FreeIAT: Versions and Source Code

There are no known bugs, but the program does make several assumptions:

  • The ‘Config.txt’ file must be located in the same directory as the FreeIAT.exe program. The default installation location of this file is in the ‘\program files\FreeIAT\’ directory.  This directory is read-only by Windows default.  You will want to move it to elsewhere.
  • Labels and stimuli (especially images) should be pilot tested. The limits on labels and stimuli will depend on the screen resolution of the computer administering the IAT.
