Installation Directories

The DTP installation consists of two main directories:

  • the application directory that contains binaries, the web server, and other files,
  • and a data directory that contains configuration files and data reported to DTP from connected test execution and code analysis tools.

For Windows, the data directory is installed in the C:\ProgramData\Parasoft directory. You can configure the location of the application directory when running the installer, but the default location is C:\Program Files\Parasoft\DTP (see Installing DTP on Windows).

The Linux installer requires you to choose where to install DTP directories (see Installing DTP on Linux).

In this documentation, <DTP_INSTALL> refers to the application directory location and <DTP_DATA_DIR> refers to the data directory location for both operating systems. 


DTP 5.4.3 and older installed DTP into single directory. When you upgrade from an older version, the installer will move the application and data files into the correct locations as part of the upgrade process. See Upgrading for additional information.
