Endeavour Update Page

If you encounter a problem with your installation of ENDEAVOUR, please check first, if your version is up-to-date. You find the latest update information below. In other cases, contact CRYSTAL IMPACT:

Version 1.4

Once you have obtained one or multiple ENDEAVOUR licences, you should visit this page from time to time, especially if you have deactivated the "Check for Online Update" option. (Cf. command "Options" in the"Tools" menu, "Desktop" page of "Options" dialog.) If any bugfixes or (minor) improvements are available, you can download the concerning files from here.

The current version is 1.4, released on July 13, 2006. If you are still using version 1.3b or older versions (which can be checked by selecting "About Endeavour..." from the "Help" menu), please perform the following steps:

  1. If ENDEAVOUR is running, please save any open documents and close the program.
  2. Download the compressed update file by clicking on the link below.
  3. Double-click on the file and extract all files to your ENDEAVOUR program directory (e.g. "C:\Programs\Endeavour 1.3"), replacing any existing files.
  4. Restart ENDEAVOUR.
  5. You can check whether the update was successful by selecting "About Endeavour..." from the "Help" menu. The Endeavour version displayed in the first line should be "1.4".

Enhancements in version 1.4

  • Molecules can now be rotated around a reference atom which has been fixed to a certain position.
  • The structure solution wizard has been significantly improved concerning the handling of molecules. For example, you can place and fix (and optionally allow rotation of) molecules at certain positions by clicking on the "Place molecule(s)..." button on page 2 of the structure solution wizard (formerly named "Advanced settings...").
  • Before the actual structure solution calculation is started, Endeavour now compares the peak positions calculated from the unit cell parameters to the experimental values and displays a warning if a large deviation is found.
  • Some internal optimization parameters have been optimized.
  • Some bugs have been fixed. Compare "Known Bugs" page.

Enhancements in version 1.3b

  • A bug that could lead to negative counts on the "Define atoms in unit cell" page (Page 3 of 7 of "Preparation of structure solution" wizard) has been fixed.
  • A bug that allowed the option "Local refinement", if all atoms were placed but contained at least some unfixed parameters, has been fixed.

Enhancements in version 1.3a

  • A bug affecting the fixing of atom coordinates to special positions has been fixed.
  • The problem concerning the online update on Windows 98/ME systems has been resolved.
  • Some minor bugs have been fixed.
