## Description

# WinSteam 4.0

**WinSteam** provides accurate thermodynamic and transport properties of steam and water for Windows applications using the new IAPWS-IF97 formulations as revised in 2007. **WinSteam** also allows you to select the IFC 1967 formulations for compatibility with older projects.

The steam property functions can be used directly from within applications including Microsoft Excel, 1-2-3 and MathCad. Add-ins attach the functions so that you can use them as if they were built in to the applications.

This version supports 32-bit and 64-bit applications. New 64-bit components include the steam function library (DLL), the Excel Add-in and **DeskTop Steam**. The package also includes 32-bit versions of these components plus the add-ins for 1-2-3 and MathCad.

Programmers can call the WinSteam functions from Visual Basic or Visual C++. **WinSteam** also includes the stand-alone product **DeskTop Steam**, an advanced steam property calculator. If you do not need to access the steam functions from a spreadsheet, you may purchase **DeskTop Steam** alone.

### Applications Supported

The **WinSteam** package includes various add-ins which link the functions to many popular 32-bit and 64-bit Windows applications. 32 bit add-ins are included for Microsoft Excel Versions for Office 95, Office 97, Office 2000; Office XP, Office 2007 and Office 2010 (32-bit version); Lotus 1-2-3 97 and 1-2-3 Millennium and MathSoft Mathcad Plus Versions 6, 7 and 8. A 64-bit add-in is included for Office 2010 (64-bit version.)

No programming is required to use the **WinSteam** functions with any of these applications. Just follow a few simple steps to load the add-in, and from then on, the functions will be available every time you start the application. You use the functions just like any of the built-in functions. The functions can be used in any spreadsheet formula and any argument to the functions can be a number, a formula or a cell reference.

### Programming Languages Supported

All of the steam property functions are contained in a Windows Dynamic Link Library (DLL). The **WinSteam** package includes 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the DLL, which supports applications designed for Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7. Function prototypes and LIB files are included in the package to support Microsoft C/C++ compilers. Declaration files are included to facilitate programming with Microsoft Visual Basic or Microsoft Access.

The Unitset argument is used to select the unit set, formulations and other calculation options. During installation you are asked whether you want the unit set argument to be mandatory or optional when using the functions with Excel. We recommend that you make it mandatory and always use the Unitset argument. If you have older Excel files in which the WinSteam functions were used without the Unitset argument they will return an error if you have selected to make the Unitset argument mandatory. In this case you should make the Unitset argument optional.
