EC-Lab demo/freeware v11.12
mini-lockerEC-Lab software v11.12
mini-lockerEc-lab version history


  • If you have some problems with software download (especially with IE browser), please download (save) the software first, then open it and launch it directly from the download folder.
  • – Compatible with Windows XP© (SP3), 7, 8 (32 or 64 bits), 10 (32 or 64 bits).
  • This version is installed in two different folders due to administration authorization. the installation has to be done by the administrator. A part of the program is installed in “Program files” where only the administrator of the computer can write while the other part is installed in the “Documents” folder of the Windows session user. if several users access the computer this second part has to be duplicated in every Windows users sessions in the same “documents” folder.
  • The setup program installs the PDF files into the “./Manual” folder (“.” being the directory where the EC-Lab has been installed). Then the manual can be opened directly or with EC-Lab through the menu : “?, Manual”.
