The recommended way to access the TSG8 setup program is from the Customer Licence Portal on the TSG licence server. After registering on the server and acquiring a licence, you should have a “Downloads” tab in the portal. (See the Licensing and Installation help for more information.)
If necessary, the TSG8 setup program may also be downloaded here.
The normal TSG8 setup program is for Windows 7 and above. HyLogger TSG-QC users will need this setup program instead.
A pre-release build of TSG8 is generally available. It has developments and fixes done since the most recent official release. Check the log for recent changes.
The latest pre-release is build 188.8.131.52. It has substantial internal changes to support future HyLogger-4 datasets; however very little will appear different for current single- and two-part TSG datasets. If you would like to try it then I recommend running it on dataset copies as it extends the internal format of plot-layout .ini files.
The standalone TSG executable is available here. (This is the current installed TSG8 executable, made available for patching an NVCL download service.)
A help file in Windows CHM format may be downloaded here.
Windows will note that you downloaded the file from the internet and block some of its functionality. To get it to work: Locate the downloaded file in Windows Explorer, right-click it and select ‘Properties’. In the dialog that comes up, select the ‘General’ tab and click ‘Unblock’.
If you are building a full or extension library to use for external unmixing in TSG then you will need to link the library’s sample names to TSG’s minerals list using "TableIndex:nn" tags. The list of "nn"mineral indices can be downloaded here.
