Info 3:

If you are already a user of Trilobase version 7, do not install version 8 in the same folder. Use a separate folder for this installation.

Trilobase is a Microsoft windows application. It does not run on a Mac. However, you can run it under parallels on Windws 7 (or later) on OSX Lion.  So if you have a Macintosh you can use it flawlessly by first installing a virtual machine.

Unfortunetly, I'm of no help on how to install parallels on a Macintosh.

  • Registration code


Trilobase is not a commercial software. It is developped and maintained by an amateur fossil collector who is also a professional IT application leader.

Writing and maintaining such a complex program takes a lot of time. The license of some software components used by Trilobase (ex. GdPicture) also costs quite a lot. Therefore the program is protected by a registration code.

You can install and test the full program without registration code, but it is limited to 100 fossils, minerals or artifacts.

If you are satisfied with the program you can obtain the registration code in 2 ways:

1: Exchange the program for a fossil, mineral or artefact

I prefer to exhange the TriloBase program for some fossil(s), mineral(s) or artifact(s).

Contact me by email (info@trilobase.com) with your proposal.

I'm mostly interested in echinoderms and trilobites but any material from your home country is welcome.

In return I send you the registration code.
