A tool for direct viewing of ThermoML files
The purpose of the ThermoML
software is to provide a tool for directly viewing the data
and metadata contained in a ThermoML file. ThermoML
files conform to
the new XML-based ThermoML
developed primarily by NIST TRC.
How it Works
This program transforms ThermoML files into a format readable by
Microsoft Excel and then opens the transformed file in Excel.
Microsoft Excel should be available on the target computer.
Target operating systems are Windows 2000 and XP (other systems not tested).
Unpack the archive to a
folder of your choice by running ThermoMLOpenerInstall.exe
self-extracting zip archive.
Open the folder where the files were unpacked and run Setup.exe. The
other installation files, tmplo.cab and setup.lst, must be present in
the same folder.
If (most probably) you already have XML components on your computer,
select Ignore on all setup messages. Please do not install this
program twice on the same computer without having uninstalled the
first installation. Once the program has been installed and tested,
you can delete the unpacked installation files.
Use Control Panel - Add/Remove Programs - ThermoML Opener. Please
uninstall ThermoML Opener before any repeated installation.
There are three ways to use ThermoML Opener.
Run tmlo.exe (available as ThermoML Opener in your Start menu),
press the "Open" button, and select a ThermoML file.
You can right-click on any ThermoML file, select "Open With," then
"Other...", and finally select the program C:\Program Files\ThermoML
Opener\tmlo.exe. The next time you right-click any .xml file, tmlo
will be immediately available in the "Open With" list.
Create a shortcut to tmlo.exe on your desktop. For this purpose, you
may open C:\Program Files\ThermoML Opener folder, right-click on
tmlo.exe, select "Create shortcut," and then drag the shortcut file on
your desktop. After that, you can open ThermoML files by simply
dragging them and dropping over the tmlo shortcut.
