    Hi
    I don't have any simulation issues yet, however I am planning on making a 3d neuroanatomical model of pruning and structural plasticity soon. I will use some of the code base at the NMC portal as a starting point.

    Hi! I have a question regarding HBP School 2016 installation guide. It is mentioned that I can install the VM relevant to the tutorial which have all the necessary software pre-installed. From where do I have to download this VM? There is no link given for the VM.

    HI @Sarwat-Fatima thanks for asking. We are still working on the VM, the link will be available soon.

    @sarwatfatimam
    @elisabettai Okay. Thanks.

    @Sarwat-Fatima In the mean time, you could already try out of VM from a previous tutorial: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B5FLVTgErnMSdXZWYjU2SHlXZ3c

    Hi there! I'm trying to be prepared with VM for the HBP school 2016...finding some troubles. I'm finding problems when trying to open Virtual Machine from FENS 2016 (used to test whether VirtualBox has been properly installed). I think VirtualBox is correctly installed, but an error message appears:

    "Acceleration by hardware VT-x/AMD-V is not found in your system. Thus the invited system of 64 bits won't be able to detect a 64 bits-CPU and won't be able to initialize." (sorry if there are some mistakes, as I've translated from a Spanish error message)

    Could you please help me?

    @wvangeit
    hi, sorry to hear you have some trouble with the VM
    today I've uploaded a first version of the VM for the HBP school
    could you try and see if that one works ?
    TeresaGB
    @TeresaGB
    Yes, now I'm downloading it...ok!
    then, I can forget about the VM from FENS2016?
    Werner Van Geit
    @wvangeit
    yes, indeed
    TeresaGB
    @TeresaGB
    OK, THANKS!
    hope to have good news in a while ;-)

    @TeresaGB
    Sorry Werner, but I'll take advantage of your help...It is the first time that I'm using Virtual Machines and all this. I've installed the VirtualBox 5.1.10 and its extension pack. Then I've downloaded the SDK, but once I got the folder, I don't know how to proceed...Some advice on that? Thanks again!
    Werner Van Geit
    @wvangeit
    np
    what do you mean with 'the SDK' ?
    TeresaGB
    @TeresaGB
    VirtualBox 5.1.10 Software Developer Kit (SDK)
    Werner Van Geit
    @wvangeit
    let me check, but I don't think you need that
    it's ok if you just install Virtualbox
    TeresaGB
    @TeresaGB
    ok
    Werner Van Geit
    @wvangeit
    don't think it's even necessary to install the extensions
    TeresaGB
    @TeresaGB
    thanks!
    Werner Van Geit
    @wvangeit
    I'll mention that in our instructions
    TeresaGB
    @TeresaGB
    great
    Werner Van Geit
    @wvangeit
    the instruction page has been updated

    k, let me check for a second
    TeresaGB
    @TeresaGB
    thanks a lot
    Werner Van Geit
    @wvangeit
    ok, it looks like your processor doesn't support 64 bit
    TeresaGB
    @TeresaGB
    something I can do?
    Werner Van Geit
    @wvangeit
    well, I can build a 32 bit version of the VM
    but this will take a bit of time
    is it ok if I let you know something by tomorrow evening ?
    TeresaGB
    @TeresaGB
    :-S sorry for that
    for sure!
    Werner Van Geit
    @wvangeit
    I need to upload the new VM from the univerity network
    TeresaGB
    @TeresaGB

    Werner Van Geit
    @wvangeit
    ah but wait
    actually you processor also doesn't support VT-x (virtualization technology)
