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This version will complain that it is outdated on launch.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 version 5 is no longer supported, and may not run on versions of Windows 8.* and 10.
Note for users of Windows 8 or newer
If you receive a Windows Smart Screen notification while trying to install or execute EwE such as
Windows protected your PC
Windows SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting, Running this app might put your PC at risk.
then simply click the “More info” link under the warning, and click “Run Anyway”. Microsoft will start trusting EwE the more it gets installed. So nice.
