The single file (an MSI file) that you download contains the files necessary for operating the atlas. The program should run on any computer with Windows 2000 or Windows XP with the latest version of the.NET Framework installed. The program does not work on the Macintosh platform.
The folder entitled "Atlas" contains all the files necessary to run the atlas. Once the atlas is installed, a Word document to guide you through the use of the atlas is located in the "Atlas_Help" folder.
Prior to running the atlas, you need the latest version of the.NET Framework installed on your computer. You can download this from the Microsoft website. Simply search for ".net framework" on the Internet. (As of January 28, 2009, the latest version of the.NET Framework is 3.5, published November 20, 2007 under the name dotnetfx35setup.exe, available at the Microsoft website.)
After you install the.NET Framework, you can install the Fetal Brain Atlas. The website will ask you to sign an agreement and provide your name and email address prior to offering you the software to download. After you have submitted this agreement, you will be able to click on "Download" to acquire the MSI file that contains everything you will need to view the digital atlas. Choose to save the MSI file to the desktop to ensure that it installs correctly.
After you have saved the MSI file to your desktop, double-click the new icon on your desktop. This will initiate an installation wizard. Continue clicking "Next" until the install is complete. You can find the program by using the Start menu, in the Programs folder, under FetalBrain Atlas. By default, the necessary files and folders will be located in the following directory: C:\program files\CHRMC\FetalBrain Atlas.
