Cube Browser is the program used to access the cube databases.
Download Cube Browser v1.17 HERE.
(Current download version is 1.17.12).
The program installs in the program files-folder like any other Windows program. You need administrator rights on your PC to install the program.
When you start Cube Browser and are able to write into the log-in fields the program is ready to use. If this is not the case please read our technical information.
The very first time you use a new cube it downloads all data structure and stores it on your disc for faster start-up. The download should take less than two minutes. Data structure files may need to be refreshed when a cube is updated.
We have seen that strict writing rights or local (PC) firewalls have seriously slowed down or stopped the download. If this is the case you may download the data structure files here:
UCube cache files (current version is 2013-05-13)
DCube cache files (current version is 2013-05-14)
Extract files to folder. (All folders may not be visible. Click your way and add missing folders to the path. Then insert your username):
Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR_USERNAME_HERE\Local Settings\ApplicationData\Rystad Energy\CubeBrowser\Cache
Windows 7: C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME_HERE\AppData\Local\Rystad Energy\CubeBrowser\Cache
You must then restart Cube Browser.
Shapefile layers may be added to the map. Installed layers can be turned on/off in the Map Options/Layers Dialog, and default layers are set in the Preferences/Map. The following maps are available:
Extract files into the C:\Program Files (x86)\Rystad Energy\Cube Browser\Maps folder and restart Cube Browser.
