IKVM.NET is a cross-compiler and a runtime that enables unmodified Java JARs to run on the .NET platform (including Mono).

This package includes the following tools:

  • ikvm: The runtime itself. Similar to the java executable, this tool runs JARs or raw class files using the Common Language Runtime through IKVM.NET.
  • ikvmc: This executable compiles class files or JARs into a EXE or DLL usable on the .NET platform, without requiring that the JRE be installed.
  • ikvmstub

To install IKVM.NET, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install ikvm

To upgrade IKVM.NET, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade ikvm
