Installing FullProfAPP is really simple. Follow these steps and you will be running your refinements in no time!

  1. Download the latest version of FullProf Suite and install it in your computer.

  2. Download the adequate FullProfAPP installer for your operating system. At the moment only Windows and Linux machines are supported. You can find the download links in CIC energiGUNE’s and ILL’s websites.

    • Windows users: Click on the download link, execute the fpapp_windows_x86_installer.exe file, and follow the instructions

    • Linux users (Ubuntu/Debian): Click on the download link, open a shell session, cd to the download folder, and run the following command:

      $ sudo dpkg -i fpapp_linux_installer.deb

      After the installation is complete, you will find the executable fpapp in the /opt/fpapp/ folder. It is recommended that you additionally include this folder in the PATH environmental variable.

  3. Run FullProfAPP!


  • FullProfAPP operates by routinely executing CIFs_to_PCR and fp2k programs. Make sure that these programs are visible to FullProfAPP and included in the PATH of your operating system. You can check this by opening a session of Windows or Linux terminal, and trying to execute both programs by typing CIFs_to_PCR and fp2k.

  • During the first initialization of FullProfAPP, if FullProf Suite is not correctly included in the PATH, FullProfAPP will ask you to indicate its installation folder. For example if the programs CIFs_to_PCR.exe and fp2k.exe are located in C:/FullProf_Suite, this is the folder you have to select.

  • Make sure that you install the last version of FullProf Suite.

  • There might be cases where running a freshly installed FullProfAPP window fails on initialization. Specially if you are installing a new version and you did not properly uninstall the older version. In this case, make sure you got to the installation folder and you manually delete all the contents that may have not been properly deleted. And example of such error can be the following
