26</UL>
27You can put these .EXE files anywhere on your computer, but make a note of the
28locations for steps 2 and 4, below.
29
30<P><B>2. Run the programs</B>
31<UL>Use the file manager or Run command to succesively run, gsaskit_Jan98.exe,
32tcltk80p2+.exe, and expgui.exe (the order should not matter)
33
34This will cause the files to be unpacked. The default
35locations for installation are:
36<P>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; gsaskit_Jan98.exe&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;

43c:/gsas/tcl
44
45<P>These files can be located on other disks and in directories with
46other names, but the expgui.exe files
47<I><U>must</U></I> be located in a subdirectory of the GSAS files.
48If these files will be located on a fileserver, the file server
49must be mapped to appear as a disk drive (must be assigned a name
50such as F:).

93Questions</H2>
941. Can I use a different version of Tcl/Tk than the one here?
95<UL>Yes -- but: you will need both Tcl/Tk and the Winexec package (see
96http://www.du.edu/~mschwart/tcl-tk.htm) for the GUI to work. Further,
97several utility routines (liveplot and widplt)
98require the BLT package to be properly configured as a loadable
99package to run. If you care what vintage of Tcl/Tk you are using, you are
100obviously a "power user" so take a look at the pkgIndex.tcl files and fix
101your version appropriately.
102<BR>&nbsp;</UL>
1032. Do I need to modify the PATH, etc in my AUTOEXEC.BAT file?
104<UL>Only if you will use the PC-GSAS or GSAS.BAT menu programs as well.
105If so, do the following (from the GSAS readme file):
106<BR>&nbsp;
107<UL><TT>5. Modify the PATH statement in your autoexec.bat file to add C:\GSAS\EXE
108to the path (or whatever disk letter you choose for \GSAS)</TT>
109
110<P><TT>6. Add the statement "SET GSAS=C:\GSAS" (again pick the appropriate
111drive letter) to your auto exec.bat file.</TT>
112
113<P><TT>7. Add the statement "SET PGPLOT_FONT=C:\GSAS\FONTS\GRFONT.DAT"</TT>
114
115<P><TT>8. Make sure you have sufficient environment space for these additions
116and two more that are done by gsas.bat each time you run gsas.</TT></UL>
117</UL>
1183. What versions of Windows can I use?
119<UL>This package has gotten some testing under Win95 and WinNT v4.0.
120My limited experience to Win98 seems to show that EXPGUI seems to
121run OK there.
122I would not expect this to run under Win32s on Win3.1.
123</UL>
124
125<H2>
126Acknowledgements</H2>
127The version of Tcl/Tk here was compiled by <A HREF="http://www.xraylith.wisc.edu/~khan/software/tcl/index.html#tcltk-80p2-ming">Mumit
128Khan</A> and the Winexec package, which is needed to allow Tcl/Tk to run
129the GSAS DOS .exe files was created by <A HREF="http://www.du.edu/~mschwart/tcl-tk.htm">Michael
130I. Schwartz</A>.
