Installing Development Studio

This topic describes how to use the GUI installation program to install the BMC Atrium Orchestrator Development Studio component.

Before you begin

  • BMC recommends that you install and configure the CDP and install content before installing Development Studio.
    You can install Development Studio before installing the CDP and content, but to use content in Development Studio, you must connect to the grid where you installed the content. 
  • You must have downloaded the installation files from the BMC Electronic Product Download (EPD) website.
  • You must ensure that the target computer meets the minimum system requirements for your environment.
  • You must have completed the Development Studio installation worksheet.
  • You must be logged on as an administrator and have administrator rights on the computer on which you install Development Studio.
  • If you are installing on a Windows computer, ensure that Data Execution Prevention (DEP) is configured to recognize the installation program executable (Configuring DEP on Windows computers).
  • You must have exited all other programs.
