Configuring the Integration with Zend Studio

The following procedure describes how to configure the integration with Zend Studio. The integration enables users to extend Zend Guard with the rich editing features included in the Zend Studio. This provides users with a seamless workflow for fixing and modifying code through Zend Guard. This enables you to open files and fix errors in Zend Studio, seamlessly.

Before configuring the integration make sure you have both Zend Guard and Zend Studio installed on the same machine. It is also useful to already know the location of the Zend Studio's installation directory before setting-up the integration.


Settings have to be configured in both applications in order to successfully start the integration between Zend Studio and Zend Guard.
