Cube Browser is the program used to access the cube databases.
If you are upgrading from a version lower than 2.0 please uninstall the current version first. The version number is found under Help/About.
Download Cube Browser x64 v.2.2. (Current download version is 2.2.11)
Also 32-bit version available: Cube Browser x32 v.2.2
The x64 version is recommended as it allows for more memory use, but requires 64-bit operating system. If you are running a 32 bit operating system install 32-bit version. (Find out: Start - rightclick Computer - Properties - System)
Both versions may be installed on same PC.
The program installs in the program files-folder like any other Windows program. You need administrator rights on your PC to install the program.
When you start Cube Browser and are able to write into the log-in fields the program is ready to use. If this is not the case please read our Technical Information.
NB: For some users with Windows10 Cube Browser 2.0 does not display correctly. To fix this: 1) Open Cube Browser file location (usually C:\Program Files\Rystad Energy\Cube Browser), 2) rightclick on CubeBrowser.exe, 3) select Properties, 4) select Compatibility, 5) select Change high DPI settings, 6) check Override high DPI.., 7) select Application from dropdown, 8) Apply or OK, 9) Sign out of Windows and in again (or restart PC).
The very first time you use a new cube it downloads all data structure and stores it on your disc for faster start-up. The download should take less than two minutes. Data structure files usually need to be refreshed when a cube is updated.
We have seen cases where strict writing rights or local (PC) firewalls have seriously slowed down or stopped the download. If this is the case you may download the data structure files here:
UCube cache files (current version is 2017-06-06)
DCube cache files (current version is 2017-07-10)
Extract files to folder:
- Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR_USERNAME_HERE\Local Settings\ApplicationData\Rystad Energy\CubeBrowser\SystemFiles\Cache
- Windows 7: C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME_HERE\AppData\Local\Rystad Energy\CubeBrowser\SystemFiles\Cache
(All folders may not be visible. Click your way and add missing folders to the path. Then insert your domain username.)
You must then restart Cube Browser.
