Problem installing OC Processors

by splash1199 » Mon Feb 20, 2017 4:44 pm America/New_York

I'm trying to install the OC Processor for SeaDAS 7.3.2. I'm running Windows 7, 64 bit.
When I click "install OC Processors" in SeaDAS, I get the following error:

ocssw installation script failed to download.
Please check network connection or "seadas.ocssw.root" variable in the "seadas.config" file.
possible cause of error: connection timed out: connect

My connection is fine, so what else could be the problem?
I know the OC processors can also be manually installed (, but I cannot find step-by-step instructions to follow.

As mentioned on the page you reference, the OCSSW Processing System does not at present run on Windows.     You can run it in a linux virtual machine or install linux on the Windows system.  You can also do some processing on Windows (e.g., without installing the OCSSW Processing System) using GPT or beampy.
