Scelight is FREE to download and use with minor limitations, but if you enjoy using it or you find it useful, please consider registering: Registration Thank You!
On Windows Operating Systems if you can't or don't want to install Java, you can download this optional prepared JRE (Java Runtime Environment).
It contains a folder named jre. Extract it into the Scelight folder and you will be able to run Scelight without having to install Java on your system.
The recommended way is still to install Java! Think of this as a last resort.
You only need this if you want to develop External Modules for Scelight.
You can read more about the External Modules, the SDK and developing External Modules here: External Modules
Good news! Scelight is now (as of February 4, 2016) open source:
Just download the zip file and extract it to anywhere you like. You're done.
It is STRONGLY advised not to put Scelight in special folders like "C:\Program Files" where normal users do not have write permission therefore Scelight would not be able to perform updates or save settings.
On MAC OS-X you can start Scelight by double clicking on the file
Note that on Linux and MAC OS-X you (might) have to set executable permission on the starter script. Open a console/terminal, navigate to the Scelight folder where you have extracted it, and execute the following command:
OS-X: "chmod +x Scelight-os-x.command"
Linux: "chmod +x Scelight-linux.sh"
This only has to be done once. After that you can start Scelight with the following command:
Windows: double click on the "Scelight.exe"
