Diagnostic Script

A diagnostic script is available to help you diagnose your problem, or to create detailed information that you can send to us if you need to contact us for support.

Click here and then select the diagnostic script for your version of Thermo-Calc

*If you are on a Chrome browser, the script may not download. If this happens, please use another browser. The script is also available as an example from within MATLAB®.

It is important to run the diagnostic script EXACTLY the same way as you run your TC-Toolbox for MATLAB® script (in the same MATLAB® version, etc).

The script automatically prints useful suggestions that, in many cases, will help you to fix the problem yourself. If you are unable to solve the problem, contact us for support.
