How do I set up Igor 6 on my MFP3D computer?


  • How do I setup Igor on my computer?

    We are currently only testing our software on windows 7.
    You should avoid upgrading your operating system to windows 10 until we have time to test and fix the problems.

    1. Install Igor 6.
      in c:\Asylum\Igor Pro Folder\ or similar, our software will not work correctly in Win 7 Program files folders, which is the default location to install Igor.
      You can download the igor installer from wavemetrics.
    2. Download the MFP3D software. For current version go here.
    3. Run the MFP3D installer, which will choose the folder you installed Igor 6 to in step 2.
    4. You are ready to run.

  • Running Copies of the Igor Pro / AR Software
    by Bemis
    There are typically two main reasons to make a copy of the Igor Pro / AR Software, and they are slightly different.
    1. You want to try out some new MFP3D code. There is a new feature that is in the unstable code that you want to try out, but it is the new code. There are going to be bugs, and so you want to be able to go back quickly, and you don't want other people in the lab to have to deal with the new bugs. This is by far the most common reason, and the easier way to make a Igor
