    99The easiest method to install CMPR is from a self-installing windows .EXE program. This program, alas, does not work on some versions of Windows -- 64 bit windows? If this is the case for you, see [#install2 section 2], below. If you already have CMPR loaded on the computer you can opt to keep the old version, but you must load this version in a new location (or rename the older version). This process will fail if used in the location where the package has already been loaded.

    11 Download http://11bm.xor.aps.anl.gov/downloads/cmpr_updating.exe and then run the program.
     11Download http://11bm.xray.aps.anl.gov/downloads/cmpr_updating.exe and then run the program.

    1313  This program may need to be run from an administrator account, depending on the levels of security in force on your computer.
     
    3434For users where the above self-installing .EXE file refuses to run, the same files are provided in a .ZIP distribution, this contains the same files as above and works the same way, but requires more manual steps. It should not require admin access, though without it, you may be limited as to where the files can be installed.  If you already have CMPR loaded on the computer you can opt to keep the old version, but you must load this version in a new location (or rename the older version). This process will fail if used in the location where the package has already been loaded.

    36  * Download http://11bm.xor.aps.anl.gov/downloads/cmpr_win_updating.zip
     36 * Download http://11bm.xray.aps.anl.gov/downloads/cmpr_win_updating.zip
    3737 * Open the downloaded (cmpr_win_updating.zip) file in the windows file browser, you should see a folder named CMPR (inside that folder is are two folders and three files).
    3838 * Drag (Copy) the CMPR folder to where you want to install the program. I normally use C:\, but it should work anywhere (please tell me of bugs that occur should use a directory name with spaces).
     
    5454If you need to download a single file that will be used to install CMPR onto a computer where a connection cannot be made to the subversion server, a single zip file can be downloaded and moved to where it is needed. Directions below are for Windows XP and might need to be slightly different on other versions of Windows. This process can be used to overwrite an older CMPR install.
