Creating the simulation target

To test with the Simulator, you must have a device profile that represents the device under test. After creating or acquiring the device profile, use the Target Manager to create a simulation target. See the Tools Reference for information on using the Target Manager.

Install the interrogation agent to the target

To run Interrogator, the interrogation agent needs to be installed to the target. This is done using the Target Manager.
