PyroSim 2007.1.1024 RC5 Release Notes.

Changes since 2007.1.1012 RC4 include:

  • Support for 64-bit Microsoft Windows XP and Vista systems. We have upgraded the licensing library to support 64-bit architectures. Please note that the bundled version of FDS is still 32-bit. Also, integrated parallel execution with MPI does not yet work on 64-bit systems.
  • The installer will now work properly on systems that do not have Microsoft .NET 2.0 installed. This library is downloaded automatically (if needed) during the install process (requires Internet connection).
  • The installer will no longer fail when the CrypKey service cannot be started. Users will still have to run SETUP_EX.exe manually in this case.
  • Now Smokeview 5.0.1 is included in the PyroSim installer. This was incorrectly noted in the RC4 notes.
  • Updated users manual chapters: Working with Files, Output Controls, Surfaces, and Materials.
  • Added placeholder chapters for the following items: Reactions, Sprinklers, Measurement Devices, and Simulation Parameters. These represent the remaining work items on the users manual.
  • Other minor changes to the users manual (e.g. updated the address on the title page).
  • Changed the label on the heater/cooler surface editor from “Heat Release” to “Temperature.”
