Required dependencies of Fesslix-libraries

The dependencies mentioned in the following are not required to run Fesslix. However, if you want to use a library that requires additional dependencies, you have to ensure that the associated dependencies of the respective library are met before you use the library.

Python

In order to use the Python-interface of Fesslix, you must have version 2.7 of Python installed. You can download it from https://www.python.org/downloads/windows/. Make sure to install the 64-bit version of Python 2.7!

Matlab

In order to employ the Matlab interface of Fesslix, you need a 64bit version of Matlab installed (including a valid licence).

Client

In order to communicate with a Fesslix Server you need to install OpenSSL. You can download a working 64-bit version from: https://slproweb.com/products/Win32OpenSSL.html

Useful tools

Notepad++

Notepad++ is a free editor. You can download it from https://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/.

The standard Windows editor (Notepad) has problems if a file was originally generated in Linux: It cannot cope with the line endings in such files. If you try to open a Fesslix parameter file that was generated in Linux with Notepad, you will only see a mess.

Therefore, we recommend to work with Notepad++ instead.
