Yes, i have install JAVA RUNTIME ENGINE, and with this programm i can use the "titled" of the site (the "start now")But i whish used my downloaded version but i think that to hard for my bad english. Here I have to try anything of tutoriaux but nothing goes, that bug! Can you explain me how to install "titled" of zero for somebody who never really used "java" . Thank you all for your help and anything.
(If a french user know the solution, can he help me ?)

have you tried
1) downloading the program
2) unpacking it
3) then double-clicking the .jar file?
that's all there is to it, really...

if that doesn't work, try make a batch file with "java -jar tiled.jar" in the tiled directory (this is just a workaround in case the jar file type isn't linked to your java runtime). if it *still* doesnt work then, maybe you're using the microsoft java vm (the one that comes with winblows); try getting the one from sun instead.

wtf are you talking about apache etc? no need for that at all. besides, you want the java RTE, as in "runtime environment", not the SDK (= software development kit"). (unless you want to code something in java, that is, of course.)

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html - look/ctrl-f for "J2SE v 1.4.2_08 JRE". right below the sdk package (pretty stupid of sun to present it in that noob-confusing order, btw, if you ask me).

It should work out of the box when you have installed JRE 5.0. The INSTALL file refers to both "building tiled" and "running tiled", and when you've downloaded the binary (bin) archive then you can skip the building part.

We'll make sure to update the INSTALL file to mention this to avoid future confusion, and also to have it mention double clicking the jar file should work on Windows instead of only mentioning the command line way.

And don't forget that double clicking ONLY works with java 1.5+
As I made the mistake to thinkk 1.4.x was sufficient and it took
some time to find that mistake :)
