About this task

For Microsoft Windows operating systems:
  • Click Start > Programs > IBM® Rational® Test RealTime > IBM® Rational® Test RealTime for Eclipse IDE to start Rational® Test RealTime for Eclipse IDE.
  • Click Start > Programs > IBM® Rational® Test RealTime > IBM® Rational® Test RealTime Studio to start Rational® Test RealTime Studio for testing C, C++, Ada.
  • To start Rational® Test RealTime for Eclipse IDE from a command line, type this command: <installation_directory>\eclipse.exe -product com.ibm.rational.testrealtime.product.ide.
  • To start IBM® Rational® Test RealTime Studio from a command line, type this command: <installation_directory>\bin\intel\win32\studio.exe
If the installation location or Shared Resources directory for your product is in a directory in the path C:\Program Files, you can run the product only as the administrator. To run as administrator, right-click the program shortcut, and click Run as administrator.
Note: For Windows, the Program Files directory is usually virtualized in order to allow users who are not running as the administrator to have write access to this protected directory. However, the virtualization workaround is not compatible with your product. If you selected an installation location or shared resources directory in the path C:\Program Files\ and you do not want to require running your product as Administrator, complete one of these steps:
  • Reinstall your product and any other programs that sharing the same installation location, and select an installation location that is not in the path C:\Program Files\.
  • Reinstall your product and all Software Delivery Platform product packages (regardless of their installation location), and select a shared resources directory and installation locations that are not in the path C:\Program Files\
