# Install Using the Non-JRE Zip File

This topic describes how to install the Standalone Machine Agent using the zip file that does not include the JRE. You can use this zip file if your environment already has Java 1.8 (or higher) or when installing on an OS environment that does not have an OS-specific installation package on the AppDynamics download site. The agent uses the JRE specified in the `\$JAVA_HOME` environment variable or the default JRE for the server (enter `which java` in a terminal window).

## Install the Machine Agent

1. Before installing, review the installation notes here: Install the Standalone Machine Agent.
2. Download and unzip the ZIP file: Extract the contents to the agent installation directory, `<machine_agent_home>`.
3. Gather your configuration details and configure the agent by editing` <machine_agent_home>/conf/controller-info.xml` file or by adding system properties to the JVM startup script file.
1. (Required) Configure the Controller host name and port number, and account access key
2. (Required for Multi-Tenant Mode or SaaS installations) Configure the Agent Account Information. See Controller Accounts (Multi-Tenancy)
3. (Optional) Review memory requirements. See Standalone Machine Agent Requirements and Supported Environments.
4. (Optional) To configure agent to use SSL see Enable SSL for Standalone Machine Agent.
5. (Optional) To configure the agent to use proxy settings see the proxy settings in Standalone Machine Agent Configuration Property Reference.
6. (Optional) For application and tier name, see Standalone Machine Agent Installation Scenarios to determine if you need to specify an application name and tier name. Usually, if you are installing the Standalone Machine Agent on the same server with any APM app agent, you should not specify application name and tier name.
4. Start the Agent
• Windows, in a terminal window: <machine_agent_home>`\bin\machine-agent.vbs`
• Windows as a service:  <machine_agent_home>`\InstallService.vbs`

• Linux or Unix-like: <machine_agent_home>`/bin/machine-agent`
