The current version of the model incorporates a graphical user interface with full help support and has been developed with funds from the MWISED project. For users with limited computing power the previous version of the model is still available as a DOS program.

Important information about EUROSEM.
|EUROSEM release 3.9 August 1998.
This release of the EUROSEM model replaces all previous versions of the program. The bugs present in the previous version of the model have been fixed. These were particularly associated with channel routing. This version of the model has no graphics. This is because we have changed from a DOS based compiler to a windows based one. We are currently working on a Windows 95 version of the program that will hopefully become available as a beta test version towards the beginning of next year, this will have plenty of graphics!. The user guide has also been revised, although users will notice that files names and data output featured in the user guide may not agree with the files found on the EUROSEM website. John Quinton August 1998
