The present version is only supported on Windows 10 64 bit.
Download Aquaresp by pressing "Clone or Download" button in the top right corner of this screen.
Windows 10 - 64bit:
Step 1 - downloading Python
First run 1.vbs in the Installation folder
This downloads Python for you, the version that has been used for testing (3.7.4. - 64-bit)
Step 2 - installing Python and libraries
This initiates Python installation for you.
If this fails, open the downloaded Python (InstallPython.exe), and make sure to enable the option "Add to PATH" during the first step of installation
After Python has been installed
Double click the CheckLibraries.py in the installation folder.
This installs the libraries needed to run AquaResp 3.0 ASAP The buttons will change to green and display "OK" when libraries are installed.
####Further: We recommend setting either Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome webbrowsers as default browser in Windows. The plotting feature does not work in Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge browsers.
If this step is failing, open the command prompt (WinButton + R, write "cmd", and press enter), and run the installation commands for the specific library. The following are needed for AQ3
python -m pip install bokeh==1.3.0
python -m pip install numpy
python -m pip install scipy
python -m pip install matplotlib
python -m pip install -U wxPython
python -m pip install mcculw
Step 3 - adding Icons to your desktop
Run Create Links on Desktop.vbs (in the Aquaresp 3 main folder)
This creates icons on the desktop. You can do that manually aswell.
