How to: Install SPCAF

Install SPCAF

Note: Before the installation, you have to close all running instances of Visual Studio. The setup cannot proceed if Visual Studio is running. Also, make sure that your system meets the system requirements.

Run setup application (e.g. "SPCAF.Setup.msi") and follow the instructions.

Accept the End User License Agreement (EULA)

In order to proceed you need to accept the end user license agreement.

Enter License Key

SPCAF requires a valid license. The license is saved in a license file.
This license file is stored in the user local AppData directory in file 'License.lic'. The license key is checked during each analysis.

In order to try out SPCAF, you can request a trial license key by clicking "Request Trial".

Enter your license key into the text box and proceed with the installation.

Note: The entered license key will not be validated during installation. You can proceed with installation, but before using SPCAF you need to save your License.lic manually in the installation directory of SPCAF.

Select preferred Components

Decide which components of SPCAF you want to install.

Note: Not all 3rd party analyzer integration is activated by default as some like SPDisposeCheck or JSHint are now obsolete because SPCAF has its own implementation of these rules.

The TFS/VSOnline Team Build integration works only with an SPCAF Quality Gate license or the trial key.

Installation

The installer will now install all selected components, create entries in the start menu and register SPCAF in Visual Studio.

Finish

After finishing the installation you can start Visual Studio and can run SPCAF for your SharePoint projects or alternatively execute the SPCAF standalone application.
