Download Client System Requirements

  • A Virtual Machine dedicated for the Download Client installation
  • Java 7 or higher of either the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or Java Development Kit (JDK)
  • The latest Download Client version, available here (as a transfer-client.jar file): display/PD/User+Guides

The most recent Download Client version and one version back are officially supported for each major CCCApply release.

If you experience issues downloading your application data after a major release, use the following steps to determine your Download Client version:

  1. Type the following command at the ../transfer-client/ command prompt:

    1. java -jar transfer-client.jar --version
      • If you have Download Client V5.4.0 installed, this will display: VERSION: 2016-03-08 12:35:19, 1.0-


      • If you have Download Client V5.3.0 installed, this will display: VERSION: 2015-10-16 16:00:27, 1.0-


  2.  If you have a Download Client version that is prior to V5.3.0, an error displays. You can upgrade to the latest Download Client version available here (transfer-client.jar file):

•     The steps that follow assume the ‘java’ and ‘jar’ commands are available from your PATH environment. The installers for both the JRE and JDK should install the Java runtime so that the various command-line tools, including ‘java’ and ‘jar’ are available in the system PATH.
