Quick Start


Download and Install the DIONE Software

Go to to download the trial version. The trial version has full functionality for analysing any data in CSV files, including your own, but will process only the first 300 rows of data in the CSV file.

By downloading and installing the software you accept the license agreement.

Fill out the form with at least your first name, last name and email address. I will treat this information strictly confidentially and only use it myself to contact you occasionally in the future about important updates of DIONE.

Button Download DIONE on the form will download the software after pressing Save File here:

The downloaded file DIONEsetup.exe with a size of about 130 MB includes the Java 8 runtime engine, a R-3.5.3 runtime and required R packages, as well as Python 3.7.3 and the StochPy library.

Any future updates will be much smaller.

Anti-virus software may show a security warning, for example Norton Security:

The reason is that DIONE is a new program and not (yet) well-known. To continue, click Restore & exclude this file and then confirm by clicking Yes.

(Double-)click the downloaded file DIONEsetup.exe to install DIONE:

Windows may show a security warning, for example in Windows 10:

The reason is again that DIONE is not yet well-known. To continue, click More info and then Run anyway.

The default installation folder will be something like C:\Users\Jacob\AppData\Local\Programs\Dione Complex Systems\DIONE.

During installation you can change it to any other writable folder, for example C:\bin\DIONE.

The installation folder should now look like this:
