Important Notes

This service pack contains new features, enhancements and bug-fixes. For details please contact our technical support.

The file format for check routines remains unchanged since SP7. Due to the new features in SP7, the CHR file format has changed in comparison to previous releases. Old check routine files can be loaded as usual, but check routines created with SP7 or higher cannot be read by previous NeuroCheck versions.

Due to compatibility reasons, the new camera drivers are not included in this Service-Pack. The IEEE 1394 camera driver of the Baumer FWX NC Edition and NCF series is available as a separate download on this page. If you currently are using a Basler BCam IEEE 1394 camera or a mvTITAN frame grabber board then please contact our Technical Support for the special compatibility notes.
