Papyrus-RT/User/User Guide/Eclipse Installer


Installing Papyrus for Real Time using the Eclipse Installer


This tutorial will show you how to install Papyrus for Real Time using the Oomph-based Eclipse Installer.

You need to install Java 8 (64 bits). You can obtain it here. Note that Papyrus-RT will not work with Java 9 or with a 32-bit version of Java 8, or Java 7 and below.

Operating System
The instructions in this tutorial are illustrated using screen captures from multiple operating systems. Steps and images may differ slightly if the installation is done on a different operating system (both Windows and Mac OS are supported for developing models). Some of these differences have been indicated when known, but some may also be missing.

We have had reports that the next step (Install the Eclipse Installer) fails on some Windows installations and we are investigating. If that is the case for you, using Java 8 has proven a solution for some. If it still does not work, please follow the instructions on the manual installation tutorial (>.
