Software Installation – Windows (XP or later)
Installing SimPHY on windows is like a cakewalk. Just download native windows installer and double click to run (it may ask permission, so allow it to continue). Now follow instructions on wizard to complete installation.
Software Installation – -Mac OS X (10.7 or later)
To install SimPHY on mac, download the dmg file and double click it to mount (it may ask to accept terms and conditions, so accept to continue). Now you will see mounted SimPHY ready to install app. Double Click this icon to open window like below. Drag and drop simphy icon to application folder to complete installation.
Software Installation – Linux x32 or x64 (Fedora 25/Ubuntu 12 or newer)
There is no gui installer available for linux. SimPHY is distrusted as tar archive for linux platform.
Download archive for your linux platform(32bit or 64bit) and extract it on desktop( or any location you want). Before you can run simphy, you need to make it executable. This is a Linux security feature. There are two main ways to make an it executable:
1. On the command line
- Open Terminal: Ctrl+Shift+T or Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal
- Make simphy file excutable
sudo chmod +x simphy
Replace your file’s name into “filename”
- Enter your password. The file is now executable.
2. With the GUI
- Right Click on the file and select Properties.
- Select the Permission tab.
- Check “Allow executing file as program.”
- Your file will have a different icon and now become executable.
Note: Double click on the file does not necessarily execute the file. You may have to use terminal.
Software Installation -Generic Java App (Installed JRE 1.6 or later)
Use this version only if you have java installed since it does not have an installation program. To use it, you must be sufficiently expert to install a Java program yourself.
Download and extract archive, now execute (by double clicking) simphy.jar to run app, it should work fine in most cases. If it does’t run try running it with command
java -jar simphy.jar in Terminal to start app.
