We have the application migration toolkit version to version zip file version 3.5 installed on multiple machines on RAD 8.5. Some of them show-up "Websphere application server version migration" in the dropdown list but other machines do not. There is one more option missing from those machines as well, though I don't remember it at the moment.
Is there any set-up missing on those machines that do not show these dropdown items?
Also, how do we verify, what version of the toolkit is installed with a particular RAD installation?

If you go to Help > Install New Software..., then click the already installed link. A list of all the installed software will be displayed. You should see several "Application Migration Tool" features in the Installed Software list.

Re: Application Migration Toolkit - Software Analyzer menu -> Rules -> Dropdown2013-03-15T15:09:56Z in response to SystemAdminThis now has gotten more confusing.
When I check my installation, I see 3 selections, but others do not see anything in the installed software, even though they get the menu option and also some of the Java rules
I have attached a document with the screen-shots from both the installations.

I see that RAD is used in this case so further explanation may help. The WebSphere Application Migration Toolkit is built on top of a technology called RSAR. This technology is what provides the basic "Software Analyzer..." option in the popups and the "Run" menu as well as a framework to write rules run by RSAR. This support is provided within RAD and RSA and includes some basic Java rules as you have seen in the snapshots.
WebSphere Application Migration Toolkit uses this RSAR technology to provide additional rules for WebSphere Application Server migrations. This is provided via download and when installed is expanded into the 3 features described by Cindy.
In short the RAD images don't have WebSphere Application Migration Toolkit installed, just the base Java rules provided by RAD
Re: Application Migration Toolkit - Software Analyzer menu -> Rules -> Dropdown2013-03-15T22:00:26Z in response to DanaDuffieldAhh, so the other images that do not have the server options do not have the migration toolkit installed. Is that correct? Thanks. This makes sense why that wouldn't show up in installed products. I was told by our desktop support team that they have been installing the toolkit when installing RAD, hence my confusion. This helps in clearing that.
