Requirements: DataWarrior was developed in the Java programming language and needs a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed on your computer to work. Linux distributions usually come with Java preinstalled. MacOS-X typically asks, whether to install a JRE once you try launching DataWarrior with a JRE missing. On Windows, if no JRE is installed, DataWarrior would simply refuse to start.
For Linux or on the Macintosh, to check, whether Java is installed or which version of Java is installed you may type 'java -version' in a terminal or shell. If the command 'java' is not known, you need to install a recent JRE, e.g. from the Java Download Page. DataWarrior also supports the OpenJDK or OpenJRE.
On Windows typing 'java -version' is not conclusive, because it won't detect a 32-bit Java installation on a 64 bit Windows. To check, whether and which version of Java is installed, you may follow the procedure described here.
