Run the IDE in administrative mode

To use the Software Updates Manager to install and update plug-ins in the IDE, you must run the IDE in administrative mode.

To run the IDE in administrative mode:

  1. Log in as root on Linux and Mac OS X, or as a user who has system-administrator privileges on Windows.
  2. Run the QNX Momentics IDE in administrative mode:
    • In a Windows operating system, open a command prompt window, change to your installation directory, and run the batch file called bbndk_admin.bat.
    • In a Linux or Mac OS X operating system, open a terminal window, change to your installation directory, and run the file called bbndk_admin.command.
