Unlike the full version of Biopac Student Lab software, the BSL Analysis version used by many students outside the lab does not directly support the opening of Lesson and sample data files in BSL PRO mode. BSL PRO mode enables access to the Transform menu and other features helpful for enhanced analysis.
The following steps describe how to edit the LessonPrefSettings.txt file to enable the Transform menu in BSL Analysis version 4.0.1 or above.
1. Locate the LessonPrefSettings.txt file, typically in the LessonsSupport folder in the Program Data directory:
The LessonsSupport folder may be hidden on some Windows systems. If the LessonsSupport folder is not found in the Program Data directory, try the following steps to show the hidden folder:
2. Double-click the LessonPrefSettings.txt file to open it in Notepad (or any text editor).
NOTE: Administrator privileges are required to edit this file.
3. Change the “Review Saved Data Mode Options” value from “1” to “0.”
4. Close the file and choose “Save” to accept the changes.
The next time BSL Analysis is launched and a file opened, the Transform menu will be available.
