VFSMOD-W: Vegetative Filter Strip Modeling System

 


Software Updates

Software updates for previous releases of VFSMOD-W. Please visit the Download & Registration section for full installation.

New Command line program (vfsm.exe v4.3.x)

Release date: October, 2015

Changes: please see CHANGES.txt file inside src_vfsm directory within files downloaded below.

 

VFSMOD-W v5.1.8

Release date: October 31, 2009

Bug: When selecting the water quality option on the project interface, the user cannot change the name of the IWQ and OWQ files manually. Problem with international users in the soil parameters window when using commas as decimal separator in numbers.

Fix: Users can now edit manually the names of the IWQ and OWQ files from project interface. Input check added to soil parameters window. However, this has not been propagated through the rest of the GUI program yet. User is advised to change international preferences in Windows to US so points are used to separate decimals in numbers. See Windows help for this issue.

New Features: none

To Install: Download the ZIP file that contains the new GUI executable (vfsmod-w.exe) from the link above and substitute the old file in the "vfsmod-w" installation directory. When you start the program up again it should display version 5.1.8 in the splash window.


VFSMOD-W v5.1.7

Release date: April 23, 2009

Bug: When the new design graphical outputs window was maximized, when selecting one of the other outputs (RDR, SDR or PDR), the program would quit unexpectedly. In addition, none of the VFSMOD-W graph windows would resize properly when maximized (i.e., the window became larger but the graph would retain the original size).

Fix: All the program's graphical output windows now resize properly and the program no longer quits when selecting a different design output graph when maximized.

New Features: A new execution status bar has been added to the design runs information window.

To Install: Download the ZIP file that contains the new GUI executable (vfsmod-w.exe) from the link above and substitute the old file in the "vfsmod-w" installation directory. When you start the program up again it should display version 5.1.7 in the splash window.

VFSMOD-W v5.1.6

Release date: March 6, 2009

Bug: The water quality file edit screen did not save the values when the "direct input" (Kd value) was selected. Also the new pesticide routine in the fortran vfsm.exe program (vfsm.exe) was missing a statements to check for cases where 100% pesticide reduction was obtained when no flow went through the filter.

Fix: Revised GUI procedure now allows for saving values into IWQ file. New vfsm.exe included with pesticide subroutine check added.

New Features: Graphical output for design result is now added along with documentation of the new feature added to the revised program help file. Minor cosmetic changes added (v5.1.6).

To Install: Download the ZIP file that contains the new GUI executable (vfsmod-w.exe), command line program (vfsm.exe) and revised help file (vfsmod-w.HLP) from the link above and substitute the old files in the "vfsmod-w" installation directory by these. When you start the program up again it should display version 5.1.6 in the splash window.
