Installation of Arriba

This chapter contains a description of various issues related to installation and setup of the Arriba development tool.

Product Distribution

Arriba is delivered as an executable, self-installing image, or as an Eclipse plugin. The Arriba package also contains example pre-built project source code that should serve as a good starting point for new Arriba users.

The release notes associated with each new Arriba release can be found in the file readme.txt. Please review this file to see what has changed between successive Arriba releases.

Arriba Installation Directory

We recommend that Arriba be installed in the default directory, which varies depending on the host computer Operating System. On Windows, Arriba is installed under:

c:\Program Files\Arriba4PIC

Subsequent versions of Arriba will install in a version specific directory as well—allowing multiple versions of Arriba to co-exist on the host platform.

Arriba Install Flow

Arriba utilizes izPack for installing Arriba on the host machine. To install Arriba, run the executable installer, either from the command line, or by double-clicking on it from the desktop. The main Arriba installer screen is shown in Step 1:
