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, 8, or 9, such as the new Notebook area in FLEx or Send/Receive.

To install the movies, download the appropriate movie package and follow the instructions. They cannot be installed using the FieldWorks installer starting with version 9, in order to keep the size as small as possible.

  1. <Download the installer appropriate for the version of FieldWorks you are running.
    • For FieldWorks 8, download this (210 MB).
    • For FieldWorks 9 (32-bit), download this (210 MB).
    • For FieldWorks 9 (64-bit), download this (210 MB).
  2. Double-click the msi file you downloaded.
  3. Once the installation completes (it just takes a minute), you can access the movies by clicking Help -> Demo Movies in FLEx. A list of the available movies will be displayed.

You may need to click Open in Internet Explorer before it plays the movie in your default mp4 player program. Other browsers will play the movie immediately in the browser.

There is no installer for the movies for Linux. Linux users can view the movies online as in the following paragraph.
