One of the issues that many new users have is making sure all the different pieces of software are compatible with each other.
TraceFinder installers guarantee the system has the right Foundation, Xcalibur and TF versions.
In the release notes on the installation disks, we list the appropriate instrument drivers for that particular TraceFinder release version.
An example of this would be an incompatible mass spec driver, with all the other pieces being correctly paired. The instruments may not respond,or the instrument editor may not open because it can not detect the instrument.
So a word to the wise always make sure that if you’re taking TraceFinder out for a spin, you bring along the designated driver.
