To open a
.jar file on a Windows system, you can do one of the following:

.jarfile is associated with the Java runtime.
java -jarcommand to run the
.jarfile. Open a command prompt and navigate to the directory containing the
.jarfile. Then, enter the following command:
java -jar filename.jar
filename.jar with the name of your
.jar file. This will run the
