You'll have both Java and JRE installed. Then double clicking JCZ should open as a regular program.

Once both installled you open the .jar file by double clicking on the JCloisterZone.jar or similar.

Yeah, and it still doesn't work...  :-[ It's frustrating, because I took my brother's comp and installed everything properly under 5 minutes. There is small difference between devices, my unpacked Jcloister has tag: Jar file, and he has Executable Jar File... Both Windows 10... Does it mean anything?

What happens when you double click on the .jar file?

Some sort of ghosting, quickly disappearing black window.

Sounds like you're on the right track but the program fails to stay open.

1.  If not done so, restart computer just in case.
2.  Then go back and right click on the .jar file and choose Open with... and select Java Runetime Environment (JRE).
2.1 If JRE does not show, choose the browse to look up the file, which normally lies here: C:\Program Files\Java\j2re (version number) \bin\javaw.exe
3. Choose this a default in the tick box before accepting.

If you have some time tomorrow I'll set up a conference and  you can share your desktop. We can troubleshoot it together if you like!

Crisis averted! I used system restore point, and it helped! I installed everything once more, and everything runs like it should! Uffff.... It looks like going back in time can help a great deal!

Guys, THANK YOU! I was frustrated, and you kept up with me. I guess, I can get back to playing Carcassonne!

LOL. Nice. System restore is the ultimate last resort if everything fails. Maybe should've started with that nontheless.  O:-)
