Pinned topic How to install HATS on RDZ

‏2013-02-17T00:45:18Z |
I have RDZ 8.5. Want to play with HATS. How do I install the trail version? I downloaded software but it has Installation Manager in it. I already have Installation Manager in my PC. How do I use my existing Installation Manager and install HATS trail version

    Re: How to install HATS on RDZ

    in order to install HATS you must also have downloaded one of three apps: RBusinessDeveloper or the WebAppDevel tool (websphere?), and there's another i don't remember. I used RBD. once install mgr finished installing the RBD, which will be integrated into your RDz, I tried to install HATS 8.5 trial w/InstallMGr and it didn't work so I went to the download location of my HATS trial and then right click/ run as admin the "install" file w/ file type Application which will be inside the install mgr subfile of your HATS trial file. it may appear to you as install.exe depending on your OS. remember to unzip everything first and always run Install MGR as admin when opening it to do anything. You will be able to open the HATS perspective from RDz once the trial is installed.

    hope this helped.
