latest source code release of the ALICE 1.2 desktop

Hello again,

The wiki-page with the ALICE User’s Guide https://wiki.analog.com/university/tools/m1k/alice/desk-top-users-guide points for the latest source code release of the ALICE 1.2 desktop tool to  https://github.com/analogdevicesinc/alice/releases/download/1.2.1/alice-1.2.zip

Sadly there is nothing there (404).

And it says The source code for ALICE desktop 1.2 requires libsmu version 1.0.
Is it possible to have both libsmu version 1.0 and the older 0.89 version installed?


And if not, can version 1.0 get another name so that both version can live together?

Requards,

Ton

    Thanks for pointing out the broken link in the user's guide. It has been changed to a more general link to all releases on GitHub. Latest should be at the top.

    In the future if a link breaks you should always be able to navigate down to the right place from the Analog Devices main page on GitHub.

  • Hello again,

    I found the sources, Thank you both.

    However, they didn’t work on my PC (win10) . Python didn’t find “Session”.

    After a search I copied the “libsmu.dll” from the “ALM Software” directory in the directory C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\pysmu.

    And in order to keep my old ADALM-programs running I renamed the old libsmu-directory C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\pysmu in C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\TRpysmu.

    Then I only have to change in all those programs the line “from pysmu import *” in “from TRpysmu import *”.

    This is hopefully of help for others.

     

    Regards,

    Ton

    Good that you were able to manually change Python to use old and new libsmu. I don't know how many Python programs you have written for the old libsmu that you might consider rewriting but certainly any future programs should be written to work with libsmu 1.0 and higher. There are many more new features and functionality in 1.0.
