Extract Plug In Installation

The Extract plug in on Linux is provided as a tarball containing the required program, support files and installation script. The general assumption is that you have already installed Qckvu3. If not, please install and license Qckvu3 first.


Untar the file into a temporary directory.
$ mkdir tmpdir
$ cd tmpdir
$ cp hierarchyExtract.e3_64.linux.v100.tar .
$ tar xvf hierarchyExtract.e3_64.linux.v100.tar

The following will be unpacked:


Before starting the install script, make sure you have the license strings needed to execute the plug-in. If your Qckvu3 is installed with node locked licensing then the strings can be entered as needed during the install.

However if Qckvu3 has been installed with a floating network license, you should send the Extract strings to your system administrator who can add them to the flexlm license file and re-read the license file.

Start the Install Script and Enter Password

 ./INSTALL [enter]
  Install Extract version 1.00? (y/n)y [enter]

The script will unpack the program files and supporting files once you have entered the installation password:

Where to Install

If qckvu3's binary directory is already in your path then the install script will identify it and give you the option to select it. If the binary directory is not in the path, you will have to type it in.

The following target directories have been found for installation:

Enter Qckvu3's executable path where extract will be installed:
