this work for PC, so I didn’t bother, but you can find the Read Me text file in the directory with the program. Likewise, when you get to the final instructions, there is a button to open the PDF with your new poem. This also doesn’t work. You can find the pdf in the “files” directory in the PM-MKR folder. You can also find text versions of the poems in the “poems” directory inside the “files directory.” Sorry for the inconvenience!
