TC_Comb updated

TC_Comb program has been updated to

  1. A sad bug causing hanging of AX_2.exe at repeated calculation of activities (for updated PT conditions) has been fixed. This bug has been revealed on new versions of Windows only.
  2. Another problem is the error message while launching Thermocalc from TC_Comb on Windows 10 (64-bit). The solution is the running of TC_Comb and/or Thermocalc in compatibility mode: right-click on an exe-file in and select "Properties", then select the "Compatibility" tab, check the box next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and select Windows 8 or 7 from the drop-down list.
  3. A new experimental option "No avPT" has been added under the table with results of calculations. Checking of this option suppresses avPT mode of Thermocalc at re-calculation of results and performs simple geometric analysis in the way similar to INTERSX program of the TWQ package (but not the same): TC_Comb calculates so-called "simple averages" and some measure of scatter of reaction curves (RMSD or RMSWD, depending on state of the "Settings" window → "Reactions" tab → "Weighted Simple Averages" checkbox). PAvg and TAvg values are placed to the "P" and "T" columns of the table and RMS(W)D values – to the "fit" column. In the most cases, these "simple averages" should not be used as replacements of avPT results; however, you can use them in the case of only two linearly independent reactions (when avPT is not applicable). A more detailed description of "simple averages" will be published in the nearest future.
