2. How to install

RationalPlan is a cross platform application installable on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Unix and all Java enabled platforms.

A window will appear on first installation asking for a license file.

Choose the Browse button and select your licensed key file. The window will change as follows:

Choose the Continue button to launch the application.

2.1. Windows installation

RationalPlan will run on any Windows version from Win98 above including Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. On Windows download or purchase one of the .exe files. Double-click the file and follow the installation steps and make your own settings for destination folder and shortcuts if needed.

In order to perform a silent install use /S switch. To specify where the program will be installed use /D="output directory". These options are case-sensitive. Ensure they are typed in upper case.

In order to register the license automatically at install time you need to use one of our .msi installers with a command line like this:

RationalPlanM-4.3.msi LICENSE="C:/Users/Tibi/Desktop/key.out2"

Where key.out2 is the license file that you obtained after purchase.

2.2. Mac OS X installation

On Mac platform our RationalPlan product suite requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher. No previous Mac version is supported. The package distribution is delivered as a .dmg file (Macintosh OS X Disk Copy Disk Image File). Just double-click on it and a window as below will appear containing a link to the "Applications" folder from Mac and our product file.

Either run it by double-clicking on the second file or you can install it. For installation just drag and drop the application file - the one from the right - over the "Applications" folder. It will be copied there and can be run from there at any time.

NOTE: If your login account is without administrative rights - you will be prompted to give administrative user and password before the file copy will begin.

2.3. Linux installation

For Linux platform we deliver a .zip distribution file. The installation is of unzip and run type. Download one of the .zip files. After download is complete just unzip to the folder you want to install the application. You will find a RationalPlan.sh script that must be run from a terminal/console with this command:

sh RationalPlan.sh

The application will start.
