Finalizing the Installation

These instructions are for Windows-based scanners and assume a working knowledge of Windows and general workstation setup procedures.

Generic Configuration File Setup

If you do not have a Cyberware scanner, you must install the generic configuration files in order to receive full functionality from the software. These generic configuration files are used to tell the software what type of data you will be working with; Whole Body or Head & Face. Skip this step if you do have a Cyberware scanner.

  1. Use Windows Explorer to navigate to the '...\Cyberware\DigiSize\cfg\factory\' folder.
  2. Copy the files, named 'WB-9999-factory.txt' and 'PS-9999-factory.txt' to the '...\Cyberware\DigiSize\cfg\' folder.

Sample Database Setup

In this procedure, you will create a folder to store the sample databases. Typically, databases may be installed at a location of your choosing, but for the purposes of the tutorials and clarity in the user guide, we ask that you follow this procedure:

  1. Use Windows Explorer to navigate to a root directory, such as 'C:\'.
  2. Create a new folder there, called 'digisize_databases'.
  3. Locate the sample databases. (These sample databases are available for download from the Software Installation Instructions.)
  4. Unzip the sample databases into the 'digisize_databases' folder.
  5. You should now have these two folders within the 'digisize_databases' folder:

DigiSize Shortcut Setup

This procedure will enable the user to control which scanner is loaded into DigiSize by default. If no change is made here, the software will attempt to load the first scanner that it finds. If you have more than one scanner, this setup step will greatly reduce the time necessary to launch the software. It can be helpful to create a DigiSize shortcut for each scanner to give a user the fastest route to the appropriate scanner.

  1. Right-click on the DigiSize shortcut (on the desktop, or in the Start menu).
  2. Select Properties... from the pop-up menu. A window similar to the example below should open:
  3. [DigiSize Properties]
    DigiSize Properties
  4. Look for the Target: entry. It should read like this:
  5. "C:\Program Files\Cyberware\DigiSize\bin\DigiSize.exe" -autocfg,first

  6. Replace the end of this line, from "-autocfg,first" to:
  7. Motion PlatformTarget Entry
    Head & Face-autocfg,PS
    Whole Body-autocfg,WB

    For example, if you will be using the Head & Face Tutorials or a Cyberware Head & Face 3D Scanner, the line should look like this:

    "C:\Program Files\Cyberware\DigiSize\bin\DigiSize.exe" -autocfg,PS

  8. Click the Apply and OK buttons to accept the changes.

Shortcut Start In Setup

This procedure will enable a user to define a directory that the software will start in. This is very helpful if one would like to always store scans in a common directory. This procedure may be applied to any of the Cyberware software programs.

  1. Right-click on a shortcut that you would like to modify.
  2. Select Properties... from the pop-up menu. A window similar to the example below should open.
  3. [DigiSize Properties]
    DigiSize Properties
  4. Look for the Start in: entry. It should read like this by default:
  5. %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%

  6. Remove the entire line and replace it with the folder that you would like to use as the default folder.
  7. For example, replace the contents of this variable with "C:\Program Files\Cyberware\DigiSize\databases\" and each time you start the program, it will start in the "C:\Program Files\Cyberware\DigiSize\databases\" folder (if it exists-you must create the folder).

    [DigiSize Properties]
    DigiSize Properties
  8. Click the Apply and OK buttons to accept the changes.
  9. Continue to verify the installation.
