How to install OpenTool/UML-1.4 for ADELFE

Just click on the OptlAdelfe_1_2_00_liv.exe file and follow the instructions (sorry, they are in French but we think you'll understand them).

By default, the executable file for OpenTool is placed under C:\Tni\Adelfe\bin.w32\opentool.exe but you can change this path and install the tool elsewhere.

A shortcut is also added in the Start Menu folder, as well as an uninstall option.

If you choose to install OpenTool in the default directory, the previous ADELFE toolkit is already configured to find and execute it when needed.

If you install OpenTool under another directory, you must make the link by yourself, change the directory via Edit-Parameter.

Then by clicking on the button, you'll launch this tool.

This software is an trial version. If you create more than 50 objects (class, diagram, ...), a message will be printed before each action.
