System Requirements

Shareware Restrictions

This Shareware version of the SALIERI System underlies the following restrictions:
- Realtime functionality is not included.
- Some new features of SALIERI are not available (e.g., SALOME).


The installation does not change any system-files nor does it install any fonts.

Selfextracting installation package:

After downloading the self-extracting installation package run WinSALV2.3.Exe and follow the given instructions.


After downloading the Disk-Version, run SETUP.EXE from the first disk and follow the given instructions.

Windows 3.1-Version:

Copy the file winsal31.exe into an SALIERI-application-directory of your choice (e.g. c:\salieri). Then run winsal31.exe. All the neccessary files will be extracted. To run SALIERI, start Winsal.exe in the SALIERI-Application-directory. You can also create an icon in a Programm-Group of your choice.


To deinstall use the built in deinstall-feature of Windows 95.
Under Windows 3.1 just delete the folder you created during setup.

Limitations of this Version of SALIERI

Known Problems

>> Out-Of-Memory:

The current version of SALIERI isn't very tolerant with respect
to Out-Of-Memory situations. Since the internal state of the
system can't be repared, after displaying an error message,
an emergency exit of the system is performed in these
situations. Note, that the current workspace is saved to the
file "crashed.wsp" during the emergency exit, such that no
data should be lost. To restore the workspace, type
`load("crashed")' on the command-line after restarting the
SALIERI system.

Out-Of-Memory situations arise when attempting to construct
very long lists or note sequences and very complex note segments.

>> Recursive user-defined functions:

When using recursion, the recursion depth is quite severely
restricted (ca. 30-70, depending on the recursive functions
involved). The current version of SALIERI is very
intolerant with respect to Exceeded-Recursion-Depth
situations; in most cases, the system will crash and
all data which has not been saved (workspace, open program
editors) will be lost.

At the moment, it is safest to avoid using recursive functions
(in most realistic cases it is quite easy to find an
iterative re-formulation of recursive code).
When using recursion, check your code for termination
and make sure to save your workspace and open program editors
before executing it.

>> Identifiers containing dots:

When using object names containing dots (e.g., "a.b"),
strange error conditions may occur. This is because
these identifiers are reserved for use with the PACKAGE concept
which is a feature that will be available in the next version
of WinSAL. For the moment, simply avoid using
identifiers containing dots (you can still use underscores
for structuring object names (i.e., "a_b" instead of "a.b").

>> Arbitrary note onset times
Arbitry note onset times with numerator or denominator > 128 may
cause problems ans errors when processing these durations in
the SALIERI Kernel
