Locating the Tachyon Product Pack deployment tool

This is now included in the Tachyon Platform zip file under the ProductPacks folder.

This folder holds the Tachyon.ProductPackDeploymentTool.exe (and its supporting files) used to upload the Classic and Integrated Product Packs into Tachyon.

What's in the ProductPacks folder?

The ProductPacks folder contains two directories, Classic and Integrated

  • The Classic directory holds a number of Classic Product Packs that contain Tachyon Instructions.
  • The Integrated directory holds a number of Integrated Product Packs that contain definitions for some Guaranteed State Policies, associated Fragments and Instructions. In addition a core utilities pack has been provided with common Fragments that you can use to build your own Policies.

Uploading Integrated Product Packs

After installation, Guaranteed State has no immediately available policies, you will first need to load some from the tachyonproductpacks.<version>.zip file - this can be done using the Tachyon Product Pack deployment tool.
