Downloads for Linux

10 Day Free Trial

Upon first run of any DHN program, the system will ask you if you are an existing DHN customer. To begin your 10 day trial, enter “n” (no). After you fill in your information and create master and standard password, your trial period will begin.

You will only need to do this once even if you decide to trial another DHN product.
1. To extract the dowloaded archive, open a terminal and navigate to directory that contains it (probably, ~/Downloads, but could be elsewhere)

Type: tar -xzvf <archive>.tar.gz (substituting the archive name for "<archive>")
(This step may have been done automatically by your operating system.)

If your version of Linux does not accept the "z" option to include unzipping, do the following:
gunzip <archive>.tar.gz
tar -xvf <archive>.tar

2. Change into the newly created directory ("Nlx_MED_Acq", "read_MED", "NRD2MED", "CSC2MED", or "DHN_License_Tool"):

Type: ./

The script may prompt for your root or sudo password to complete installation.
