2.1 Installation

Unpack the compressed TSTOOL distribution into a directory, e.g C: $ \backslash$ Program Files on Windows, /usr/local on Unix.

This can be done with an unpacking tool like Winzip if you are working with Windows, or gzip -dc filename.tgz | tar -xvf - if you are working with Unix.

After unpacking you will get a new directory named OpenTSTOOL which should now contain:

Important note for Windows users: If you want to use the pre-compiled mex-files which ship with OpenTSTOOL, you will probably have to install the Visual C++ 2008 run-time libraries, which can be downloaded from the Microsoft web site. As of the writing of this document, the URLs for these packages are

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9b2da534-3e03-4391-8a4d-074b9f2bc1bf

for 32bit and

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=bd2a6171-e2d6-4230-b809-9a8d7548c1b6

for 64bit. If these URLs are no longer valid, just search for ``Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package'' and ``x86'' or ``x64'' for 32bit and 64bit, respectively.

If you do not have these run-time libraries installed, you will get the following error message when trying to run a mex-file: ``This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect.''
