Installation note for TASS Vers.4.2
The full TASS package is available on web sites:
TASS has been designed to run under Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7. Due to its characteristics, it demands a lot of computer resources. It is therefore advisable to use a suitable computer configuration.
The minimal suggested configuration is:
1 GHz or higher
1 GBytes or more
High resolution screen
1152 * 864
(1600*1200 pixels if Vme9U used)
100 Mbytes free on disk
Fast network connection
For comfortable download the TASS package has been divided in seven zipped files, nominally:
Before to download the zipped files we strongly suggest to prepare a folder called “TassUnzip” where to unzip any files concerning the Tass package.
A short description about the zipped files follows.
This is the main file containing all the program and support tools to build and run simulation trigger set up. After download, unzip the file in TassUnzip folder, then double click on Setup.exe to start the installation procedure. After a welcome screen you get the License form where you have to insert the license code in order to gain full features of Tass program.
If you don’t have the license code please send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org you will receive via email a free charge license code.
Alternatively, you can proceed leaving empty the tags for the license code, in this case you will install the Tass system till having the full features but you will be limited to use a maximum of 10 module on your simulation project.
In both case the following packages will be installed:
This is the main Tass system
The components library
The histogram package
The control for remote Dqc Visual Basic program
See the list in below
This is the package containing the interface layer for remote Daq programming (see TassManual).
The package is divided in four folders each one containing the examples and Class for Java, C++, VB and LabView languages.
It is user responsibility to install and register the class on its system.
This is the file containing the program and support tools to build your own module’s simulation program. You need to download and install this package only if you plane to develop code for new modules. Tass Device Editor requires the Microsoft Visual Basic 6 installed on your computer.
After download, unzip the file in “TassUnzip\TassDeviceEditor” folder then double click on Setup.exe to start the installation procedure. You don’t need any license code.
During installation process you could get some messages warning you about files already installed, answer “Yes” to any questions. This avoids to overwrite files installed by previous TassProject installation.
is completed, check in the folder
…\VB98\Template\Projects if the file “Tass Device Editor Wizard.vbz” is
present, if not, make there a copy from
”Program Files\Tass\TassDeviceEditor” folder.
If you develop any new modules and you plan to make them available to the physicist community please send e-mail to email@example.com for the publication on this site.
This is the file containing the source program code of the electronic components developed so far and used by TassProject and TassDeviceEditor packages.
You need to download and install this package only if you plane to develop code for new or not available ECC (Electronics Components Control).
After download, unzip the package in the folder “Program Files\Tass\TassEccSource”. In this case you don’t have to install anything, indeed the package is a collection of the source code that you can use as example and guide if you plan to develop new components.
If you develop any new ECC and you plan to make them available to the physicist community please send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for the publication on this site.
This is the file containing the source program code of the Nim, Camac and Vme module developed so far, see appendix B for a list of available modules.
After download, unzip the package in the folder “Program Files\Tass\ TassModuleSource”. In this case you don’t have to install anything, indeed the package is a collection of the source code that you can use as example and guide if you plan to develop new module.
If you develop any new modules and you plan to make them available to the physicist community please send e-mail to email@example.com
This is the file containing the source program of small trigger set up, most of them will be already saved at TassProject installation time.
After download, unzip the package in the folder “Program Files\Tass”. In this case you don’t have to install anything, indeed the package is a collection of the Tass projects that you can use as example and guide to build up your project.
If you intend to render any code available to the physicist community, please send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for the publication on this site.
This is the file containing the Tass manual. The manual is already saved at TassProject installation time. This package allows you to have the Tass manual without the need to install the TassProject itself.
Just after the installation you can have the first look of TASS program and you can exploit its features going in the following steps:
The update of TASS program will be posted on the web site www.top1.it. These will include the new future version of TASS itself and the new modules and Electronic Components Control and any other sample set up.
We strongly ask you to fill the guest book you find in those sites in order to be informed by e-mail about any news of TASS.
If you have question, comments, suggestions or you want to share your developed modules or your tips and tricks with physicist community please send mail to email@example.com.
