Installing TEQC on a windows 10 machine
Trying to install the executable on a new desktop and the last time I managed to get this figured out was in 2014. Anybody have any tips? It's a DOS driven program with a windows GUI.
As a foot note I get a lot of grief from our IT people over the legacy programs I've come to rely on. I'm like if it ain't broke, why fix it, while they are like, what's this MS-DOS stuff? This program isn't supported so you shouldn't be using it. My favorite so far from the head of our IT department, "Well if you can't get it to work we'll just buy you a new Trimble".
TEQC is a command line program. Just put the executable in a folder in your PATH or add the folder to your PATH.
Using the command line, change directories to where your data is located.
To convert a Trimble DAT file to RINEX you would enter:
teqc -tr d +nav yourfile.23n yourfile.dat > yourfile.23o
I commonly use this along with -week to convert from my old Trimble 5800
Dan, Do you use the windows GUI at all or run everything off the command line?
@williwaw I use the command line. There was at one point a GUI program WinTEQC Editor that acted as a front end to the TEQC program. I'm comfortable using command line programs, so for me that was just easier.
