What operating systems are compatible with Seasoft?
Current Sea-Bird software was designed to work on a PC running Windows XP service pack 2 or later, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 (both 32-bit and 64-bit). We chose Windows because of its widespread availability, and suitability as an acquisition platform. Sea-Bird provides the software free of charge as part of our instrument support. Because of this, we do not have the resources to write and provide support software for other operating systems, such as Apple, Unix, or Linux.
- If you have a valid PC emulator on your system, the Sea-Bird software may run, but we have no way to confirm this, or that the I/O connections to the instrument will properly function.
- If you have access to a PC running Windows, you can use Sea-Bird’s software to convert the data from our proprietary format to ASCII (in engineering units of C, T, P, etc. with calibration coefficients applied); then you could use your own software on a different computer to perform additional processing.
