Running Jot on Windows
After publishing the Jot Exporter for Blender, I’ve noticed a lot of people are having trouble getting Jot to run on their computers. I’ve put together this short tutorial to help explain how. The screenshots are from Windows 8 Pro 64-bit, but the process should be the same for WinXP, Vista and Win7, both 32 and 64-bit, and Home, Pro or Enterprise editions.
Begin by downloading Jot from her http://jot.cs.princeton.edu and double click jot-1.0.0.zip. Drag the jot folder within to the root of your C: drive.
Go into C:\jot\batch, and right click jot-config.bat, and choose Edit.
Replace the line where it says:
Save the file and close it.
Next go back to the C:\jot folder and right click jot-cmd and choose Properties.
%SystemRoot%\system32\cmd.exe /k C:\rkalnins\jot-distrib-test\jot\batch\jot-config.bat
%SystemRoot%\system32\cmd.exe /k C:\jot\batch\jot-config.bat
Click OK on the properties window and run jot-cmd by double clicking it. You should get a command prompt that looks like this:
In the command prompt enter the following.
If everything is working as it should, Jot should start up with the model of a cactus loaded.
Look in the manual folder for instructions on how to use jot, plus a couple of tutorials.
