installing mouse trap plugging 2.0.0


I tried to installing older version of mouse trap and it failed and than i attempted to install mousetrap-os 2.0.0 from the github page, and the read me file is not accessible. how to install it?


  • Hi,

    we provide the installation instructions for the mousetrap plugin on the following page:

    Does this help?

    If it does not work: which version of OpenSesame are you using? And on which operating system?



  • @Pascal i'm using opensesame 3.2.8 on windows 10. I tried to run this command in the debug window

    import pip
    pip.main(['install', 'opensesame-plugin-mousetrap'])

    I'm getting the below error,

    WindowsError: [Error 5] Access is denied: 'C:\\Program Files (x86)\\OpenSesame\\Lib\\site-packages\\opensesame_plugin_mousetrap-2.0.0.dist-info'

    You are using pip version 9.0.1, however version 20.0.2 is available.

    You should consider upgrading via the 'python -m pip install --upgrade pip' command.

    How exactly do i upgrade it?

  • Hi,

    you do not need to upgrade pip. You are experiencing a common issue (on Windows) which we have described in the installation instructions:

    If the installation fails due to missing write access, you may have to run OpenSesame with administrator privileges for the installation (on Windows, right-click the OpenSesame program icon and select Run as Administrator).



  • Thanks. it is installed now. But how do i access the plug in, i couldn't add it in the experiment sequence.

  • Have you restarted OpenSesame after the installation? The plugins should be available from the item toolbar afterwards - potentially you need to click on the arrows at the bottom of the item toolbar to display additional items including the mousetrap plugins if they are not visible by default.
