What do you mean actually ? 1. If it doesn't support .jar file then install java. 2.Reading the description i understand that java is installed, may be you are talking about setting PATH? If so, then seach for environmental variable then edit the variable named PATH. Change its value by adding a semicolon(if windows os) or colon(if linux) and then continuing with the absolute bin path of where java's jdk folder is present.

Open cmd where the the file is present. Then run that file via command , "java -jar filename.jar"

Set PATH environment variable and select the default app as java for opening jar files.
