The code name for the next release of the IDE is called Tau. You can experiment with the new features of Tau after you install one of the IDE Tau integration builds. We welcome your suggestions for improvement. Use the IDE Forum for discussions about the IDE, and to post your questions, comments, and suggestions.

Check out What is New in IDE? page to see what features and bugs are available in current build and what will be available in the next build.

Installation Instructions#

To install IDE Tau:

  • 1. Download and install QNX Momentics 6.3.2.
  • 2. Download of the IDE integration builds from the Project Download area.
  • 3. Save the ".zip" file you downloaded to a temporary directory. Use your favorite unzip program (such as "Winzip" on Windows, or using the "unzip" command on Linux) to extract the zip file.
  • 4. Extract the zip file content. The extraction process creates an "eclipse" directory.
  • 5. For Linux:
    • a.) Ensure that the "$QNX_HOST/usr/bin" appears at the beginning of the $PATH environment variable. You can include it by using this command:
      • export PATH=$QNX_HOST/usr/bin:$PATH
      • To verify where it appears in the $PATH variable, use the following command in a shell: "echo $PATH"
    • b.) Set the "LD_LIBRARY_PATH" by issuing this command:
    • c.) Disable "SELinux" if it is currently enabled.
      • Configure SELinux by launching "Desktop"->"System Settings"->"Security Level".
      • Click the SELinux tab, unselect "Enabled", then reboot your system.
    • d.) To launch the IDE, run "eclipse/qde".
  • 6. For Windows:
    • a.) Ensure that "%QNX_HOST%\usr\bin" is included in the %PATH% environment variable. To verify where it appears in the $PATH variable, use the following command in a Windows command prompt:
      • set %PATH%
    • b.) To launch the IDE, run "eclipse\qde.exe".

Update Instructions#

Full IDE archive#

  1. Download of the IDE integration builds from the Project Download area.
  2. Create a directory to store integration build (you can use same directory as for previous installation)
  3. Extract the zip file content inside installation directory. The extraction process creates an "eclipse" directory.
  4. Run "qde" from eclipse directory

Update site#

  • Update site for integration build will be available shortly

After You Install#

After you install, the first time you start the IDE on Windows, the Workspace Launcher dialog prompts you for a location to store your workspace. By default, the IDE offers to put your workspace in a sub-directory called "ide-tau-workspace". To store your workspace in another location, click "Browse" and select a directory for your workspace. To continue loading the IDE, click "OK".


This is experimental code that is being provided for evaluation purposes only under the terms of a valid QNX Momentics development tool license agreement.
