      Hi,

      I am working on a Intel ®core ™i7-3770 CPU 3.4 GHz, 8GB RAM, with window 7 professional installed.

      Brainsuite15b, Matlab complier 12b, visual basics are installed. Brain extraction, SV reg and BPD are working.

      To work on statistics part…I installed R-3.2.2-win.exe, Miniconda-latest-Windows-x86_64.exe downloaded from brainsuite website.

      Both programs are located in C:\ProgramFiles folder.

      Then I run BSS_Install.bat with Command Prompt (Admin). It installs many files and except for few messages, all soft wares are successfully installed.

      >> Setting R Environment to c:\Program Files\R\R-3.2.2\bin\x64\

      WARNING: The data being saved is truncated to 1024 characters.

      >> Error in read.dcf(file.path(pkgname, “DESCRIPTION”), c(“Package”, “Type”)) :

      cannot open the connection

      Ultimately the program is installed:

      Running setup.py install for bss … done

      Successfully installed bss-0.1.dev0

      BSS Install Successfully

      Press any key to continue . . .

      • However… there is no bss folder in brainsuite program folder. bss folder is located in miniconda folder { C:\Program Files\Miniconda\Lib\site-packages\bss }. There is no bin in bss folder. I have tried running python bss_run.py –h from this folder as well as from {C:\Program Files\Miniconda\Scripts }. But it is not working. Please help me, I am stuck at this step.

      Hello,

      This is the correct installation behavior. BSS will not install in the BrainSuite program folder, but will be installed in the Scripts\ directory.

      Now there is some issue in setting the PATH where you get the warning,
      “WARNING: The data being saved is truncated to 1024 characters.”

      Can you check if these paths are correctly set?

      Can you also post the output of python bss_run.py -h

      Thanks,
      Shantanu

      Hi,
      There is no folder named as “directory or “bin” in the scripts folder. However, there is a file in scripts folder named “bss_run.py”. When I try to run the command “python bss_run.py –h” from this folder, the following message comes.

      C:\Users>cd C:\Program Files\Miniconda\Scripts
      C:\Program Files\Miniconda\Scripts> python bss_run.py -h
      Error: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.
      Something happened during imports.
      Perhaps R is not installed properly or R_HOME is not setto the correct version
      Please send the whole message to the developers.
      C:\Program Files\Miniconda\Scripts>

      I have already posted the warning messages during the installation process.
      1. Setting R Environment to c:\Program Files\R\R-3.2.2\bin\x64\
      WARNING: The data being saved is truncated to 1024 characters.
      2. Error in read.dcf(file.path(pkgname, “DESCRIPTION”), c(“Package”, “Type”)) :

      Hi Dr. Neyaz,

      Looks like the programs are installed but the paths are not set correctly. This relates to the warning of 1024 character path lengths on Windows 7, “WARNING: The data being saved is truncated to 1024 characters.”

      Incidentally we have not tested BSS on Windows 7. Just wondering if it’s possible to upgrade your OS to a later version?

      Thanks,
      Shantanu

      Hi experts,

      The same trouble is happening on my Windows7 PC.
      Warning message is the same as above.

      Will it be fixed soon?

      Dear users,

      Bss was tested on Windows 8 and 10. We are currently in the process of getting access to a Windows 7 machine to test these installation problems. Please stay tuned.

      Thanks,

      Please provide a single line command for installation of all components of bss for windows 7 /10, so that less experienced uses may install it

      Yes, we are trying to work on it. Some packages cannot be compiled from source on Windows very easily so we need to make the binaries available. This makes the installation process complicated.

      We are hoping that with the release of the new bash shell in Windows 10, the installation process may become easier.

      Thanks,
      Shantanu

      Hi,

      It seems that 1024 truncation problem also exists on win 10. Does anyone have a solution for it ?

      Thanks

      Hi, experts,

      I am using BrainSuite 17a on Windows10 and still unable to install BSS.
      There is no bss folder.

      Hi Tetsuya,

      We have now ported BSS to R. You can find the link at http://brainsuite.org/bssr
      The instructions to install are much simpler and should work for you on Windows.
      Can you please give it a try?

      Thanks,
      Shantanu

      Hi, Shantanu

      Thank you for response.

      The installation has completed successfully.
      I will try my data and report it.

      Hi Tetsuya,

      A couple of things…
      1. Is the “&” in your path creating this problem?
      2. Does your path start with D, or is this D:/ ?

      Also you could run the stats on the command line, but I would suggest running it through RStudio. It’s easier and you can do this step by step.

      I’ve added tutorial slides in the bottom at http://brainsuite.org/bssr/ for standard usage cases.

      Hi,

      Thank you for instruction for bssr. There is another error message like this.

      ****
      Error: Could not determine the BrainSuite atlas used for registration.
      Please check the log file D:/Tetsuya/All_data/MRI/DTI&MPRAGE/38NC/2011101206/2011101206.svreg.log, and check if the subject directory is valid. If using a custom atlas, supply the path in the atlas= argument.
      ****

      In avreg.log file, there is a path to the atlas like this.
      C:\Program Files\BrainSuite17a\svreg\BrainSuiteAtlas1\mri

      Best regards,

      tetsuya

      Hm.. Is this because of the “&” in the file name?
      In RStudio, what does
      dir(‘D:/Tetsuya/All_data/MRI/DTI&MPRAGE/38NC/2011101206/2011101206.svreg.log’)
      give you?

      Please not the quotes “” above may not be correctly formatted online. Please don’t copy the command as is, but type in the start and the end quotes.

      Hi,

      Your script gives “character(0)”

      If “&” was replaced by “and” the error message is the same as before.

      Hi Tetsuya,

      Does the path D:/Tetsuya/All_data/MRI/DTIandMPRAGE/38NC/2011101206 actually exist on disk?

      I.e. Does the directory DTIandMPRAGE exist in the directory MRI?
      Or did you just change & to and in the command?

      Thanks,
      Shantanu

      Hi,

      This path really exists on my PC. It is working in previous directory.

      I am afraid that “Yen mark” instead of “/” is used to separate directry in
      Japanese PC and svreg.log file uses Yen mark.

      Hmm. Can you do one more thing?
      Type these 3 commands:

      file.path(‘D:/Tetsuya/All_data/MRI/DTI&MPRAGE/38NC/’, “2011101206”, ‘*.svreg.log’)

      Sys.glob(file.path(‘D:/Tetsuya/All_data/MRI/DTI&MPRAGE/38NC/’, “2011101206”, ‘*.svreg.log’))

      check_file_exists(Sys.glob(file.path(‘D:/Tetsuya/All_data/MRI/DTI&MPRAGE/38NC/’, “2011101206”, ‘*.svreg.log’)))

      Thanks. I recon this is due to the file separators on Windows.
      Can you please do the following?

      1. Can you run
      check_file_exists(“D:/Tetsuya/All_data/MRI/DTI&MPRAGE/38NC/2011101206/2011101206.svreg.log”)

      2. Attach/paste the contents of the file 2011101206.svreg.log

      3. Run get_brainsuite_install_path()

      4. get_brainsuite_atlas_id_from_logfile(“D:/Tetsuya/All_data/MRI/DTI&MPRAGE/38NC/2011101206/2011101206.svreg.log”)
