License and Updates

To get an updated license download for beta1 users whose license has expired, fetch the following tgz file and unpack it inside the top-level directory of the release. The below is valid until 2 August 2017.

Mac download

The Mac download was compiled on OS X 10.10 (Yosemite).  It consists of a zip file.  When you have downloaded this, just unzip it where you want on your disk (except no blank spaces in the directory path).  Inside the unzipped folder is an application,, which you can double click to open up (but for now, the code update mechanism, see below, does not work with the app).  Alternatively, you can open up an ordinary Mac terminal window and run bin/assign.  You can add the bin/ directory to your PATH, in which case you will then be able to run it just by typing assign. (Creating a symbolic link to assign will not work.)

(Updated 8 Nov 2016 to update license. Updated 7 Feb 2017 to update license. Updated 9 May 2017 to update license.)

Linux download

This might also work for some other flavours of Linux (please let us know if it does!). If it does not work for a particular Linux variant, please contact us to see if we can work with you to get a distribution ready. Meanwhile we recommend the VM version.

Virtual Machine download

Whatever your operating system, you can run the CcpNmr programs from a virtual machine. First you must make sure you have VirtualBox program and the VirtualBox Extension pack - you can get it for free from

You then download the AnalysisAssign VM, unzip it, and open it with VirtualBox.

The VM runs OpenSUSE Linux and includes a fully working program with all tutorial and test data.

General comments

As soon as you start up Analysis Assign, the first thing you should do is get the updates.  These can be obtained via the Help --> Check for Updates.  Once you have installed the updates, you need to quit the programme and restart it in order for the changes to take effect.


Pseudo-ND spectrum cannot be used yet.

Notes for Analysis v2 users

If you open up an Analysis v2 project in v3 then it will automatically get converted to v3 format. The main difference between the formats for v2 and v3 is that in v3 the top-level directory has a ".ccpn" suffix attached, and the xml files are one level further down, in the sub-directory ccpnv3 of the project directory (inside that sub-directory you will find memops/, ccp/ and ccpnmr/, as usual).
