2014.4 - SDK - Can bootgen be used without the SDK install?


I want to use the bootgen without installing the SDK tools.

Is this possible?


Yes, this can be copied locally and used without any dependencies on Windows.


However, in Linux there is a dependency on the libstdc++.so libraries, which are shipped with SDK.

You can work around this by copying the library to a particular path and adding it to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH as well using the following command:

setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH <path_to_library>
