Finding the version of installed toolsetsΒΆ

For command line releases, start a tool with the -h or --help option to see the command line help text, which includes the version. The versions correspond to releases as listed in the changelog.

For IDE releases, there are multiple ways to find out which version of a toolset you have currently installed:

  • Via the option dialogs of the various tools.
  • Via the command line option, in a ToolDef script.
  • Via the Eclipse About Eclipse dialog.

Most of the tools of our toolset can be started in a way that shows the option dialog for that tool. All option dialogs for our tools have a Help category. By clicking on that category, the help text for that tool is shown. The help text includes the version of the tool that you are using. The versions correspond to releases as listed in the changelog.

If you start an application using a ToolDef script, you can specify command line arguments in the script as well. So, similar to command line releases, start a tool with the -h or --help option to see the command line help text, which includes the version. The versions correspond to releases as listed in the changelog.

The Eclipse About Eclipse dialog can be opened via the Help menu of Eclipse. The dialog has an Installation Details button, that opens the Eclipse Installation Details dialog. In this dialog, the Installed Software tab shows all the installed software, including the Systems Engineering toolsets. The versions as listed in the Version column include the timestamp of the release. You can match such timestamps against the dates of the releases as listed in the changelog. However, the information in the changelog may not be unique enough to match to a specific timestamp, in case multiple releases were created on the same day.
