If your Eclipse is configured to use Java 11 or higher, it may require additional dependencies to be downloaded from software update sites. Ensure that Eclipse is configured to automatically contact all update sites when you install C/C++test.
If C/C++test is not available in your IDE after installation, you may need to install the Apache Geronimo Activation Plug-In. The current builds provided by the Eclipse Orbit Project are available at: https://download.eclipse.org/tools/orbit/downloads:
Visual Studio 2017 introduced new performance management options to monitor and manage extensions that can affect startup time. As a result, a pop-up alert may appear when Parasoft DTP Plugin is installed to indicate that Visual Studio startup time has increased. You can click the Manage Visual Studio Performance link in the pop-up window to review the startup times and disable displaying the alert.
To have access to all Parasoft options in the Solution Explorer context menu, ensure that one of the following workloads is installed with your Visual Studio 2017:
If the Parasoft DTP Plugin for Visual Studio is reinstalled, Visual Studio 2015 may fail to display code markers that indicate analysis findings or code coverage in the editor. This is caused by a Visual Studio known issue (see MEFCache bug breaks text adornments in any package for details).
To ensure that code markers are properly shown, clear the Visual Studio MEF cache each time you reinstall or updated the Parasoft DTP Plugin. Use one of the following options:
<SUFFIX>parameter during installation: %localappdata%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0<suffix_name>\ComponentModelCache
Changes in the network environment may affect the interface that is used to compute your machine ID and result in machine ID instability. You can use the PARASOFT_SUPPORT_NET_INTERFACES environment variable to specify a stable interface and prevent the machine ID from floating.
Set the variable value to a stable Ethernet network interface. Do not use virtual, temporary or loopback interfaces.
- On Windows: Set the value to the MAC address of your network card. You can use the
ipconfig -all command to obtain the address. For example:
- On Linux: Set the value to one of the network interfaces from the "inet" or "inet6" family. You can use the
ifconfig command to obtain the list of available interfaces. For example:
If the problem persists, you can obtain diagnostic information by setting up the environment variable PARASOFT_DEBUG_NET_INTERFACES and setting its value to true. This will print to the standard output the checking procedure that can be shared with technical support, as well as the interface that is used to compute your machine ID. The interface will be marked with the [SELECTED] prefix.
Typically, if you connect through a proxy server, you need to configure the connection by passing protocol-specific system properties to the JVM – using the
-D command line option.
To work with C/C++test, ensure that the system properties for the HTTPS protocol are configured. At a minimum, you must configure
https.proxyPort=[port number]. If your proxy server requires authentication, you can configure your credentials with the
Your command line may resemble the following:
java -Dhttps.proxySet=true -Dhttps.proxyHost=myserver.example.com -Dhttps.proxyPort=8080 -Dhttps.proxyUser=user1 -Dhttps.proxyPassword=MyPassword
In addition, you can configure the
https.nonProxyHosts property to specify hosts where connection via proxy is not required.
If you use C/C++test on desktop with Eclipse, the proxy settings are automatically detected and do not need to be configured in the command line.
The proxy mode is not supported for Visual Studio.
To ensure the analysis completes, you can do one of the following:
