Installing Rhapsody with Cygwin/gcc for Executable MBSE

If you don't install Rational Rhapsody in the right way then you might be missing out on a lot of its capabilities. If you want to try using Rhapsody's powerful simulation capabilities for Executable MBSE then it's more important than ever to get it installed right.

These are the instructions that I provide for setting up Rhapsody with the Cygwin gcc compiler for my Mastering MBSE with OMG SysML and IBM Rational Rhapsody and Executable MBSE training and consulting. The main thing to consider is that you can save an awfully large amount of disk space and time by just installing the small part of the compiler tool chain you need.

The training uses the Rhapsody Designer for Systems Engineers Edition. However, as the slides suggest we can pretty much install all the Editions and then control the Editions we use using shortcuts.


  1. Hey, great job! I put my hand on Rhapsody in 2014. I was experiencing a nightmare when making the model compiled and run. At the end someone told me to add 4 files (g++-core, g++-gcc, gdb and make) when installing cygwin. I saw you don't add g++-core. Is it not necessary?

  2. Very useful post. This is my first time i visit here. I found so many interesting stuff in your blog especially its discussion. Really its great article. Keep it up. тренинговый портал

  3. Flawless and legendary blog, Full of sublime and virtuosic words.

  4. Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store just like Cool Earth day Activities . I'd prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don't mind. Naturally, I'll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
