Can you direct me where I can get the Experiment Editor?
Thanks in advance Wilson I know this is the NPI thread, but I am unfamiliar with the site to know how to post a question in a different location so forgive me.
Does anyone know anything about the Diagnostic Screener for Compulsive Buying?
Normally, users open and edit these files using the Media Lab Experiment Editor (mxedit.exe).
It's free when you install Media Lab, even if you are not licensed to use Media Lab for running studies.
However, questionnaire (.que) and experiment (.exp) files are really just little Access database files.
If you right click on any questionnaire or experiment file and select Open With, you can choose Microsoft Access if you have it installed (you may have to browse for it).
If you do this you may be informed that you can not make changes to database objects. You may also be asked if you want to convert the database to a more recent version--just say no, and ask to open the file.
Once the file is open in Access, you can double click on Table1 to view or edit the items in the file.
This allows you to bypass the Media Lab Experiment Editor completely or you can do some of the work in Access and some of the work in the Media Lab editor.
Some people, e.g., like to load their files into Access for heavy copying and pasting jobs, or to use the Access Spell Checker.
In your case it sounds like you just want a copy of the items, for which this would also do the trick.
