Version 3.1.0 downloads

Please inform us of any bugs, issues or feature requests via our online forum.

Mac OSX

Instructions for command-line installation:

Uncompress the .zip file where you want it on your disk (no blank spaces in the directory path!), either by double-clicking it in the Finder or with unzip ccpnmr3.1.0MacOSAcademic.zip .

To start the program, open up an ordinary Mac terminal window and run bin/assign (or bin/analysisassign) in the ccpnmr3.1.0 directory. You can add the ccpnmr3.1.0/bin/ directory to your PATH, in which case you will then be able to run it just by typing assign (or analysisassign). Alternatively, create an alias in your .bash or .cshrc.

Catalina / Big Sur / Monterey Users

Until we are able to build the software as official Apple Developers (we have been fighting this admin battle for around 2 years now!), the executables will have to be removed from ‘quarantine’ before you can use them on the Catalina, Big Sur and Monterey OSXs. After extracting the compressed file, please run the following command in the directory where you have placed the ccpnmr3.1.0 directory:
sudo xattr -rd com.apple.quarantine ccpnmr3.1.0
and enter your password.
Alternatively, disable the Gatekeeper by typing:
sudo spctl –master-disable
and enter your password.
You should then be able to run Analysis without problems.

M1 Chip Users

Our tests suggest that the current version should work on both the old Intel and new Mac M1 chips. If you have any issues, please do get in touch with us at support@ccpn.ac.uk.

Remote Working

We strongly recommend that you save your project on a local disk (local to where the program is installed and running). This is because Analysis regularly writes to your project files and is currently not set up to deal with temporary breaks in the connection. If you are writing to a remote disk, you could easily end up with your project in a compromised state which will make it unreadable later. However, if your spectrum files (which are generally what take up a lot of disk space) are on a remote disk/server, then that is fine. Analysis only has to read these files and so there shouldn’t be any issues.
This obviously does not stop you from logging into a machine using software such as VNC or TeamViewer to run the program remotely. In that case only the graphics are being relayed and the program installation and project can still be on the same disk.

Linux

Instructions for command-line installation:

Uncompress the .zip file where you want it on your disk (no blank spaces in the directory path!), either in a file browser, or on the command with unzip ccpnmr3.1.0CentOS7Academic.zip.tgz.

To run the program, open a terminal window and type bin/assign (or bin/analysisassign) in the ccpnmr3.1.0 directory. You can add the ccpnmr3.1.0/bin/ directory to your PATH, in which case you will then be able to run it just by typing assign (or analysisassign). Alternatively, create an alias in your .bash or .cshrc.

The above distributions may also work for some other flavours of Linux (please let us know if they do!). If they do not work for a particular Linux variant, please contact us to see if we can work with you to get a distribution ready.

In the unusual event that you get the following error message (or very similar) on CentOS7:
error while loading shared libraries: libXss.so.1
then please run the following command from a terminal window:
yum install libXScrnSaver
to install the missing dependencies.

Windows 10

Instructions for installation and start-up:

Unzip the file (this may be quite a slow process, particularly if you have Avast or similar anti-virus software installed). Then go to the ccpnmr3.1.0/bat directory and double-click on update.bat to install any recent patches and other updates. Once the updates are complete, double-click on assign.bat to start the program. The first time you start the program it may take a while till the main window opens, as all the fonts need to be built.

We recommend running the program on a 64-bit computer with minimum i5 processor. The program may be slow to start up, but should then run okay. You can improve the performance by installing the program on a solid state drive (SSD).

Windows 11

Feedback from users suggests that although the Windows 10 version does run on Windows 11, it can cause some errors or sudden crashes. Until we manage to create a bespoke Window 11 version, we suggest you proceed with caution and keep the auto-backup on.
