How to install the ANDATA software?

Prerequisite

Following three issues are necessary for the installation of the ANDATA software:

  1. a file of the relevant software distribution from the ANDATA software
  2. a valid license file
  3. an according MATLAB* installation

 

Delivery of the Software Distribution

The software normally comes in from of a file, which can be downloaded from the ANDATA-Website. This requires an account for login at https://www.andata.at/en/login.html.

Account data for regsitration are to be obtained on request from support@andata.at.

After successful login a new submenu for Downloads becomes available in the Support section of the ANDATA website. There the according versions can be downloaded then.

In principle the distribution files come in form of

  • an exe file for Windows users or
  • a zip file for Linux users or individual expert installation

 

License File

A license file is normally delivered by ANDATA per email. Alternatively it can come from the own system administrator, who maintains the installation.

 

MATLAB Installation

Before installing the ANDATA software an according version of MATLAB* already needs to be installed and available. Further details can be found in minimum requirements for ANDATA software.

 

Installation with EXE File

The installation of the software with the exe file is carried out by following steps:

  1. Download of the distribution in form of the exe-file
  2. Execution of that exe-file (e.g. by double clicking the file)
  3. Selection of the desired installation directory
  4. Selection of a valid license file
  5. Selection of the entry into startup.m
  6. Start of MATLAB*
  7. Start of the according tool within MATLAB* (e.g. By typing stipulator)

Installation of a new version into the directory of an old version should be avoided. Each version should reside in a separate directory.

 

Installation with ZIP File

The installation of the software with the zip-file is carried out by following steps:

  1. Downloading the distribution in the zip format from
  2. Extraction of the zip-file into an empty, temporary directory
  3. Execution of the install.m script in the temporary directory
    • Double clicking install.m
    • Starting MATLAB*, moving to the temporary directory, starting install.m
  4. Selection of the desired installation directory
  5. Selection of a valid license file
  6. Selection about the type of entry in the MATLAB* startup.m
  7. Restart of MATLAB*
  8. Start of the particular tool (e.g. by entering stipulator in the MATLAB workspace)

Installation of a new version into the directory of an old version should be avoided. Each version should reside in a separate directory.
