Installing CDP Studio
Simply download and run the latest version of the CDP Studio installer, and follow the on-screen instructions. You can safely use the default options in the installer.
The frameworks selected in the installer process will be downloaded and installed. The framework contains a collection of libraries and tools that is required to be able to compile and deploy a CDP application to a specific system and operating system. During installation, it will run through a dialogue giving you options for which CDP Studio frameworks to download. The framework supporting your development computer is pre-selected (see example screenshot to the right). Libraries and tools can also be downloaded later using the Package Manager.
Our systems are free for trial, for home users and students (non-commercial use).
The trial version of CDP Studio is fully featured, except for certain add-ons, and allows you to evaluate the software.
Getting started with CDP Studio
CDP Studio includes a number of examples, step-by-step and video tutorial covering a range of topics from your first project to how to use specific features.
A recommendation is to step through the 4 introduction examples as these take you through the most important steps and explain important concepts. The first 3 examples are also available as step-by-step tutorials.
The Tank Control Tutorial in the example section is a combined example with source code and a step-by-step tutorial. It is a more comprehensive project compared to the 4 introduction examples.
The step-by-step tutorials explain how to setup different industry protocols, use HW devices and specific features. Several video tutorials are available, and these can also be found in our YouTube channel.
There are also “How to ….” tutorials that may be useful to read.
The examples and tutorials are found in the Welcome mode.
We have made a selection of tutorial videos that will help you in getting started with CDP Studio.
