Operating System Support

DamageProfiler has been implemented as a platform-independent tool and can thus be installed and run on Linux, Windows and MacOS. A Java 8+ platform has to be installed on the workstation used for running the tool.


It has been successfully tested on different flavors of Linux based operating systems, including ArchLinux and Ubuntu 17.04.


The application can be run on Windows 10.
