(G)Confirmation of execution

For execution confirmation, execute rtls command of rtshell command group and test whether rtshell is correctly installed. First, start the OpenRTM-aist name service and start ConsoleIn. After starting the component, start the Windows command prompt.

Execute the following command at the command prompt.

  set RTCTREE_NAMESERVERS=127.0.0.1
  rtls -R

The first line sets environment variables. "RTCTREE_NAMESERVERS" is a variable used by rtshell's support library rtctree, and specifies the name server seen by rtshell. The second line shows the components registered in all name servers. In the case of success, it is displayed as follows.

(G)In case it does not move

If the command can not be found, there is a possibility that PATH is not set. Adding two paths like the following to the PATH environment variable will work. (An example is when Python 2.6 is installed.)

  C:\Python26
  C:\Python26\Scripts
