Dear all, I and my group are starting in the use of the very interesting hadrontherapy example and we are planning to use it in our university for carbon-ion therapy studies.

The version with geant4.8.3 worked correctly with all the macro files.

In the new version only the default.mac and visualisation.mac seem to produce some result. The other produce only runs that end immediately.

Various test and comparison with experimental data (at energies between 100 and 300 AMeV), obtained with the previous hadrontherapy version showed identical results between the lowE ICRU49 and the Standard even if our data seem to be better fitted with the Standard. On the other hand Standard results fitted perfectly with data from Ziegler and Paul that represent a reference in this field. How an user can choice beetween two packages that do not show macroscopical differences?

Thank you

Bernd Shalten
