The Demo Movies demonstrate many of the features of Language Explorer (FLEx). They were made with stable release FieldWorks 6.0, so do not contain the latest developments in FieldWorks 7.0 or 8.0, such as the new Notebook area in FLEx or Send/Receive.

To install the movies download the appropriate movie package and follow the instructions.

For FieldWorks 8

  1. Download the movie package (206 MB).
  2. Double-click the msi file you downloaded.
  3. A progress bar appears, showing the progress of the installation.

Once the movies have been installed, you can access them in FLEx on the menu: Help -> Demo Movies.

Alternatively you can open your browser and paste in the address of the movies:

  • On 64 bit Windows use:
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\SIL\FieldWorks 8\Language Explorer\Movies\Demo Movies.html
  • On 32 bit Windows use:
    • C:\Program Files\SIL\FieldWorks 8\Language Explorer\Movies\Demo Movies.html

These movies require Flash Player 10.
