Installing Change Assistant: 

1) Click here to install the Java SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 24 for 32-bit Windows (i.e., JRE 1.6.0_24). Be sure to install the 32 bit version (i.e. from the list choose Windows Offline Installation, jre-6u24-windows-i586.exe). EnterpriseOne and Change Assistant are 32 bit applications which require the 32 bit version of the JRE. 


If you have not installed the JRE, Change Assistant cannot be launched and executed. 
2) Click here to install and launch the latest version of Change Assistant.

 If you are already using Change Assistant, we would love to hear your comments about how it's working for you!
