From the original download web site:
IMP 8- Runs under Mac OSX and Windows. Software for Land-mark based Geometric Morphometric Analysis of Shape. Tools available for 2D data.
"This version of IMP was compiled using Matlab 8.2, when you download and run these programs, they will download the Matlab drivers needed to run the programs from the Mathworks Corporation, and install the dynamic link libraries needed to run IMP8.
In IMP8, many previously independent programs have been bundled into a more limited number of packages. CoordGen8 for example can call TMorphGen, SemiLand, MatchMaker, BigFix and VisProto Editor. CoordGen doesnt look much different that earlier versions, and isnt any harder to use, but it now serves as a starting point for the other programs. This should simplify using IMP programs by reducing the sheer number of them.
All users should download CoordGen first and make sure it works before proceeding to other programs. CoordGen also installs the dynamic link libraries, the other programs assume CoordGen has already taken care of this. CoordGen should create a directory in your program files (Win) or applications (Mac) directory called IMP8. Within this directory, you will find CoordGen. Save the other zipped or compressed files into the directory created by CoordGen, and then expand them. You may have to use the Mac Open command to avoid a system warning that the program is from an unrecognized developer.
Note: These programs will not run within the Matlab environment, they are compiled versions of the Matlab functions. IMP programs will tend to start slowly, due to the need to load a lot of library files, be a bit patient. The bundling of multiple tools into a single package helps to reduce this problem slightly when you are using a number of different tools.
Zip File Contents- These typically include the software tool and some example files. Users manuals are now online and accessed from inside the program, using your default system browser."
