Thermo NSS Upgrades and Probe for EPMA
« on: November 26, 2013, 05:20:42 pm »
Whenever you update your Thermo NSS software, you *must* be sure to replace the API client DLLs (TEPortal.dll and socketdll.dll) with the ones from the new Thermo software. These files are found in the Thermo installation folder TE Portal after upgrading.

This file should normally be where Probe for EPMA can be sure to find it, usually the system folder (Windows\System32 for 32 bit OS and Windows\SysWOW64 for 64 bit OS when using the 32 bit software).

Always search your hard drive and make sure you do not have extra copies of the TEPortal.dll and socketdll.dll files anywhere else!

I've asked Thermo to install these TEPortal files automatically from their Setup.exe to the Windows system folder so everyone can access them and they said they would do that ASAP.

Update: Greg Fritz at Thermo tells me that this mod will be in the next release of their NSS installer.

Just FYI, we are still waiting for Thermo to update the TE Portal interface files automatically when PathFinder is updated, so in the meantime if you update your Thermo PathFinder, you still have to find the new teportal.dll and socketdll.dll files in the PathFinder folder, which is usually:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Thermo Scientific\PathFinder\TEPortal

and copy them to the Probe for EPMA application folder, which is usually:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Probe Software\Probe for EPMA

You can also copy them instead to the Windows SysWOW64 folder, but better to put them right in the PFE app folder. I'll bug Thermo again about making this more automatic.
