TSTool‎ > ‎


TSTool downloads are available for current and previous versions of the software.  Development versions made available on this website typically have some features that are works in progress and/or which are being reviewed by the developer/user community.  Software products occasionally may be undergoing major rework and in such cases beta releases are made to get feedback about prototype design and functionality.

TSTool installs into a versioned folder.  Consequently, it is possible to install several versions of TSTool to allow for comparison and testing, and plan for migration.  See the TSTool Quick Start Guide.  TSTool documentation is available under the "doc" folder of the installation and the documentation for the most recent release is available here:  User Manual | Command Reference | Datastore Reference.  See information below the following table specific to Windows and Linux installation.  If an error results while installing or starting TSTool, see: Troubleshoot TSTool Software Install.

For Windows:

Run the installer program to install, accepting the default installation settings.  If the State of Colorado's HydroBase is installed on the local computer, it will be accessible by default with no further configuration.  If HydroBase is available on a server machine or another computer, then specify that server in the last step of the installation (e.g., "local,ServerName\CDSS" for the server names and "HydroBase" as the default HydroBase name).  If HydroBase is not available, then do not perform the HydroBase configuration at the end of the installation and use "Tools...Options" in TSTool to disable the HydroBase input type, which subsequently will skip the HydroBase login dialog when TSTool is run.

For Linux:

Use a command like "tar -xzvf TSTool*.tar.gz" to install TSTool.  The files will install in a TSTool-Version folder under the current folder.  For example, install under /opt.  Run TSTool using the bin/tstool script under the install.  If desired, create a symbolic link to this file /usr/local/bin/tstool or similar.  If the State of Colorado's HydroBase is not available on the system, use "Tools...Options" in TSTool to disable the HydroBase input type, which subsequently will skip the HydroBase login dialog when TSTool is run.

TSTool configuration information is described in the "Installation and Configuration" appendix and datastore appendices.
