Third Party Software
Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
The KX Platform runs on the following supported JRE:
- 1.1 ( since kdb+ 4.0 2020.03.17 )
Visual C++ Redistributable
To Unzip the Windows bundle you must use the 7-Zip Software.
7-Zip can be downloaded from the 7-zip.org website
KDB licenses (
k4.lic) are tied to the hostname of a machine and specifically the hostname in FQDN (.) format. When run on a machine which is incorrectly configured you will get a
host error when running the q binary.
For more information on kdb+ license errors see code.kx.com
In order for kdb+ to run, the hostname in the license file must match the hostname of the box.
