Installing and Starting the RTViewCentral

Do not include spaces in the installation directory path. The start_server.shstop_server.sh and statuts_server.sh scripts will not function properly if spaces are included in the installation directory path.

  1. Extract All (Windows)/unzip (UNIX/Linux) Unzip the file to the directory of your choice. For UNIX/Linux, use unzip -a to unzip the file.

2. Open a command window and set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to point to your Java Installation.


export JAVA_HOME=/opt/Java/jdk1.8.0_91 (UNIX/Linux)

set JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_91 (Windows)

Or, in Windows, you can set JAVA_HOME as an environment variable (in Control Panel > System >Advanced system settings), where it will then be used by all command windows when you double-click on a .bat file.

3. In the command window, navigate to the RTViewCentral directory and type:

start_servers.bat (Windows)

./start_servers.sh (UNIX/Linux)

Or, in Windows, you can double-click on the start_servers.bat file. For this to work, JAVA_HOME has to be set up in the System Environment Variables.
