After downloading the zip, extracting its contents creates a MRQuantif directory which is the main directory of the software.
The software starts with a double-click on MRQuantif.jar if you have java 8 installed. Otherwise, and only on PC, by double-clicking MRQuantif.bat. This windows command file will look for if there is a jave 8 in the program directories or use java 8 otherwise in an adjacent directory called i>jre. You can download this directory from the site in the download section or by ou clicking here. This download retrieves a zip file containing the directory i>jre to set up
At launch, MRQuantif seeks to connect to the internet. It is advisable to allow it to cross the firewall. If it fails to connect you will have: Otherwise the message will be variable depending on the actions selected in the configuration:
Indeed the internet connection is useful so that the software can:
At launch, MRQuantif opens a single window that contains three areas:
Au lancement, MRQuantif ouvre une fenêtre unique qui contient trois zones :
If there are no images in the default import directory, the software proposes to use the example provided and present in the sample directory.
As indicated in the following message, you will be guided by the messages at the bottom of the window.
If there is a new version available, and if you are connected with the update enabled, you will see, a few seconds after the launch, a modal window containing information about the changes made in the new version. Unless there is a major correction needed to continue using the software, you may decide whether to load this new version. The loading time is short and is done in the background without slowing down or disrupting your use. The replacement of the version will be done when closing the software, without lengthening it. The following use will be done with the new version. The replaced version is kept in history in a MRQuantif_previous_version directory. So in case of difficulty you can easily return to the previous version. Possibly there is also the penultimate version in the directory MRQuantif_older_version. Only the last two versions are kept.
How does it work? If you have started downloading an update a MRQuantif_update.zip file is uploaded in the background. It is then immediately decompressed into an Update directory. The MRQuantif_update.zip file is deleted. When you quit MRQuantif it tests the presence of a file MRQuantif_update.zip and then launches the software Updater.jar (possibly via Updater.bat under windows). This installs the update by moving the new files and directories in the directory Update to the main directory while moving the old versions of these files into the directory MRQuantif_previous_version. Of course the old directory MRQuantif_previous_version a previously renamed MRQuantif_older_version. If at the next launch of the software there is still an Update directory the operation resumes ... and if it continues you just delete the directory Update, warn me and do not resume the update until the correction has not been brought. But normally this should never happen...
You must then check for yourself the presence of a new version on the website in the Download section. Download the zip, name the MRQuantif_update.zip and put it in the MRQuantif main directory at the same level as MRQuantif.jar. The update will be implemented automatically at the next closing of the software. You can also manually replace the files, but this manual operation does not support the version history.
Do not touch the my_data and my_config directories that contain your data and preferences. The update does not affect this because these directories are created the first time you boot, and they do not exist in the installation or update zips. These two directories are to save by yourself even if you want to secure them. The internet export option is an additional security but is not contractual.
