Installation Guide
Installation Guide V4.0 (all releases)

The TPTP release build download pages list the TPTP packages, prerequisites, and dependencies available for download. You can install TPTP packages manually or using the Eclipse Update Manager.

Installing TPTP prerequisites and dependencies

To install TPTP prerequisites and dependencies: 

  1. Download and install the prerequisites listed under Requirements (4.0.0 | 4.0.1 | 4.0.1.1 | 4.0.1.2) in the release build download page. The prerequisites include the Java runtime, Eclipse, and required Eclipse components. Unzip required Eclipse component packages to the Eclipse SDK installation directory, for example, D:\eclipse.
  2. Download and install the Agent Controller.
    • Download the Agent Controller (4.0.0 | 4.0.1 | 4.0.1.1 | 4.0.1.2), a daemon process that enables client applications to launch host processes and interact with agents that coexist within host processes. Click the Runtime or SDK link next to the platforms on which you want to run Agent Controller. Select an appropriate download site and save the zip file.
    • To install the Agent Controller, unzip the zip file into a directory of your choice (e.g.  c:\raserver). For information on setting up and running Agent Controller, see the Agent Controller Getting Started Guide.
  3. Optionally, download and install Native Logging (4.0.0 | 4.0.1 | 4.0.1.1 | 4.0.1.2) packages, an implementation of Common Base Event v1.0.1 for use in C/C++ environment.
    • Select the appropriate Native Logging Runtime or SDK from the download page. Choose an appropriate download site and save the zip file.
    • To install Native Logging, unzip the zip file into a directory of your choice.

Installing TPTP packages

To install TPTP packages manually:
  1. Download the desired TPTP Runtime and SDK (4.0.0 | 4.0.1 | 4.0.1.1 | 4.0.1.2) packages (Platform, Monitoring Tools, Testing Tools, or All), by clicking a Runtime or SDK link as appropriate. Download either:
    • The Runtime zip if you wish to use TPTP and not extend it
    • The SDK zip (Runtime plus source) if you wish to extend TPTP

    Whether Runtime or SDK, default to downloading All unless you want a specialized TPTP environment.

    Choose a specialized environment if you want to test, or to monitor, or to profile, but do not need all three types of functionality. In this case, download Platform and the specialized environment (Monitoring Tools, Testing Tools, or Tracing and Profiling Tools). Platform is a prerequisite for monitoring, testing, tracing and profiling.

  2. Select a convenient download mirror and save the zip file.
  3. Unzip the TPTP package into the Eclipse SDK installation directory, for example, D:\eclipse.
