Cyber Science 3D provides a unique, immersive, and visual experience that allows education institutions, government, or businesses to observe and interact with high fidelity models of structures in full 3D for all kinds of learning and training applications. Cause and effect simulations allow the user to learn or train at their own pace, which is the essence of our products."

VIVED Science Session Content Update

With the release of VIVED Science, VIVED Science has changed how session files are opened and saved. Prior to update, the user's system will contain the following folder with relation to VIVED Session Content:

  • Location where App Manager installs VIVED Science Sessions
    • C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\Cyber Science Sessions

Post update, launching VIVED and saving a session, the system will contain:

  • Location where existing Cyber Sciences Sessions remain:
    • C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\Cyber Science Sessions
  • Location where App Manager will install VIVED Science Sessions and default location where VIVED Science will open to when trying to open a session:
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\zSpace\VIVED Science\Sessions
  • Default location where VIVED Science will save sessions:
    • C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\VIVED Science Sessions

In App Manager, you will see two packages for Cyber Science/VIVED Science sessions. VIVED Science sessions will install now to C:\Program Files (x86)\zSpace\VIVED Science\Sessions. This location is write protected by Windows. When you open a session, this will be the default location VIVED Science will open to. Due to this change, if you uninstall the Cyber Science Sessions package from App Manager, you will not be able to install this package again. 

How do I find my saved VIVED Session?

When you go to save a session, the default location will be C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\VIVED Science Sessions. Because the default location where VIVED Science opens to is C:\Program Files (x86)\zSpace\VIVED Science\Sessions, you will need to browse to C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\VIVED Science Sessions. You can find your saved VIVED Science Sessions by:

  1. Open VIVED Science menu.
  2. Click on Open Sessions.
  3. Click on the down chevron and select C: as shown in the below image.

VIVED Science connectivity test

Provided by VIVED Science

This will run a test to see if the application can connect to the required databases and servers online. It will display a log on the right side and the result of the test on the left-hand side. If either test fails, then the application is not able to connect properly, likely due to proxy or firewall issues.

There are 3 versions of this test; basic .exe, .exe with OpenGL, and the web-based version. Each of these are the same tests ran in a different environment. Only one of the options needs to be selected. The basic .exe is the recommended version to select. The web test is a quickest and simplest but it has been reported that some schools may pass the web test then fail the local test.

Basic .exe:

Exe with OpenGL:


If the connectivity test fails to connect to any of the listed URLs, contact your network administrator and ask for either the below URLs OR web ports to be opened on your network.
