|To run materialworlds
on your own computer:
(mwinst15.exe; 3.81 MBytes - version info)
choose Save to Disk and specify the directory where you want the materialworlds
installation program (mwinst15.exe) to be saved.
|| If you've already
installed materialworlds and you're upgrading to the latest version - then
you must make sure that no components of your existing version of materialworlds
are running when you install the new one.
To do this, first quit Internet Explorer, then press Alt-Control Delete and
check that "matwrld" or "MatWrld.exe" isn't among the processes running.
If it is, select it, and click "end task" or "end process".
materialworlds just run mwinst15.exe - by exploring your hard drive and
double-clicking mwinst15.exe, or by choosing the Run option in the Start
menu (mwinst15.exe will be where your web browser saved it).
materialworlds needs to be installed and registered from an administrator
account. Most home users will be using this account by default.
What gets installed on your computer:
simulation environment and materialworlds editor
to explore off-line
complete installation will take up about 10 MBytes of space on your hard
full use of the simulations for the first 24 hours after you first try them
After this time, you'll still be able to view the simulations (and use zoom
and tilt controls, or select alternative views) but each simulation will
rewind back to it's initial state after a couple of seconds running.
To run materialworlds simulations without time limits you'll need to become
a registered user.
