Installation Notes

Java

Oracle Java Platform 8 (JDK) must be installed. Installation packages can be downloaded from here:

Java Platform, Standard Edition: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

Note: Open-JDK cannot be used because of the lack of JavaFX support.

Java 9

Current version of CS-Studio doesn't run on the Java 9 VM. If you have installed Java 9 (possibly because you are evaluating or working with it) and Java 8, then you need to tell CS-Studio to used Java 8.

On MacOS X
  • Right-click on the ESS CS-Studio.app application and select Show Package Contents menu item;
  • Navigate into the Contents/Eclipse folder and edit the ESS CS-Studio.ini file;
  • Before --launcher.library add the following two lines:

-vm

/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_152.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/bin

where jdk1.8.0_152.jdk should be replaced by the Java 8 version you have.

css-update

Note: the following instuctions are deprecated for the Development Machine 3.0.0 and newer. The supported method to update CS-Studio is described here.

css-update.sh is a linux script that will make easy update CS-Studio to a specific version. Download it into your home directory, then execute the following commands:

    sudo mv ~/css-update.sh /usr/bin/css-update
    sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/css-update

Now you can use it in the following manner: css-update [-d] <version>, where 

  • -d will take updates from the development repository,
  • <version> is the version you want to be updated to.

This command:

  • will move /opt/cs-studio folder into /opt/cs-studio-<old-version>,
  • will download the requested version and extract it into a temporary folder,
  • will move the extracted version into /opt/cs-studio.

Example: css-update -d 4.5.0.1 will download the development version of CS–Studio 4.5.0.1 and install it into /opt so next time the css command will be run the new version of CS-Studio will start.
