We also recommend to re-install the HASP driver during installation (in case you use a local dongle) to ensure that you use the latest driver version. If the message "Do you want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher to make changes to this computer?" appears during installation (User Account Control dialog), click "Yes", otherwise installation will not be performed.

The 64-bit version of BrainVoyager QX will be installed in the "Program Files/BrainVoyager" folder and the 32-bit version in the "/Program Files/BrainVoyager32" folder reflecting that the 64-bit version is considered the default (recommended) version for Windows.
System requirements
Version 2.8 of BrainVoyager QX is fully compatible with Microsoft Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. If you get an error when launching the program after installation complaining about missing DLLs ("Application failed to start - side-by-side configuration incorrect"), please download and run the Microsoft redistributable file vcredist_x86.exe (for 32-bit Windows) or vcredist_x64.exe (for 64-bit Windows). While many operations of BrainVoyager QX run with modest working memory demands, a minimum of 2 GB is required and 4 GB recommended. To benefit from 3 or more GB of working memory as well as from OpenCL support, the 64-bit version of BrainVoyager QX is required.

Licensing info
Note that BrainVoyager QX works only in combination with the HASP licensing system, i.e. you need either a HASP dongle for a single user license or a HASP floating network license. Please make sure that you use the latest HASP drivers to avoid licensing problems. It is possible to upgrade your license remotely (e.g. to enable the DTI tensor calculation feature), which requires the HASP "customer.exe" software. Click here to download this executable.
