Accessing a deployed installation

Updated: May 29, 2023

Launching the QNX Momentics IDE

If you're a developer that needs to use the deployed installation created with the Deploy Installation feature, follow these steps:

  1. Set up your QNX environment, as follows:

    • On a Linux or macOS host, open a shell, then run this script from the root of the installation:
    • On a Windows host, open a command prompt window, then run this script from the root of the installation:
  2. Run qcc, which performs a license check:
    If the license check succeeds...
    The qcc command prints “no files to process”. You can now run the command-line tools (qcc, qdb, mkefs, etc.) or launch the QNX Momentics IDE from the command line, if it was added to the installation (see below).
    If the license check fails...
    You will see a license check error. The error message will indicate the nature of the problem.

If your deployed installation does not contain a shared license, you will need to activate your license using the QNX Software Center. If you do not own a myQNX account, use the qlicense utility. See the Utilities Reference chapter of the QNX Software Development Platform guide for more information.

To launch the IDE from the command line, you can use the qde command, which you'll find under root_of_deployed installation/Momentics_folder/.

For instance, let's say you created a deployed installation in Windows, using the following parameters:

In that case, the qde command will be located in the C:\SDP\deploy-qnx700\Momentics70\ folder.

You can also launch the QNX Momentics IDE from the macOS or Windows GUI, provided you have set up your QNX environment, as described above.

Accessing the deployed installation

Once you've launched the IDE, perform these steps:
  • Select Window > Preferences > QNX.
  • Make sure that the Select SDK field is set to Use Environment Variables, then click Apply and Close.

The IDE should now be able to access your deployed QNX SDP installation.
