GeolOil Software Installation and Maintenance for Windows, MacOS, and Linux platforms


  1. Install or update Java-8 for 64 bits.


    You may have Java-8 x64 bits already installed. If that is your case proceed to the next Step-2. Otherwise install Java-8-JRE x64 bits for Windows (.exe), and Linux (.tar.gz). However, MacOS needs Java-8-JDK x64 bits (.dmg). GeolOil may also run on Java-8 32 bits legacy versions, but with a maximum RAM memory limitation if 1 GB, which is short for some projects.


    If you already have installed a full Java-8 JDK for Windows, MacOS, or Linux, GeolOil will run happily. But the smaller lightwheight JRE for Windows and Linux is enough. Please notice that GeolOil will not run on Java-7 or older versions.


    Regarding Java-9, it is not yet a stable enough release of Java. The tests we have done on Windows show some screen display artifacts (see official display bug). The tests done on MacOS run perfectly. Besides that, Java-9 has a large download size. The JDK for MacOS is close to 400 MB. So unless you really need Java-9 installed for some other software to co-exist with GeolOil, we recommend to stay with Java-8. In any case GeolOil will run both in Java-8 and Java-9, but prefer Java-8.


  2. Download the GeolOil Installer.

  3. Run GeolOil and send us the displayed license serial.


    Click on the CPU/License button. Take a snapshot to the opened window, and email us the grabbed image to activate its license serial. If the email bounces when sending the image attached, just send a plain text email with your license serial typed by hand. Once we received your license serial, we will activate it within 2-5 business days.



Upgrading your license


Any time you upgrade your license, a six steps procedure must be followed to get your new license specifications. The most common case occurs when an user started with a free trial-demo license and decides to acquire a paid license. In other cases the user decides to acquire a perennial license or more modules. All GeolOil upgrading and updating services run silently on background when the machine enters on idle time. Please follow these steps to upgrade your license:

  1. Send us your license serial after your payment is completed.

    Unless your payment included a text message with the license serial to activate (recommended), you must send us your full license serial window (CPU/License button) for its activation via email (preferred), the contact form, or even a phone text message if really needed. We will then prepare your license within 2-5 business days and email you when your license is ready. We recommend to white-list on your email system all incoming emails from geoloil.com.

  2. Close all GeolOil licenses. There is no need to reboot your machine.

  3. Open one GeolOil license, then do nothing for 5-15 minutes

    Once your computer enters in idle time, it will try to connect silently with a geoloil server and pull out your new upgrade.

  4. Close your license. There is no need to reboot your machine.

    If the server connection was successful, the upgrade should be ready to run the next time you open GeolOil.

  5. Open again your license. Click the CPU/License button and verify that everything is OK.

  6. Send us your license serial window again. We need to verify that your upgrade was successful or fix potential issues.



Updating your license


If your license purchase includes maintenance (all lease licenses, and those perennial licenses that paid for maintenance), it will auto-update & auto-install itself silently and automatically on the background when your machine enters in idle time. Then the software update will be available for the next work session (similar as the Windows Operating System does)


If you prefer to enforce a software update manually (if at lease one is available), follow the Steps 2-5 detailed in the Upgrading your license section.



Installing GeolOil over strict Firewall Network Environments


Some large national oil companies have very strict firewall network practices that block many ports, sockets, connections, and unknown servers. During installation, GeolOil exchanges tiny pieces of information between your machine and our servers. Probably some blockage could break down the installation process. It is normal.


Instead of adding exceptions or risky openings to the firewall, we recommend this procedure to install your GeolOil license:

  1. Physically disconnect the machine to the company internet firewall network.

  2. Temporarily connect the machine to other unfirewalled regular wired or wireless Internet Service Provider (ISP). Even a modest portable cell phone Tethering or HotSpot connection could work.

  3. Install java-8 64 bits and GeolOil normally. Run GeolOil and send us your license serial.

  4. Re-connect your machine to the original company internet firewall network. Probably GeolOil would now work, and perhaps be even capable to use the GeolOil auto-update service through the firewall.

  5. If everything fails, your last hope may be, is to purchase a GeolOil perennial license. These are the only type of licenses able to work 100% standalone without any type of internet connections.
