For quick evaluation, we provide a virtual machine (VM) containing the latest i2b2 build and all IDRT tools preconfigured with examples files.
The VM needs VMware Player 7.1 (free for personal use) or VMware Workstation 11 or higher to run. It is preconfigured for using 4 GB RAM, 2 CPU cores and 50 GB hard drive space. If errors occur during start, you may want to adjust the resource settings.
The VM is based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64-bit operating system. After booting or rebooting the VM, i2b2 is already started as well as the IMT.
