How to install your free trial step by step

Step 1 – Download your Edgewonk free trial

First, download your Edgewonk free trial. By default, most computers store downloaded files in the “Download” folder.

Choose your version:  Windows 64bit Mac, Linux, Windows 32bit – Universal installer



Step 2 – Install Edgewonk

The installation is very straightforward:

  • If you have downloaded the Windows installer, just execute the downloaded exe file and follow the instructions. Please take a look at the video above if you have any questions or use the contact form below.


  • If you have downloaded the Mac and Linux universal installer, create a new folder for the Edgewonk-Demo.jar file that you previously downloaded and then double-click on it.

Please simply install the JDK software from the link above and everything runs without problems.

If the Java installation didn’t help, then here are the most 3 common problems and how to fix them:


1. The loading screen doesn’t go away

This has usually to do with an outdated Java version. Uninstall Java completely, then scroll back up to our Java links and reinstall it. Restart your computer and then double-click on the Edgewonk-Demo file.


2. Your computer can’t open Edgewonk

Some computers have a problem recognizing Java files. In that case, right-click on the Edgewonk-Demo, go to “Open With” and choose Java as your default app. 

If that doesn’t help, please contact us at and we will provide you with another fix. 


3. There are no trades in your trial journal

If you don’t see any trades, just take a look at the filter at the top and set them to “All” and/or use the Clear Filter button. The trade data in the trial should then appear.


Step 3 – Explore the Edgewonk trial

You are good to go. The Edgewonk trial comes with 150 pre-entered trades and you can explore all features and functions.
