     Available software packages, presentations and video’s:

·        Check regularly for updates! ..... please contact by email  (ffmdemul ”at”gmail.com)  for further info or if download fails…

·        Downloads:   (1) download *.zzz-file to suitable folder, (2) change *.zzz --> *.zip and (3) unzip; (4) read Readme-file (if present);

then (5) change *.fff -> *.exe   and (6) run by double-click (for MONTCARL 1st installation: check READ ME FIRST.txt)

·        Windows: since virus checkers might see executable *.exe-files as malware, a pop-up might appear to ask

for your explicit permission  and/or for more initial information to run the program.

·        Mac / iOS: please use a Windows Emulator to run the *.exe-files. ;
