Download FRIEND Engine

I know you've put a lot of effort into the Windows version of the software.
However, i would like to take a look at the FRIEND Engine to run on
Linux. Could you please indicate which version of the software contains
the code for the engine.

Hi Lynne,

Here is the information you need: directory with downloading, installation (Windows, Linux, MAC) and usage information information for developers software repository.

A new version of the software with extended functionalities will be available soon.

Best regards,

Download FRIEND Engine

I was trying to install FriendEngine in the last days but I was unfortunately unsuccessful. I have downloaded the package from Github ( and tried to follow the instructions in FRIENDEF_GettingStarted_2014.10.16.doc.

I tried the steps on both MAC and windows but I couldn't proceed in neither of them, in MAC after executing and in windows after executing buildAll.sln, the engine executable and plug-ins were not generated in the assumed application folder.

I do not know how to solve this problem and would be really grateful if anyone can help me solve the issue and proceed with the installation.

Thanks in advance

Dear Rodrigo,

Many thanks for replying back so soon- I think the problem in MAC was with with where FSL was located and it is now solved :)

Sorry but I was struggling with it some days but it got solved just after I sent you the question :/

Another question arising, I can not find 'friend.m' in ./frontend/matlab. Am I mistaking or it is not there?

RE: Download FRIEND Engine
This file was renamed to FriendMotor.m and FriendRoi.m. The main difference between them is the plugin they use.
