[neuroConstruct] Export settings for distributed simulations

Hi Richard,

You can enable the parallel features of neuroConstruct by adding a file 
named parallel to the install directory of the application (normally 
/home/username/neuroConstruct (Linux/
Mac) or c:\neuroConstruct (Windows)). This will give the option of 
picking a Parallel Configuration in the Simulation Configuration GUI. 
This should be set to "Local
machine, serial mode" to run in serial NEURON. That sim config was 
probably just saved with a parallel configuration last time I saved the 

The Parallel NEURON support in neuroConstruct is still under active 
development & testing and there's limited documentation for it at the 
moment. It's possible to make very large complex and difficult to 
debug/analyse networks with it, so it's not promoted as one of the core 
features of the application just yet. Anyone who's interested in trying 
it out please get in touch.

By default this exports NEURON code to run the simulation using MPI, I think. Is it possible to modify the project in neuroConstruct to change this - so, to export to NEURON to run the model on a single computer?
