For the stability of the Trader Workstation, you need to make sure not to have more than one Java (Java Runtime Environment) on your PC.
This procedure is needed only if you have Windows as operating system on your computer.
You don't have to open your web-browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari) to use the browser-based Trader Workstation. You could have a desktop shortcut for it, the same way it is for the standalone version. The icon will be in a different color than the one for the standalone, so that you could have both shortcuts.
Follow the instructions in this movie to have the ease of login of the standalone version and the convenience of the browser based platform right on your Desktop.
This movie is destined to users with the Windows operating systems.
