Licence files

As Stat-JR has been developed by researchers funded on UK ESRC research council grants we will keep the software freely available to UK academics but we reserve the right in the future to potentially charge non-academics and or those from outside the UK for the software (a similar system to that which we use for our MLwiN software).

The license agreement (PDF, 29kB) details warranties, copyright etc.


Installation instructions

Before you get started

Since our recommended C++ compiler, MinGW, can have problems with paths which contain spaces, we strongly recommend that you do not install it under a user name which contains spaces (e.g. JaneSmith would be fine, Jane Smith would not be).

It will also need to be installed by someone with administator rights.

C++ compiler bug fix in earlier versions of MinGW

Note that if you downloaded a copy of MinGW between 26th August 2014 and 29th December 2014, it was not necessary to include libz in the list of MinGW libraries to install, nor to change the C:\MinGW\include\math.h file as detailed above.

Furthermore, if you downloaded a copy of MinGW prior to 26th August 2014, then as well as it not being necessary to include libz in the list of MinGW libraries, nor necessary to change the C:\MinGW\include\math.h file as detailed above, there was a bug which required the workaround, below. (This changelog and thread provide more details of the relevant recent changes in MinGW).
