This topic explains how you can preconfigure Virtualize during installation to streamline consistent installation across multiple team machines. This process applies to all supported platforms and IDEs.

Sections include:

Preconfiguring the Installation

To preconfigure Virtualize during installation:

  1. Create a localsettings file that includes the options you want to preconfigure the installation with. See Localsettings for details on available options.
  2. Pass that localsettings file to the installer using the /configure or --configure parameter.
    For example:

    • Windows: /configure=<path-to-localsettings-file>

    • Unix: --configure <path-to-localsettings-file>

The localsettings file will be copied into the root directory of Parasoft Test as parasofttest.ini. Settings from that file are used to initialize a clean workspace during startup.

If you want to apply settings to an existing workspace, you need to add an additional property to the localsettings file: enforce.configure=true. This overrides existing settings during the first startup after the installation/reinstallation.

Note that with the Windows installer:

  • If the same version (or a newer version) of Parasoft Test is installed on the machine, the localsettings file won't be copied during installation or reinstallation.
  • If the location passed in /ParasoftTestDir is different than the location of an existing Parasoft Test installation, the localsettings file won't be copied during reinstallation.
