NOTE: for ALL users (Windows, Mac, Linux) you now execute (double-click)  "Javascore-install-x.xx.xx.jar".  And THEN to run javascore after installing it... double click on "JavaScore.jar" file in the installation directory or (WINDOWS only) click on the shortcut on your desktop (if you asked for it during the install).
