Download and install
For detailed installation instructions for the Design Management 3.0 release, see the Interactive installation guide. For quick, high-level instructions, complete the following steps:
- If you installed a previous milestone or release candidate release of Rational® Software Architect Design Manager or Rational Rhapsody Design Manager, you must completely uninstall all components (the server, the server extensions, import engine, and client extensions) before installing this release.
- On the All Downloads tab, download the following .zip files based on the Rational modeling product that you use:
- IBM Rational Software Architect Design Manager - All
- IBM Rational Rhapsody Design Manager - All
- Extract the contents of the downloaded .zip files into a temporary location, so that you have the following directories:
- IBM Rational Software Architect Design Manager: RSADM_Setup, DM_Server, RSADM_Server, RSADM_ImportEngine, RSADM_Client
- IBM Rational Rhapsody Design Manager: RhapsodyDM_Setup, DM_Server, RhapsodyDM_Server, RhapsodyDM_ImportEngine, RhapsodyDM_Client
- Rational Software Architect: Install the client extension into an installation of Rational Software Architect, version 8.0 or later. Use the launchpad to begin the client extension installation process. If you do not have a licensed version of Rational Software Architect installed, you can download and install an evaluation version.
- Rational Rhapsody: Download, install, and configure Rational Rhapsody, version 7.6. Use the launchpad to begin the client extension installation process. If you do not have a licensed version of Rational Rhapsody installed, you can download and install an evaluation version.
