Install Jtest

The Jtest installation consists of two parts: installing the Jtest application proper and installing rule configuration.
  1. Install the Jtest application
  2. Install the Jtest rule configuration

  1. Normally, you can just rely on the TICS Windows installer to install the Jtest code checker for you. Start the installer, select Multi Server (advanced), and enable TICS file server checkers. In case this does not install Jtest, follow the steps below to accomplish this manually.
