Have you ever tried to run a java application or play a java game in your PC ? Obviously windows don’t support running .jar/.jad file. But sometimes you might need to run it on your PC. May be for testing or debugging or may be just for fun.

So, Can you run java application on your windows? Still the answer is no but there are some “Emulator”s which can make this possible. I found 4-5 ways to do so. Here I am sharing the best two of them. The 1st one is “MicroEmulator” and I think it’s the best among all. But the fact is, you must need both .jar and .jad file to use this. Well it’s not a big deal because there is “Jad Maker” software. Still there’s a problem. It can run very few java software (To be more definite, I found only Opera Mini and Bolt Browser are working with this). The 2nd one is “KEmulator” and it can run almost all java files along with application and games. It doesn’t need a .jad file too.

So if you are trying to browse internet at the lowest cost in pc, then you should try “MicroEmulator” but if you need to play java games or test other java application, then get “KEmulator”.

Ok, Now let’s know how to do it.
