Demo 2The Solutions Console main menu

The console is displayed when you launch it from the Gen plug-in menu.

The console uses a tree view containing the following sections:

  • My Favorites – the installed plug-ins that you have promoted to this section.
  • Installed Plug-ins – plug-ins that have been installed into the Solutions Console
  • Other Solutions – other plug-ins available from QAT

You can quickly launch a plug-in by double-clicking on the plug-in in either the My Favorites or Installed Plug-ins section.

The console contains an optional Live Update feature that will refresh the list of available plug-ins. This ensures that the console is always up to date. Live Update can be configured to execute automatically or on demand by pressing the Live Update button on the toolbar.

If you have installed plug-ins into the Gen menu, these can be imported to the Installed Plug-ins section using the Import button. Plug-ins installed into the console can also be exported to the Gen Plug-in menu using the Export button.

Each plug-in has its own page that provides an overview of the functionality, details on the latest version, vendor and links to the vendor’s website from where you can obtain further details and also obtain the plug-in software.

Common Support Questions

The Solutions Console requires the Gen plug-in facility and will work with CA Gen 6.5 and above.
Make sure that you have started the toolset with the /Automation parameter, i.e. toolset.exe /Automation for Gen 7 and coolgen.exe /Automation for Gen 6.5
One possible cause is that the Gen runtime file wru650n.dll is not correctly registered. If you did not have the gen runtimes registered on your workstation, the Console Setup program will have registered wru650n.dll from the GenRtm directory. Either re-register your copy of the Gen runtime or register the GenRtmwru650n.dll using regsvr32.exe.
