Install Options and System Requirements

Top  Previous  Next


Under Windows Vista and Windows 7 the standard installation folder for programs 'C:\Programs\...' is protected and 'repairs' changes after each reboot.  Therefore the default location for the installation of Datagraph-med is set to the root directory of your hard drive 'C:\Datagraph-med 4.30'.  You may change the installation folder, but please note that every user must have full read/write permissions to both folders, the front end and the folder containing your data file.


Datagraph-med requires MS Access to be installed on your PC. MS Access is part of 'MS Office Professional', but not 'MS Office Standard' or 'MS Office Home' for example. In such cases you must install Datagraph-med together with a Runtime version of MS Access. The Runtime version must fit to your local MS Office version. German and English Runtime versions for Office 2003, 2007 and 2010 are part of the installation CD. More local language versions can be found on the Microsoft website.


Datagraph uses regression analysis functions of MS Excel and some other functions will not be available if you do not have MS Excel installed on your PC. So we recommend to have MS Excel installed.


Datagraph-med is complied using Microsoft Visual Basic components - these components may differ depending on the service pack version of your Office Suite. For this reason we recommend to use Microsoft Update and make sure the latest service release is installed before the installation of Datagraph-med.
