TTool Installation: Windows, UNIX

Windows installation

  • Before installing TTool, make sure that a Java Runtime Environment 6 (or later) is installed on your system.
    To do so, open a terminal ("Start", "Execute", type "cmd": a terminal should open). Then, type "java -version". If you obtain an error message, then, you first need to install a Java Runtime Environment). If the version number is less than 6, you need to upgrade your existing installation of the Java Runtime Environment.

  • Then, you need to download TTool

  • Extract the archive in the destination directory of your choice, e.g., in C:\
  • This should create a C:\TTool directory

  • With the file explorer, go into, e.g., C:\TTool\bin, and double-click on ttool.jar

UNIX installation (including MacOS)

  • Before installing TTool, make sure that a Java Runtime Environment 6 (or later) is installed on your system, and that "java" is in your PATH.
    To do so, open a terminal, and type:
    $ java -version
    
    If you obtain an error message (e.g., "command not found"), install a Java Runtime environment and add in your $PATH environment variable the java command. If you obtain a version number less than 5, install a more recent version of the Java Runtime Environment.

  • Then, you need to download TTool

  • Extract the archive in the destination directory of your choice, e.g., in mydir\
  • $ cd mydir
    $ gunzip releaseTTool_0_92.tgz
    $ tar -xof releaseTTool_0_92.tar
    
    By default, TTool uncompresses in a TTool subdirectory.

  • You can then start TTool as follows:
  • $ cd TTool/bin; java -jar ttool.jar
    
    A script called ttool_unix located in the same directory as ttool.jar can also start ttool. It assumes that TTool is installed in /package/TTool: it must therefore be adapted to your own installation if you wish to use it.
