This chapter gives an overview of the Tricentis Tosca installation.
To get an overview of all tasks that administrators need to perform to set up Tricentis Tosca for users, see chapter "Set up Tricentis Tosca".
You have the necessary software and hardware listed in the
Tricentis Tosca system requirements.
You have downloaded the Tricentis Tosca installation package (see chapter "Download the installation packages").
The package contains the installation file Tricentis Tosca13.4.exe.
You have local administrator rights, which you need to install Tricentis Tosca.
The user of the machine on which you install Tricentis Tosca has write permission for the directory %TRICENTIS_PROJECTS%. By default, the directory path is C:\Tosca_Projects. The user needs this permission to work with Tricentis Tosca.
You can install Tricentis Tosca in one of the following ways:
Via setup dialog
as described in chapter "Install Tricentis Tosca via setup dialog".
In unattended mode
as described in chapter "Install Tricentis Tosca in unattended mode". In this case, the setup completes the installation without user interaction.
During installation, Tricentis Tosca installs all default AddIns. For some of these AddIns, for instance Requirements Management, you need a separate license.
If you don't have a license for a particular AddIn, you can view its objects in Tricentis Tosca, but you can't edit them.
If you want to adjust specific settings for individual work stations after the installation, Tricentis recommends that you first perform a prototype installation on one machine.
By default, Tricentis Tosca stores settings files at C:\Program Files(x86)\TRICENTIS\Tosca Testsuite\. This directory contains the following sub-director
Classic\dll\Settings\XML\ for Classic Engines
DistributedExecution\Settings for Tosca Distributed Executions
Licensing\Settings\ for Licensing
TBox\Settings\ for Engines 3.0
You can then copy the settings files into the corresponding directory on the target computers. This allows you to configure settings which you cannot configure during the installation process. These are managed directly by the central software administration.

Tricentis Tosca in 32-bit supports DB2 repositories by default.
If you want to use DB2 repositories in 64-bit installations, you need to perform additional steps after you have installed Tricentis Tosca. For more information, see chapter "Use DB2 repositories in 64-bit installations".
