1.1.1. Software requirements

This section lists the software components that must be available to run Fast Models.

Linux

The following software is required for Linux:

Operating system
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 4 or 5 (on a 32-bit operating system variant).

  • xorg-x11-devel (makedepend) if using RHEL4.

  • imake-1.0.2-3 (makedepend) if using RHEL5.

The required GNU software is provided as a separate, and optional, download package. The tools are provided in binary form. The source for the GNU software is available on request.

Shell

A shell compatible with sh, such as bash or tcsh.

Compiler

gcc version 3.4.3 on RHEL 4 or 5.

Note

The compiler supplied with RHEL 5.x is gcc 4.1.x. To run Fast Models, you can either provide your own implementation of gcc 3.4.3 or use the supported version. ARM recommends that you install the supported gcc version.

The gcc toolchain must be 32-bit, even if running on a 64-bit processor.

Adobe Acrobat reader

Version 5 or higher.

License management utilities

If you are using floating licenses, FLEXlm version 9.2 or higher. Newer versions are called FLEXnet.

FLEXnet 10.8 license management utilities are available through a link on the ESL support website, on the same page from which you downloaded your tools. Use the highest version of the license management utilities provided with any ARM tools you are using. If you do not have a copy of these utilities, contact ARM License Support, license.support@arm.com.

Windows

The following software is required for Windows:

Operating system

Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or Vista (32-bit operating system).

Compiler

Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 with Service Pack 1 or Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 with Service Pack 1 on Windows XP.

Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 with Service Pack 1 on Windows Vista.

Note

Fast Models does not contain the Visual Studio runtime libraries. If Visual Studio is not installed, you must download and install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 (or 2008 SP1) Redistribution Package to run models on your workstation. The service package is available from the Microsoft web site.

Version 5 or higher.

License management utilities

If you are using floating licenses, FLEXlm version 9.2 or higher. Newer versions are called FLEXnet.

FLEXnet 10.8 license management utilities are available through a link on the ESL support website, on the same page from which you downloaded your tools. Use the highest version of the license management utilities provided with any ARM tools you are using. If you do not have a copy of these utilities, contact ARM License Support by emailing license.support@arm.com.

Note

If you are using Microsoft Windows Remote Desktop (RDP) to access System Canvas or a simulator generated by System Canvas, the type of license you have for Fast Model Tools or the Fast Model Portfolio can restrict use of the product:

  • Floating licenses require a license server and do not have any special restrictions relating to use of Remote Desktop. Such licenses are normally issued to Fast Models users who have purchased the tool.

  • Node-locked licenses are tied to a specific workstation. These licenses do not work over Remote Desktop connections. Node-locked licenses are typically issued to users who are evaluating Fast Models. If this limitation prevents your evaluation of the product, contact license.support@arm.com and request a floating evaluation license.
