Software Requirements

  • In order to search the Cambridge Crystallographic Database to provide the structural information dSNAP uses, access to a registered copy of ConQuest is needed.
  • To visualise structures in 3D a registered copy of the visualisation program Mercury is recommended.

System Requirements

  • dSNAP requires a modern, high-specification PC running Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4 or Windows XP SP1/SP2.
  • Additionally, a monitor with minimum 1024 X 768 resolution at 32 bit colour depth is needed.
  • Graphics cards with OpenGL optimisation are recommended. The graphics demands can be considerable when a large number of structures are being displayed.
