Download And Install Instructions
AMEM is a DOS-based program, however, it can be run in a Windows environment by using key strokes instead of a mouse.
AMEM and its installation program are being migrated to Microsoft™ Windows.
To install the model, copy the 'amem.zip' file below into a directory, then using Windows Explorer, double click on the file. The model will unzip automatically and instructions for installation will follow.
To operate AMEM using Windows, click on "Start", "Run", and "Browse".
Then, go to the directory where you downloaded AMEM to, double click on "AMEM.exe", and click "run".
AMEM will open.
