This is the last version of Ecopath 5, prior to the overhaul to .NET and the subsequent releases of EwE 6. Ecopath 5 contains a few features that were not migrated to EwE 6 for various reasons; you might want to use this version if you need access to legacy features such as EcoRanger and the auto mass-balance routine. It is recommended to install Ecopath 5 on Windows XP. You might need to install a virtual PC environment.
This version will complain that it is outdated on launch. Just enter ‘Polovina’ in the panic box and Ecopath 5 will start.
Please note that we are no longer making changes to the Ecopath 5 source code; Ecopath version 5 is no longer being maintained.
EwE 6.6 requires Windows 7 or newer, .NET Framework 4.5, Microsoft Access 2007 or newer, or Access database components 2016 or newer. Due to technology creep on Microsoft’s behalf, we can no longer ensure that EwE software runs well on Windows Vista or older.
