This update will replace some of the previously distributed NIST MS Search v2.0 files by updating them to the most recent version.
It is recommended that you do not run version 2.0 and older versions at the same time; however, if you do, you should not change the contents of user libraries with both versions running.
HP/Agilent ChemStation users: the replacements for the HP/Agilent ChemStation macros are available for downloading separately: http://chemdata.nist.gov/ms-search/downloads/V20CS_MAC.zip
Copy the following files into NIST MS Search directory:
|nistms.exe||Main NIST MS Search v2.0 executable|
|nistms$.exe||Loader for the MS Search v2.0 command line options|
|strdbld.exe||User Libraries Structure search database builder|
|No data and index files are needed with this NIST 02 upgrade|
If both of the following are true:
then the latest MS Search version you may use is 1.7a-o: http://chemdata.nist.gov/ms-search/downloads/V17O_UPG.zip. In this case, using NIST MS Search v2.0 to update or create your user MS library may make the library incompatible with your (third party) software. In order to resolve this incompatibility with the NIST MS Search v2.0, the third party software needs to be updated to the current version of the NISTDL32.DLL or NISTDL16.DLL.
User MS Libraries created/updated by the MS Search v2.0 may also have compatibility problems with the older NIST MS Search version 1.6x. However, these libraries are fully compatible with the NIST MS Search v1.7 and are searchable with v1.7-o.
