Installation


  1. If you haven’t already done so, copy the installation file to the directory where you would like to install Virtualize.
  2. Change directories to the directory where you are going to install Virtualize.
  3. Set "execute" permissions on the installer.
    • chmod +x parasoft_virtualize_<version>_linux.sh
    • chmod +x parasoft_virtualize_<version>_macosx.sh
  4. Execute the installer, then follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation.
    • ./parasoft_virtualize_<version>_linux.sh
    • ./parasoft_virtualize__<version>_macosx.sh

A directory under parasoft/virtualize/<version> (Linux) or virtualize/<version>/ParasoftVirtualize.app/Contents/ParasoftVirtualize (Mac) will be created. We refer to this location as <virtualize_install_dir> throughout this user guide. The Virtualize executable, command line interface, examples, manuals, etc. are available within this directory.


Accessing Application Contents on MacOS

After installation is completed, an application icon will be added in Finder. This is the icon that you double-click to launchVirtualize. If you want to view the various files and folders available within the installation, right-click the icon, and choose Show Package Contents

Frozen Workspace Launcher?

On Eclipse 4.5 and Mac OS X 10.11, there is a known issue with the workspace launcher freezing (becoming unresponsive) when Virtualize starts up. The workaround is to launch Virtualize from the command line with the –nosplash argument.

See Licensing for details on configuring your license.
