Installing the Windows Code Analysis Framework and DevPartner Analytics

Before you can perform this task, make sure that Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 is installed on the machine where the Code Analysis Framework will be installed (the machine that hosts the application to test). Older or newer versions of Microsoft .NET Framework will not work!

  1. Go to the machine that hosts the application to test.
  2. Open Silk Central.
  3. Go to Help > Tools and click Windows Code Analysis Framework. This will prompt a download of CAFramework.exe. CAFramework.exe includes the installation for the Code Analysis Framework and the DevPartner Analytics package.
    Note: Multiple execution servers running tests against the same Code Analysis Framework at the same time is not supported.
  4. Double click the download file to start the installation. Walk-through the installation of the Windows Code Analysis Framework. At the end of the installation, you will be prompted to install DevPartner Analytics. Ensure that the DevPartner Analytics Installation check box is checked on the appropriate installation screen and install this component. At the end of this installation, all required files are installed and the proper service is started. The name of the service is Silk Central Code Analysis Service.
