WinSAAM Release Version 3.0.1

7/23/2000 Full Installation of Release 2.2.1 (Windows 2000 compatible): WinSAAM Setup

1/19/2001 Full Installation of Release 3.0.1: WinSAAM Setup

WinSAAM is a Windows version of SAAM31 supporting almost all the features of this version of the program and, at the same time, capitalizing on features of Windows to bring added functionality and efficiency to your modeling session. For example WinSAAM supports a new graphics system which permits extreme flexibility in terms of configuring plots and which accommodates exporting plots directly from the plot window to your word processing or graphic refinement environment. Similarly, a new spreadsheet output facility allows the results from WinSAAM data processing to be exported directly in Excel or other spreadsheet systems, or to your favorite statistical tool in readiness for further data processing and analysis.

WinSAAM was designed primarily by Dr Peter Greif at the National Institute of Health and Dr Ray Boston of the Veterinary School at the University of Pennsylvania.

WinSAAM Installation Problems

If you have have installed WinSAAM but it will not run, please try the following:

  • Some Iomega programs distributed with the Zip drive are incompatible with WinSAAM and will cause it to fail. Turn off all Iomega programs on startup. You can accomplish this by deleting the Shortcut to Iomega programs from the following directory:
    C:\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
    and rebooting your system. Then start WinSAAM.

If that does not correct the problem, then

  • One of the system files which WinSAAM needs was not correctly installed. Uninstall WinSAAM, then re-run the install program. Make sure that you have closed all running programs before installing WinSAAM.
