The following installation tips, or guidelines, hold mostly in the case when you have downloaded Dezyne (via the Download page) and you would like to start using it.

  1. If you intend to use only the command line interface of Dezyne, also known as 'dzn', please follow the steps outlined in the guidelines to install and use the Dezyne command-line client

  2. If you intend to install and use Dezyne in an existing Eclipse installation, please follow the steps outlined in the guidelines to install and use Dezyne as plugin in Eclipse

if you did not register yet as a Dezyne user:

Please follow this link Register as Dezyne user, click on REGISTER, and fill in the required data to start and complete the registration as Dezyne user.

Please follow these steps:

  1. Stop/Exit Dezyne

  2. End all (possibly hanging) Dezyne related tasks/processes

    • on Windows: end all 'node.exe' tasks using 'End Task' in the Task Manager

    • on Linux and MacOS: run 'killall node' command in a Terminal

  3. Remove previous Nodejs (with npm), dzn and dzn_daemon installations

    • on Windows:

      • remove the 'node-v6.10.1-win-x64' folder in 'C:\Users\windows_user', or

      • remove the 'npm' and 'npmrc' folders in 'C:\Users\windows_user\AppData\Roaming' and uninstall 'Node.js' via 'Control Panel → Programs → Programs and Features

    • on Linux and MacOS: remove '~/.npm'

  4. Start Dezyne (and follow all required steps to install Nodejs and dzn, the Dezyne command line client)

    the dzn_daemon will be automatically installed as a first step after dzn is installed (i.e. you do not have to do anything special, just wait until installation completes)

if you run Dezyne behind a (corporate) firewall/proxy:

Dezyne ensures that whenever needed you have the possibility to specify the proxy settings needed to connect to the Dezyne services.

Please follow these steps to specify the required proxy related settings/credentials:

  1. Click on the 'Network Connections' link in the dialog window

    If you need to change the specified proxy settings go to Window→Preferences→General→Network Connections
  2. Specify 'Manual' as 'Active Provider'

  3. Fill in the required settings after pressing 'Edit' for HTTP and HTTPS

  4. (not required but recommended) Clear the check box next to SOCKS

    if you use the command line interface of Dezyne behind a (corporate) firewall/proxy you have to set the 'http_proxy' environment variable conforming to the following format: 'http_proxy=http://[user[:password]@]proxy[:port]'.
