Is MassHunter Acquisition software B.04 compatible with Windows 7 Pro SP1 64 bits?
Officially it was only supported on Windows 7 with no service pack. It may install, but there are potential issues. It would have to be installed on a different PC than the one running Acq B.08.00, and since the firmware on the QTOF has been updated it may not allow for an instrument to be configured in B.04.00 due to the mismatch. The offline editor can only work if an instrument has been successfully configured.
If you have data files acquired with the old methods another option would be to use Qual to print an Acquisition Method Report from the data file.
What instrument is this acquisition for? Do you have the minor revision number as well? Some instruments had a .01 release.
Software version is B.04.00
It is for a QTOF 6520 with a 1200 LC.
The main goal here is just to be able to open our old methods in the offline method editor (after launch of Acq Launcher of course). We recently got the updated version (B.08) of MassHunter and it seems that the methods are not compatible with the new software and that the auto conversion does not work for all the parameters.
So we don't need to run the software compeltely or control the equipments just to be able to open the old methods with it!
