A demo version of HemoSpat is available for both macOS 10.13-10.15 and Windows 8/8.1/10. The demo includes a sample project with ten bloodstain images to analyse as well as documentation to step you through some of the features of HemoSpat.
The HemoSpat demo is distributed as a standard zip file.
Here's how to use it:
- Expand the zip file [it will be called something like HemoSpat Demo 1.x.zip] by double-clicking it on the Mac or right-clicking and selecting Extract All... on Windows
- Navigate to the new folder and read the Readme.html file
- Run the HemoSpat application directly from the folder
Here's how to remove it:
- Drag the HemoSpat Demo folder to the Recycle Bin (Windows) or Trash (macOS)
Note For macOS Users
In a recent version of macOS, Apple has added a "security" feature that shows a scary dialog when trying to run HemoSpat:
This is because Apple wants to be a gatekeeper and have developers send them their applications so Apple can give their stamp of approval.
To get around this, right-click the application and select "Open". Then you will have a button that lets you open HemoSpat. You only need to do this once.
This "security feature" also leaves the demo unable to find the included project.
To fix this:
- go to the folder containing the HemoSpatDemo.app file
- drag HemoSpatDemo.app into the Documentation folder
- go to the Documentation folder, find HemoSpatDemo.app, and drag it back where it was
Now it should run fine.
