Running eXpresser requires Java Version 6 which can be downloaded from here (you need to have OS X 10.5.6 or later and to have updated to Java 1.6).

To use the full system in your classroom, it will need to be configured for your system setup. For the full MiGen system and installation support please register. You will then be provided a link with the system and further installation instructions.
