NetIQ Validator comes with launch scripts for all supported platforms
(Linux/Mac/Windows) but those are console mode shell scripts and offer not much
comfort. The Launcher for NetIQ Validator is a drop-in alternative for the
standard Windows script "runValidator.bat" that replaces the validator server
console windows with a tray menu icon and (by default) auto-launches the
validator client page. From the tray menu you can

- show/hide the server console
- open the validator client webpage
- open the validator runner webpage (with Validator 1.3+ only)
- open the validator scheduler webpage (with Validator 1.4 only)
- customize the tests folder
- disable autostart of the validator client
- choose your preferred browser
- enforce use of your custom license file
- enable debug mode

To install, just copy validator.exe into the same folder where you find
runValidator.bat and run it. If you change any of the preferences from the
default values, they will be saved to a validator.ini file in the same folder.

If you buy a validator license you'll receive a license.dat file that you need
to copy into the config subfolder of your validator install. Since the
validator download comes with an evaluation license file of the same name this
will most likely overwrite your copy during an update. So simply keep your
custom license somewhere in a safe place outside the install folder and point
the Launcher to it - it will copy the license.dat into the right place on the

This launcher has been developed for and tested with NetIQ Validator release
versions 1.1 through 1.4.
