Potent (current version)

*** Potent v4.16.07 ***
Released February 2018

First uninstall any version of Potent that is currently installed on your computer. Then download the setup file and execute it to install Potent. Note that with Windows XP you must be logged on with an Administrator account to run the setup program.

If you are currently running a licensed version of v4.16.06 then your licence should be unaffected after installing v4.16.07. Otherwise, after Installing Potent, run the Potent licensing application, click Update, and e-mail the User Codes to GSS.



(If you have Potent installed on a pre-licensed USB memory stick then contact us for upgrade instructions.)

PotentQ demo.

PotentQ is a simplified and streamlined version of Potent that is designed to be run from Geosoft's Oasis montaj™ interface. This demonstration version runs "stand-alone", using fixed magnetic (TMI) data. The modelling is fully functional; only the input observed data is restricted.

Please contact Geosoft for information about PotentQ licensing.



 Download PotentQ Demo_setup (10Mb)

(Like PotentQ, PotentQ demo is a 64 bit application and therefore should be installed into Windows' Program files folder tree, not the Program files (x86) tree. The setup file will do this by default.)
