 h3. Installation Steps
 # Make sure QuickBuild server is up and running, login to QuickBuild using your own account (the account who wants to run user agent on his/her desktop), and navigate to _My_ tab, click the the link _download user agent_ to download user agent of desired platform. Please note that *this link will not be available* if the account do not have [permission to run user agent|Other Permissions#allow user agent]. Extract downloaded file into the directory where the user agent should be installed.
 # Make sure you have JDK5 or JDK6 installed. For Sun JDK5, QuickBuild requires at least update 11. Download the appropriate JDK version from [] if needed.
 # Make sure the _java_ command exists in the system path; if not, you will need to modify the file _conf/wrapper.conf_ under the build agent's installation directory, and point the entry to path of the java command.
 # Open a command prompt window, switch to folder _bin_ under the agent installation directory, and run command _agent.(bat|sh) console_ to start the agent. Please note:
 #* Make sure the user running the command has *full access rights* to the agent's installation directory.
 #* This command runs the user agent in console mode. Follow [this guide|Install As System Service] on how to install the agent as system service so that it auto-starts when machine reboots.
 #* By default, the user agent will run on port 8821. If this port is used by other process, you can change the port number to an unused port by running command _config.(bat|sh)_.
  #* QuickBuild server will auto-detect IP address of the agent upon agent connection, and this is appropriate for most cases. In rare cases where auto-detected IP address does not work, you may configure the agent IP address to use by running _config.(sh|bat)_.
 #* You may optionally run _config.(sh|bat)_ to configure performance factor of the machine running the agent. The performance factor will be used by QuickBuild server to determine performance of the machine when distribute build loads.
 # If user agent starts and connects to server correctly, you will see _My Agent_ tab is displaying information of the user agent by logging to QuickBuild using your account:
