I can't open/run HardwareSimulator
Friends, I downloaded JRE(java runtime environment). I took the test “java -version” and appears “java version 1.8.0_121"installed in my computer.
Also downloaded the nand2tetris software zip file, open the zip file, and then move the contents for desktop.
I followed the instructions of the http://www.nand2tetris.org/software.php.
Eu add the location of java.exe to your PATH environment variable following the guidance of a member of the forum ybakos.
When I open the “terminal”(CMD), and type C:\Users\Raul\Desktop\nand2tetris\tools\HardwareSimulator
Nothing happens ... Can anyone help me, please? Thank you!
There's a chance when you open the folder you won't see the file extensions. In this case it will look like you have two files called HardwareSimulator. Double click each one until you find the one that works. The one that works is the '.bat' one since you are using Windows.
Alternatively, if you want to use the command line try entering C:\Users\Raul\Desktop\nand2tetris\tools\HardwareSimulator.bat
Adding the file extension should help your computer know which of the two files to call.
Actually, click on the HardwareSimulator.bat file. I paused and resumed my course. I was able to run the program after I reinstalled the windows operating system and double-clicking the HardwareSimulator.bat file.
Now I want to follow the course without interruption.
Thank you very much for your patience and an explanation!
