Below is a list of instructions for the installation of the device drivers and applications used for microsensor and imaging measurements.
To be able to use the data acquisition (DAQ) devices from National Instruments (NI), you need to install the drivers before you connect the device to the computer.
NI provides an application called Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) using which the function of the installed DAQ device can be checked. The shortcut to this application is typically available on the desktop after the NIDAQ drivers installation.
1. For matlib6: Download mglinstaller.exe from here, and execute it. During installation, specify the directory to which you want to install the libraries. Note the name of this directory (we assume that it is c:\Programs\matlib).
Note: When executing programs requiring these libraries, it will be necessary to add this directory to the PATH variable of your system. This can be done directly by modifying the system PATH variable, if you have access rights to do so. If you don't, you can do it by a command line approach right before the call to the program. This can be done using a BATCH file, such as one below, used for execution of calfluxrate (see below):
2. For matlib7: Download MCRInstaller.exe from here, and execute it. During installation, specify the directory to which you want to install the libraries.
It is assumed that the files required for the micro-profile measurements will be installed in c:\Programs\m-Profiler, referred below as DIR. The 'vX' string below indicates the version of the file, which may change if the program is updated.
As mpr-plotter is an application written in Scilab, you need to download and install Scilab first. Scilab can be downloaded for free from http://www.scilab.org. You can also download it from here: \\tux\microsen\Lubos\programs\scilab\.
As L@MP is an application written in Matlab, you need to have Matlab installed on your computer.
Fit-profile is a standalone application written in Matlab. Thus, to be able to run it, you need to install Matlab runtime libraries first. Follow these instructions to do so.
fit-profile.batin the command prompt (cmd).
