I downloaded the latest version of Eclipse last night. Next, I installed TPTP as per the instructions here (using step 1): llguide/InstallGuide.html#install_update_manager_eclipse. That is, I clicked on Help --> Install New Software, and in the "Work with:" field, selected Helios -, and in the scrollbox to select the software, checked "Test and Performance", and downloaded the software. It created and populates this directory: C:\Program Files\Eclipse\eclipse-java-helios-SR1-win32\eclipse\plugins\ org.eclipse.tptp.platform.collection.framework_4.3.0.v201005 061600.

I'm attempting to learn about this by going through this tutorial: tptp.platform.doc.user/tasks/teprlaun.htm (click on "Tutorial: Analyzing profiling data" under "Profiling an application").
The problem I'm having is that the documentation is inconsistent with the software. For example, it says in step 1 to click on the Profile drop-down and select "Profile". Mine doesn't have a "Profile" selection, but it does have a "Profile Configuration" selection, so I selected that. In step 8, it says to click on the "Monitor" tab. I don't have a "Monitor" tab, but I do have a "Profile Settings" tab, so I clicked on that. I expanded "Java Profiling", and discovered several tree nodes similar to what is mentioned in step 9, but I can only select one at a time - each selection undoes the previous. In step 9, it says to select several of them.

So anyway, I'm wondering if I've some how got an old version of software and/or documentation. I'm using java version "1.6.0_21" on Windows Vista.

Hi Lyle,

As you noted, the documentation is slightly out of date. Profile is now Profile Configurations, and Monitor is now Profile Settings. Likewise, the Java 5.0+ based profiler may only profile one type at a time (execution/memory/thread) and consequently only one check box may be checked at a time.

And from your description, you are in fact using the latest TPTP release.
