A directory under parasoft/virtualize/<version> (Linux) or virtualize/<version>/ (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.

titleAccessing 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

Plug-in Installation

  1. Launch Eclipse and choose Help> Install New Software from the Eclipse menu.
  2. Click Add. 
  3. Click Archive and browse for theparasoft_virtualize_<version> archive.

  4. Click Add and select all Parasoft items to install.
  5. Click Finish and restart Eclipse when prompted. 


titleFrozen 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.
