hits installation


I'm trying to install the package 'hits', but I got this error message and the installation failed 'Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found.
Software currently installed: HiTS imaging feature (ie.tcd.imm.hits.image.feature.feature.group
Missing requirement: Bio-Formats image import (ie.tcd.imm.hits.image requires 'bundle org.knime.ext.imaging 2.1.1' but it could not be found
Cannot satisfy dependency:
From: HiTS imaging feature (ie.tcd.imm.hits.image.feature.feature.group
To: ie.tcd.imm.hits.image []'

There is a way to fix this?




I would recommend not using the imaging feature, but use the HCS nodes and the KNIP extensions. The recommended set of features is enumerated on this page.

Imaging was an unsuccessful attempt which was superceded by the KNIP extensions (they created a much better bio-formats integration).

Thanks, gabor

PS.: Are you using with KNIME 2.1x or 3.0? (I have not tried with 3.0 yet, maybe the format of update site is no longer supported in that version, it is deprecated since a long time ago.)

Thanks Gabor,

without the imaging feature the installation went well. I use KNIME 2.11.1.

Thanks again,


(I haven’t tried with more recent versions, but the previous versions are available through this link. (The old link was expired.))
