The vIDEs code is released in the compiled version and can be downloaded here. As of now, the only supported operating system is Linux 64 bit. The actual license is currently unlimited in time, but it may change in future. In order to be activated, an email has to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject: “vIDEs activation”, specifying: 1) the name of the user, 2) the company, 3) the purpose for which vIDEs is going to be used and 4) the mac address of the interface used to access internet.
After that, the code will be automatically activated.
Put the code in whatever directory you prefer (e.g. /directoryname/vIDEs) and do not forget to export such directory, i.e., using the name of the previous directory
setenv PATH $PATH:/directoryname/vIDEs
You can also save the above command line in the .bashrc file in your home directory.
Sometime it can happen that you can receive a message “Permission denied”. In this case type the following commands, in the directory you have installed the code
chown your_user_name ./vIDEs
chmod +x ./vIDEs
where your_user_name is the username you use to login in your computer.
In order to work, you need to run vIDEs on a computer connected to the internet.
