To open Talend Studio for the first time, complete the following:

  1. Uncompress the Talend Studio zip file and, in the folder, double-click the executable file corresponding to your operating system.


    The Studio zip archive contains binaries for several platforms including Mac OS X and Linux/Unix.

  2. In the [User License Agreement] dialog box that opens, read and accept the terms of the end user license agreement to proceed.

  3. In the Talend Studio login window, select an option to define your project that will hold all Jobs and Business models designed in the Studio.


    This login window appears only when the Studio is started for the first time. When you launch the Studio again, the normal login window opens, which provides one more option, a connection list box, for subscription-based users to select a repository connection when launching the Studio.

    If you plan to use the same repository connection and / or project at your next Studio launch, you can skip the login window to speed up Studio launch by clearing the Always ask me at startup check box. Then, if you want to see the login window again, go to the menu Window > Preferences to open the [Preferences] window, select Talend, and select the Always show project dialog at startup check box.

    • Select Create a new project, specify a project name and click Finish to create a new project. For more information, see How to create a project.

    • Select Import a demo project and click Finish to import a demo project that includes numerous samples of ready-to-use Jobs. This Demo project can help you understand the functionalities of different Talend components. For more information, see How to import a demo project.

    • Select Import an existing project and click Finish to import an existing projects. For more information, see your Talend Studio User Guide.

    • If you want to modify the default repository connection, click Manage Connections to set up your connection before setting up a project. For further information about connecting to a repository, see How to access a Repository.

    As the purpose of this procedure is to create a new project, select Create a new project, fill in a project name in the text field, and click Finish.

  4. Depending on the Studio product you are using, you will see either of the following:

    • A Quick Tour to Talend Studio. Click Next to go the next slide of the presentation, or click Close to end the presentation and display the main window of your Talend Studio.

      This presentation automatically starts at the Studio initial launch. To open it manually later, go to Help > Studio Quick Tour from the Studio menu bar.

    • The [Welcome] window, which provides direct links to Demo projects, user documentation, tutorials, Talend Community, Talend on-demand training and Talend latest news. Click Start now! to open Talend Studio main window, which displays a page that provides useful tips for beginners on how to get started with the Studio. Clicking an underlined link brings you to the corresponding tab view or opens the corresponding dialog box.

    When the [Additional Talend Packages] wizard opens, install additional packages such as language packs if needed. For more information, see the section about installing additional packages in the Talend Installation and Upgrade Guide.

  5. You can skip this installation step and close the wizard by clicking Cancel.

    This wizard appears each time you launch the studio if any additional package is available for installation unless you select the Do not show this again check box. You can also display this wizard by selecting Help > Install Additional Packages from the menu bar.
