  • There is a small problem with installing WebTide/WebDrogue at BIO sites (and probably other DFO sites). The latest version of the MacAfee virus scanner does not cooperate with the installer. The version of WebTide/WebDrogue that includes the Java VM (Virtual Machine) will timeout with a message like "$JAVA_ENV not found" because the virus scanner takes too long to scan the file. If you already have the appropriate java installed, give the "without Java VM" version a try. Otherwise, you will have to contact Informatics (the HelpDesk) and get them to turn of the scanner for the minute or two it takes to install WebTide/WebDrogue.
