The FLAMES Launcher
The FLAMES® Launcher is a free desktop application that must be installed on a computer in order to download and install FLAMES products and content. The FLAMES Launcher includes:
The FLAMES Store
The Library section of the Launcher allows you to view, download, and install the FLAMES items that you have purchased from the FLAMES Store.
The Projects section of the Launcher manages your FLAMES “projects”. A project is associated with a project directory on your computer where downloaded content is installed, including component plugins and example scenarios. All custom software development activities performed using the FLAMES Developer are also performed on files located in a given project directory.
FLAMES applications can also be started from a project within the Project section of the Launcher. This is the most convenient way to start FLAMES applications in part because the Launcher automatically defines all of the environment variables that are needed by each application.
