Top  Previous  Next

System requirements:

1.A PC running Windows XP or later (It is likely that CAP 5 will run under older versions of Windows, but we regret that we cannot guarantee this).
2.50 MB of spare hard disk space
3.INTERNET CONNECTION FOR THE VIDEO GUIDES

 

CAP does not limit the size of your data set, however your hardware will. To use CAP 5 with very large data sets (1000 or more species or samples) you will need a fast modern machine with 1 GB memory or more to perform such calculations quickly. For more information, see Maximum size of the data set.

 

Older versions of CAP:

If you already have an old version of CAP installed on your computer, it is not necessary to remove it before installing CAP 5, since the new version will be installed to a different location.

 

CD Installation:

1.Place the CAP CD in your CD drive: the installation process should begin automatically - follow the on-screen instructions.
2.If the CD does not auto-play, browse the CD in Windows Explorer or My Documents and click file named Setup.exe in the root directory.
3.When installation is complete, there will be a CAP 5 entry under Start: Programs. An uninstall facility will also be created, in case you wish to remove the program,  and a Desktop shortcut.

 

Download Installation:

1.Run the downloaded exe file: the installation process should begin automatically - follow the on-screen instructions.
2.When installation is complete, there will be a CAP 5 entry under Start: Programs. An uninstall facility will also be created, in case you wish to remove the program,  and a Desktop shortcut.
