You can download the entire BioHPC distribution as one compressed
file BioHPC.zip from our ftp site. You will need to unpack the
distribution and then follow the installation instructions from this web
site or from the file INSTALL.txt included with the distribution. Web
site instructions are updated more frequently. You may want to

If you plan to use HPC Basic Profile in order to access remote
clusters you will need to install a supplementary web service
providing information about available resources that is missing in
the HPC Basic Profile implementation. Otherwise BioHPC will not know
how many nodes/cores are available at the moment and it will not be
able to submit jobs based on resource availability.
HPCBP Supplemental Web Service
You may need to download additional (free) software from Microsoft that
may be necessary for BioHPC to work on your web server. The following
packages may be required:
Microsoft Windows SDK
Microsoft .NET 3.5 Runtime
Microsoft SQL Express Advanced
Perl and Cygwin are also required on the cluster nodes, but their
installers are included in the distribution.
You may also need Visual Studio 2008 if you want to modify and recompile the interface or any of
the accompanying programs.
You will also need a cluster to run your computations. BioHPC supports
clusters built on Microsoft Windows HPC Server 2008 or Microsoft Windows
2003 Compute Cluster Server (64 bit).
