Installing TPC software
In VSSHP domain
In Turku PET Centre and hospital network the 32-bit versions of software are automatically
installed (on mapped network drive
P:\bin\windows), but if they are not, then
contact the IT group.
If you have 64-bit Windows, you are by default still using the 32-bit versions of software.
The 64-bit versions are located in
P:\bin\win64, and to use those you need to add
this directory to the PATH environment variable before the
Alternatively you can install the 64-bit versions of programs by following instructions below.
Outside VSSHP domain
If your computer is not in hospital domain, then download
programs, and unzip the
.exe files into a folder in your computer, preferably
a folder which is dedicated only to TPC software, for example
If you have 32-bit Windows you must download 32-bit versions of software,
otherwise either 32-bit and 64-bit versions can be used.
