#Configuring Graphical Rendering
Note that diagram rendering is optional. If you don’t require the feature, these steps are not needed.
If you don’t have it yet, download and install Graphviz for your platform.
Note to Windows users: you might need to download and install the “Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86)” as mentioned in the Graphviz for Windows download page. From user reports, it seems XP usually requires that package to be installed, while Vista does not.
Once Graphviz is installed, you need to tell EclipseGraphviz where to find it. Open the Graphviz preference page in Eclipse and enter the location for the dot executable.
EclipseGraphviz provides an “Image Viewer” view that will show a rendered class diagram whenever a .uml file is selected or a TextUML Viewer editor is currently selected. To open the Image Viewer, go Window > Show view > Other… > EclipseGraphviz > Image viewer.
