Latest release



pFind Studio version 2.8.7 for Windows

- Dec. 31th, 2016 -

pFind Studio 2.8 including pFind, pBuild, pLabel, pXtract, pParse, and pScan is available now. Access Software pages for pLink, pCluster, pNovo+, pMatch, and pQuant. They will be integrated into pFindStudio, but now they are standalone software tools.

Some bugs are fixed:

1. [pFind] The temporary files generated from different progresses may conflict with each other.

2. [pFind] The scroll bar in the spectra list will disappear after a parameter file is imported.

3. [pFind] The program may be crashed when the MS/MS data path or the output path contains unusual characters such as '&'.

4. [pBuild] Decoy Proteins are displayed in the statistic text files.



Notice:

* If RAW file read required, Thermo Xcalibur 2.0 or later need be installed first.

* JRE (Java Runtime Environment) is required. You can download it from here.

* For Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating system, please run the setup program under administrator authority. If any one program cannot properly run after the installation, please try to right click on the program shortcut or the .exe file, and click on "Run as administrator".
