MPS 2020.1 Help

Run MPS for the first time

When you run MPS for the first time, some steps are required to complete the installation, customize your instance, and start working with the IDE.

How to run

You can use the Toolbox App to run any JetBrains product. In case of a standalone installation, running MPS depends on the operating system:

  • Find MPS in the Start menu or use the desktop shortcut, if it was created during installation. You can also run %winlauncher% in the installation directory under bin.

  • Run the MPS app in the Applications directory, from Launchpad, or from Spotlight.

  • Run the %linlauncher% shell script in the installation directory under bin. You can also use the desktop shortcut, if it was created during installation.
