Instructions for running mTPIcompare.exe, version 2.0.7
Tested on: Windows 7 (only)
1)Open a command window in the directory containing mTPIcompare.exe.
Several other .DLL files should be present there also and are
required at runtime.
2) Type: mTPIcompare.exe MyInputData2.txt.cs <enter>
3) The program should run and print its output to the command window.
The program reads its input from a file. The default supplied file is
called "MyInputData2.txt.cs". You may name your input file anything
you want. You may edit this file to alter the input
data, adding scenarios as needed.
Note that this is a C# language source file, and requires that the
C# syntax be adhered to when editing.
In C#, comments are any characters following a double slash (//) on
a line. You should be cognizant of the semi-colons that are required
at the end of C# lines.
There is an optional command-line argument that may be specified to
omit the text labels that are printed by the program:
mTPIcompare.exe MyInputData.txt.cs -nolabels
Please note the spelling and case of "-nolabels".
You may also pipe the output to a file via this syntax:
mTPIcompare.exe MyInputData2.txt.cs > myOutputFile.txt
It should run ok on Windows XP, but it is likely that it will require the Microsoft libraries to be installed first.Try this:Youll need XP with Service Pack 3.
You can look for that by left-clicking on the Start button (lower left corner of the XP screen). When the Start menu appears, find MyComputer on the menu and right-click on it select Properties from the right-click menu.The dialog that subsequently appears will show you what version of XP you have.
You may also need to install the .NET Framework v4.0. You can get that here:http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/netframework/aa569263Please try mTPICompare.exe after you install the .NET Framework.
