December 14, 2017
There are not changes in the design files, only the instruction manuals and file structure.
*With this update you will find designs, reports, sessions in the same place – Documents\BioExplorer.
*Instructional documents, drivers, etc. will be in the same place – Documents\Brain-Trainer\Help.
*Brain-Trainer tools like TQ7.5, graphing files, Subj Assess will be in Documents\Brain-Trainer. This is a change from before as they were in different places. Now they can all be found in a single location.
*In order that we may pre-load flash and audio files into designs for your convenience, flash and audio files will be in C:\Program Files (x86)\BioExplorer\Flash and C:\Program Files (x86)\BioExplorer\Media. Most users will not notice this. They were previously in C:\Program Files (x86)\BioExplorer, not inside folders.
