Install Project Glidepath
To install the Project Glidepath Software Factory you need to follow these steps:
  • Run the 2 MSI installers enclosed in the zip file in this order
  • Note: Part of the ProjectGlidepathSetup process gives you the opportunity to change the SQL Server 2005 connection string. By default the string is configured to point to a default named instance (.\SQLExpress) of SQL Server 2005 Express edition. You can change the string to point to any instance of any edition of SQL Server 2005. Some versions of SQL Server 2005 do not support the "User Instance=True" option so you may need to remove that from the end of the connection string.
  • Start Visual Studio
  • Create a new project using the Glidepath Software Factory project type which is found under the Guidance Packages node in the project type tree.
  • Right click on the "_Viewpoints" project and select Update...
  • When the Update Dialog appears, click on the Update from RSS Feeds button. When you do this the Project Glidepath Software Factory will retrieve the remainder of the installation data from this website via the primary RSS feed.
