Downloading the Code
There are two ways to obtain the code for the environment:
1.Clone the GIT repository.
2.Download the code in a ZIP file.
Cloning the GIT Repository
1.Ensure that you have GIT for Windows command line tools installed.
2.Open a Windows command prompt and move to the folder where you would like to download the code (a new sub-folder will be created automatically when you clone the repository).
3.Execute the following GIT command: git clone https://github.com/SteveIves/SqlReplicationIoHooks.git
Downloading the Code in a ZIP File
1.Use a web browser and go to https://github.com/SteveIves/SqlReplicationIoHooks
2.Click the green Clone or Download button ans select Download Zip.
3.Extract the zip fine in your chosen location.
Setting up the Environment
After obtaining the code there is a one-time setup step that you will need to follow. The commands for this are in a batch file named setup.bat that you will find in the root folder of the development environment. Open a command prompt, go to the root folder and execute the batch file. The batch file does the following things:
1.Loads the repository schema into a repository database in the RPS folder.
2.Loads two sample ISAM files in the DAT folder.
3.Creates the replicator queue ISAM file in the DAT folder.
