Title: About the installation of dssr-basic windows version and linux version
Post by: chenlong on July 28, 2021, 04:56:07 am
Hello! I would like to share with you some recent issues regarding the use of DSSR. First of all, thank you for your great contributions to DSSR and X3DNA, which have helped many scholars and are free for academic institutions to use. My question is as follows:
1. After I got the academic license through Columbia University, I downloaded two versions of dssr-basic for linux and windows. But the windows version of the exe installation package can't open all the time. I have tried it on several computers with win7 and win10, but it doesn't work, so I would like to ask Dr. Lu why.
2. The files in the linux installation package are not in tar.gz format. I don't know how to install it. Could you please tell me. Or is there an installation method I haven't found? I did find it for a long time. So please let me know, thank you very much.  :D


Best wishes

This is the first time I've heard of problems installing DSSR on Windows and Linux.

I do not understand what you mean by "But the windows version of the exe installation package can't open all the time." Does it work sometime? If so, when and under what condition? What do you mean by "it doesn't work"? Please provide screenshots to illustrate unambiguously the issues you experienced.

Then what format do you have from CTV download set? How long have you tried to find any other installation format?

It is fashionable these days to discuss the reproducibility of scientific publications. It's also crucial to ask questions in a consistent manner.

Best regards,
