CONVERTING A WORKBENCH WORKSHEET
TO A DASYLAB WORKSHEET SOFTWARE > DASYLAB SOFTWARE >
Workbench software and DASYLab software are identical executable binary files. The
only differences are the serial numbers, the installation procedures, and some of the
naming conventions. To convert a Workbench worksheet that is tied to StrawberryTree
hardware to a DASYLab worksheet tied to instruNet hardware, one must:
Run Workbench software.
Copy the Workbench .wbw worksheet file tied to StrawberryTree hardware, so you
have a back up of the original.
Open the Workbench .wbw worksheet tied to StrawberryTree hardware.
Remove all icons tied to StrawberryTree hardware (analog in, analog out, etc) and all
Setpoint icons, and replace them with dummy place holder icons.
Save the modified worksheet and exit Workbench.
Duplicate the .wbw file, and rename it with a .dsb extension
Install the instruNet hardware and software, and verify that it is installed correctly by
running the instruNet World software.
Install DASYLab ≥ v7.0 onto your computer using a serial number that enables the
instruNet icons. instruNet is implemented as regular DASYLab icons, as opposed to a
traditional DASYLab/Workbench "driver". Select "Demo" driver when doing the
installation. Both Workbench and DASYLab software can be installed on the computer
at one time. They are like 2 programs to the computer (e.g. like Word and Excel),
however, they cannot both run at the same time.
From within DASYLab, open the modified .dsb worksheet file.
Replace the placeholder icons with instruNet hardware icons(analog in, analog out,
