LADR install, advice by Ashley Norris: LADR is Windows only at this stage. A macOS version is working but is still being tested. Head to the web address here and download the latest LADR version ZIP file: https://norsci.com/?p=ladr-download
Extract the contents of the ZIP file and run LADR.exe. It will prompt you for a license key. To get one, go to the web address here and register for the evaluation license: https://norsci.com/?p=ladr-evaluate
The server will email you a license key to use with the program. The evaluation version is fully featured and all program options are available. The only restriction is that the program will require a daily online activation check to continue to function. For this reason, users will need the internet to run the evaluation copy, however, if a user is unable to access the internet for whatever reason, the software falls back to an almost fully functional version where everything can be done except for computation of the results. If anyone gets stuck on the day then I expect they can experience 99.9% of the functions in the software without it being fully registered.
The download comes with a basic Profile and two test Projects (trace element and U-Pb in zircon) to look at. Most importantly it comes with a detailed manual which contains a "Getting Started" guide.
It is recommended that all workshop attendees download and install LADR ahead of time and read the "Getting Started" chapter of the manual.
