  • Shelx
    You've heard of the obscure little used program called Shelx? Well feel free to share your Shelx questions, in all forms XL, WinGX versions, Shelx versions, we take the lot and then your wondering what about general commands yep those and Shelx related issues, ideas, troubleshooting and of course general Shelx related hocus-pocus. Just post away - remember though:
    Q2: When I start SHELXL on my PC the disk rattles loudly for several hours and smoke comes out of the back. Is this a bug?
    A: You must be trying to run SHELX under some version of Windows! The best solution is to reformat the hard disk and install Linux. However the current release should produce less smoke.

  • No unread posts WinGX
    WinGX is a MS-Windows system of programs for solving, refining and analysing single crystal X-ray diffraction data for small molecules. It provides a consistent and user-friendly GUI for some of the best publically available crystallographic programs. It is now fully compatible with the SHELX-2013 programs and has interfaces to the SirWare programs (SIR-97, SIR-2004, SIR-2008, SIR-2011) amongst others.

    WinGX is provided free of charge for academic, scientific, educational and non-commercial users, provided its use is acknowledged. Due to licencing restrictions, the program is NOT AVAILABLE for commercial users.

    A suitable reference for the WinGX package is: L. J. Farrugia, J. Appl. Cryst. (2012),45, 849-854
