Install Genero Browser Client

This topic relates to the installation of the Genero Browser Client (GBC).

The installation and licensing of Genero products requires you to read and accept the End User License Agreement, which can be found on the Four Js website at

The GBC package does not install like other Genero products. You do not launch an installation script and click through a wizard to install the GBC. Instead, you download one of the following packages:
  • The GBC runtime package is a fully-compiled package of the GBC. You can deploy this package on your production system as-is. It provides a default GBC, giving you the default look-and-feel and theme options. You cannot modify the runtime package.
  • You must download the GBC project package if you plan to do any customization. It provides the project files in the directory structure that you need to start your customization efforts.

System requirements

For details about system requirements, refer to the Supported platforms and databases document (available on the Download page of the Four Js Web site) or contact your support center.
