Windows Security Alert - "Windows Firewall has blocked some features of this app"

Q - When attempting to launch Voyant for the first time I get the following Windows security alert, "Windows Firewall has blocked some of the features of this app". 

Can you please confirm that Voyant uses Java.  Should allow Java to have internet access through the Windows firewall? 

 

A - Voyant does use Java. This message is from the Windows Firewall on your computer. You will need to click the Allow Access button, bottom-right, to allow Java, which runs Voyant, internet access in order to run the software.

Further information on the software's operational requirements can be found here. Read more >>
