The bcpToolkit setup is delivered as an executable and accepts the standard windows installer arguments documented here.
To accept the products EULA when starting the setup in silent mode pass the ACCEPT_EULA=1 argument.

bcpToolkit is installed in the following locations:

  • All program libraries and executable files are placed in C:\Program Files\coolOrange\bcpToolkit
  • All powerShell libraries are placed in C:\Program Files\coolOrange\Modules\bcpToolkit

Following shared libraries are installed in GAC:

  • bcpDevKit.dll
  • coolOrange.Logging.dll

Following shortcuts are added in the start menu:

  • bcpViewer - Starts the bcpViewer application
  • bcpToolkit Console - Opens the powershell Console and loads the bcpToolkit module
  • bcpToolkit Information - Opens the About dialog with product related information
  • bcpToolkit License Information - Opens the License Information dialog to activate the product
  • bcpToolkit Logs - Opens the log file location

To install a newer version of bcpToolkit execute the setup file of the new version. This will automatically update the files in the existing installation.

When upgrading from bcpChecker versions earlier than 17.0 (e.g. bcpChecker 2015 or 2016) we recommend uninstalling the old bcpChecker version before upgrading

In case you want to remove bcpToolkit from your computer you can:

  • Execute the setup file again. This will give you the option to repair or remove bcpToolkit. Click on “Remove” to uninstall the program.
  • Go to “Control Panel - Programs and Features”, find “coolOrange bcpToolkit” and run “Uninstall”.
