Install Genesys Co-browse Server

Configure the JAVA_HOME environment variable

Before installing Genesys Co-browse Server, you must first make sure your JAVA_HOME environment variable is configured correctly. The value for this variable must not have a slash ("\", "/") at the end. For example, C:\java (Windows) or C:/java (Unix).

For Unix operating systems, the JAVA_HOME environment variable must be defined at the system level to allow Co-browse Server to be started from Genesys Administrator and Solution Control Interface.

For Windows operating systems there is a known bug in Java (http://www.duckware.com/tech/java6msvcr71.html) that you can avoid by completing the following steps:

  1. Add %JAVA_HOME%\bin to the beginning of the PATH environment variable.
  2. Make sure java.exe is launched from the %JAVA_HOME%\bin folder.
