Installation wizard

The OpenPolScope software works with Micro-Manager, Fiji and ImageJ. However, for acquiring a dataset via Pol-Acquisition (Micro-Manager plugin) Micro-Manager is essential. The Pol-Analyzer (imageJ plugin) requires the basic Micro-Manager libraries in order to view and re-process datasets.
