    The instructions given above seem to have worked, I think. However the whole process is extremely convoluted and filled with 'missing' or 'outdated' links. The user interface needs to be substantially simplified for the users who may not be a member of a software research group.

    Further to the above comment the attached jpeg shows the problem I have in updating the software.

    Hence my comments on the problems with the program. By the way, it works really well, especially with OCR.
