Changes from Release 4
WindFarm Release 5 has been developed primarily because of changing visualisation guidelines. However, it has also been upgraded to Windows 10 compatibility and includes later versions of various libraries. None of the new features are available unless you are a new user or have upgraded to Release 5.
Please read the detailed information on the release 4 to release 5 changes page.
All the changes have been incorporated in updated tutorials, which should be examined for more detailed information. If you are interested in upgrading or require more information then please contact ReSoft Ltd.
If you are not a new user and not upgrading to Release 5 then do not download or install release 5.
New Folders and File Locations
The organisation of the files in a project has been changed. Before release 5 most of the files were stored in the project folder with some additional folders for some modules to store result and intermediate data. There is now a folder for each of the modules detailed below. Some already exist, some are new and some renamed.
The run data files for each module are now contained in its sub-folder, which is created when a module is started. If an old release 4 project is opened in release 5 the program will change or create the new folders, moving files and also updating the references in the files as necessary.
