You can install Virtualizeas a standalone, Eclipse-based application or as an Eclipse plug-in.

Standalone Installation

  1. Run the setup executable that you downloaded from the Parasoft Web site.
  2. Follow the installation program's onscreen instructions to install the application into your preferred directory (default is C:\Program Files\Parasoft).

The default workspace will be added and set to the <user_home_dir>/parasoft/workspace directory (e.g., C:\Users\username\parasoft\virtualize_workspace).The default workspace is preselected in the Select a Workspace dialog when you first start the application. If you select a different workspace, the new workspace will be preselected when you start the application from that point forward.

The command line interface uses the default workspace any time that you do explicitly specify a workspace from the command line (with the -data argument)—whether or not you have previously run the command line interface with another workspace.

Windows SmartScreen Filter

Windows 8.x and later ships with a security feature called SmartScreen, which may attempt to prevent you from completing the installation.


Click the More info link and click Run anyway when prompted to allow Windows to complete the installation.

Parasoft software is digitally signed and will not harm your system.
