Unpack the compressed TSTOOL distribution into a directory, e.g C: 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
for 32bit and
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 If these URLs are no longer valid, just search for ``Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package'' and ``x86'' or ``x64'' for 32bit and 64bit, respectively.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.''
