Part 1: Install Virtualization Software

Install VirtualBox or another virtualization program (e.g., from VMWare for Mac or Windows or Parallels for Mac) on your computer (this program is called a hypervisor). Then, run it, take a color screenshot, and insert it to replace the placeholder image below. An example grayscale screenshot is provided for VirtualBox. Your screenshot, however, should be in full color.

Part 2: Download, unzip, and start the VM

Download the virtual machine from CyBox using one of the following links. Then, unzip and open the VM in the virtualization program installed in Part 1. Then, start it, wait for it to fully boot up, and start the desktop session (all of this happens automatically). Insert your screenshot to replace the placeholder image below. An example grayscale screenshot is included, but your screenshot should be in full color.

On older versions of MacOS (e.g., High Sierra), it may be easier to download and unpack the TGZ file (secondary download) instead of a ZIP file (primary download). The reason for this is that older versions of Apple"s Archive Utility don't work very well with large ZIP archives. You can still use the ZIP file if you unpack it with a different program, e.g., The Unarchiver or Keka. On all other systems, the ZIP files should unpack without any issues. These concerns don't apply to the OVA file.

Hypervisor Primary download Size Alternative downloadSize VM size (after unpacking)
Parallels hci560x.pvm.zip 2.6 GB hci560x.pvm.tgz 2.6 GB 8.6 GB
VirtualBox hci560x_vbox.zip 2.5 GB hci560x_vbox.tgz 2.7 GB 8.4 GB
VMWare hci560x.vmwarevm.zip 2.5 GB hci560x.vmwarevm.tgz 2.7 GB 7.8 GB
Other hci560x.ova 2.6 GB 8+ GB

Part 3: Start the course app in the VM

Double-click the "Run App" shortcut in the VM. Wait until the app starts. Then, take a screenshot (subsequently, you may close the app). Insert your screenshot to replace the placeholder image below. An example grayscale screenshot is included, but your screenshot should be in full color.

Part 4: Run Weka

Run Weka (Waikato Environment for Knowledge Analysis). It is installed in the VM, so it is sufficient to double-click on the shortcut in the VM and wait until it launches (it is in Java, so this may take a few seconds). Alternatively, you can download, install, and run Weka on your computer and bypass the VM. Then, take a screenshot of Weka and insert it to replace the placeholder image below. Your screenshot should be in full color.
