Klocwork Initial Setup

Bob Dean
Principle Engineer with 501-1,000 employees
The setup has always been pretty much the same. Although, I have had one longstanding ticket that I have had open forever, from either Klocwork 8 or Klocwork 9 when I put in the ticket. I have always told them that the setup should not be installed on the applications as a service on the Windows side. Guess what? If you tell it not to install as a service, when you reboot your computer after you do all your installs, it is set up as a service. Then, you have to go and manually remove it. If I request it not to be installed as a service, don't install it as a service automatically. The latest version of Klocwork is still setting it up this way. It is still installing Klocwork and all of its programs, the database, the license manager, and the analyzer as a service. It starts up every single time that you fire up your computer, even though I have told it not to during setup. View full review »

The initial setup is quite straightforward and the configuration from the client-side is also simple. The more difficult part aspect relates to the definition of the rule sets. For instance, if we want to compare a list of rule sets coming from external sources other than Klocwork we don't have native tools. We need to bring the profile list from Microsoft or from another static analysis tool or measuring tool and embed it inside Klocwork. The profiles need to be merged using Excel or something similar.

It has a straightforward setup from my scenario. Just installing a few .exe files. Not much complexity is involved in this. View full review »
