bulletinstallation/update file for version 2.4.3 dated 10/07/2014 [dcdtinst.exe, 5.8 MB]
bulletnote: you may have to right-click and select 'Save Target As..." to force your browser to save the file to disk instead of trying to display it. If your security settings prevent downloading the installation executable file, you can try downloading this .zip archive, dcdt+_install_exe.zip instead, which just packages that executable file.
bulletinstallation requires prior installation the Microsoft .NET framework. This software component is often already present in newer computers. Which version of .NET is needed depends on your operating system (details below). In theory the DCDT+ installer will automatically download .NET from the Microsoft web site and install it when needed, but this doesn’t always work correctly. Thus it is recommended that you use the Control Panel ‘uninstall a program’ app to bring up the list of installed programs to check which (if any) version(s) of .NET have been installed, and if needed install the proper version based on the list below.
bulletFor 32-bit versions of Windows you need to install .NET framework version 2.0, 3.0, or 3.5. Use this link to download the installation package (dotnetfx.exe, 22.4 MB) for version 2.0 (minimum requirement, okay with Windows 98 thru XP) or this link to download version 3.5SP1 (for Windows XP, Vista, Windows7 or Windows8: dotnetfx35.exe). For version 3.5SP1 the full installation file (multiple configurations) is 237 MB, so it may be better to use this ‘bootstrap’ installer on Microsoft’s site, which downloads only those parts you need for your OS.
bullet.NET version 4.0 is apparently not backward-compatible for 32-bit Windows (or at least the Windows installer doesn't think so). If version 4.0 is already installed on your computer the DCDT+ installer may incorrectly try to download and re-install version 4.0 (this is a Microsoft problem, beyond my control) so you may have to manually download and install .NET version 3.5SP1 and then try again to install DCDT+.
bulletFor 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 the program will install and run with version 4.0 of the .NET framework, which normally is already present. Version 4.0 can be downloaded from this Microsoft web page.
bulletUpgrade note: if you are upgrading from DCDT+ version 1.x your earlier version will be left intact; use its Un-install icon to remove it

SEDNTERP-related files:

As of December 2011 SEDNTERP is distributed and supported through the Biomolecular Interaction Technologies Center (BITC) at the University of New Hampshire (the distribution and Help files can be found here.) SEDNTERP version 2 is available for Windows, Macintosh, Linux, etc. The old version, 1.09 (Windows only), can still be found here.

Note: To install SEDNTERP 1 successfully under Windows Vista you must have administrator privileges. After downloading, you may need to right-click on the installation .exe file and use the 'run as administrator' option to start the installation. SEDNTERP 1 will not run in 64-bit versions of Windows Vista. To run SEDNTERP under 64-bit versions of Windows 7 you must install the Windows Virtual Machine and Windows XP mode, and then install SEDNTERP 1 within a Windows XP window.
