BrainVoyager QX 2.8 for Mac OS X

To download BrainVoyager QX 2.8.4 (build 2645, 64 bit version), click on one of the links below. The compressed DMG (disk image) file ending with “_YM.dmg" is optimised for Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) and Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion); it also supports Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) but there are a few minor GUI issues that will be removed for the next release. The version ending with "_SL.dmg" supports Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and 10.7 (Lion). The disk images contain the installation package ("BrainVoyager QX Installer v284.pkg"), which will be automatically extracted on your system. If this is not the case, simply double click the DMG file after the download has been completed and then double click the extracted package file ("BrainVoyager QX Installer v284.pkg") in the mounted volume. If "Gatekeeper" prevents running the package, right-click the package icon and click "Open" in the context menu followed by a click on "Open" in another Gatekeeper dialog. Simply follow the instructions of the package installer (see image sequence on the right). The 64-bit version of BrainVoyager QX will be installed in the "/Applications/BrainVoyager" folder.

We also recommend to install the Documentation Viewer 1.0 application that can be used to view the User's Guide (which is installed in the "/Applications/BrainVoyager/UsersGuide" folder) without running BrainVoyager; the tool can be used also to view other help files including the Developer Guide or help files from other software including Turbo-BrainVoyager and Brain Tutor. The program registers the ".qhc" compressed HTML format after the first launch enabling to view any ".qhc" help file by simply double-clicking it in the Finder.

In case you have installed an older version of BrainVoyager QX, close any running instance prior to installation. We recommend to deinstall the older version of BrainVoyager QX by simply moving the "BrainVoyager" folder located in the "/Applications" folder to the Trash; it is also advised to remove the BrainVoyager QX icon by dragging it out of the dock area (otherwise there might be two icons after the new install). The installer might still detect that an older version of BrainVoyager QX was installed before; in this case, the installer shows an "Upgrade" button instead of an "Install" button, but in both cases the same files will be installed.
System requirements
BrainVoyager QX 2.8.4 (64-bit) is compatible with Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks). It also runs fine on Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) but there are a few minor GUI issues that will be removed in the next version that will have full Yosemite support. Users still using Mac OS X 10.6/10.7 can download the old (v280) version ending with “_SL.dmg” but they should consider to upgrade to a new Mac OS X version in order to benefit from the improvements provided in version 2.8.4 of BrainVoyager QX.
While many operations of BrainVoyager QX run with modest working memory demands, a minimum of 2 GB is required and at least 4 GB are recommended. Since BrainVoyage QX is a 64-bit application, more than 4 GB of working memory are supported, which is useful for big analysis tasks.
