Uploading MRLComm to the Arduino

How To Start New MRL


1. Make a directory like c:\mrl  (warning no spaces in the name)
2. download the latest myrobotlab.jar from latest build and put it in the new directory so it looks like this


3. Start a command shell, type  

cd c:\mrl 

then type

java -jar myrobotlab.jar

It takes a while the first time on a computer - its extracting pieces of itself. But eventually a gui should come up. It should look like this.  You want to flip over to the "runtime" tab and press the menu System->Install All

After the services install, you should not need to download the services again.  Even if you make a new MRL directory somewhere else to try a different version - the services won't need to be downloaded, but will be copied from the local repo .. this makes it very fast.
