    • If you are building a safety product, the QNX OS for Safety 1.0 (Don't install Patch ID 650SP1-51 if you install this product)
  • We post CRC and MD5 checksums with the packages in the Download area on our website. If you download an installer from our website, make sure that its checksum matches that given on the website. On Unix-style OSs (e.g., QNX Neutrino, Linux), you can use the cksum utility to calculate the CRC checksum. Microsoft doesn't support such utilities on Windows, but they're available from third parties.
  • There are several QNX Development License streams that govern how the QNX Platform for ADAS 1.0 can be used in different situations. The key on your license certificate will cause the appropriate license agreement to be displayed when you install the product; that development license governs your use of the product.
  • After you've installed the QNX Platform for ADAS 1.0, you'll find a copy of all the license agreements in base_directory/install/qnx-adas/1.0, where base_directory is where you installed the software.
  • For more information about licensing, visit the Licensing area of http://www.qnx.com, where you'll find details on our licensing model, types of licenses, etc., or email licensing@qnx.com.
  • For information about features and known issues, see the release notes. For the most up-to-date version, go to our website, http://www.qnx.com, log in to your myQNX account, and then go to the Download area.
  • We provide the Korn shell (ksh.exe), which you'll find under ${QNX_HOST}/usr/bin (e.g., C:\qnx660\host\win32\x86\usr\bin). You may want to create desktop shortcuts for the executables you'll use often.
  • On Windows, the QNX-provided echo.exe interprets the Windows \ separator as an escape character. As a result, environment variable settings won't work if you use \ as a path separator; use / instead. (Ref# 19924, J142704)
  • If your PATH contains quotation marks, ln-w doesn't work properly. (Ref# 20046)
  • You require a key to install this product. Ensure you have a key before you start the installer.
