26[N.B. the .exe file is not yet available, use the .zip file and uncompress
27with a zip tool]
28</LI>
29</UL>
30You can put these .EXE files anywhere on your computer, but make a note of the
31locations for steps 2 and 4, below.
32
33<P><B>2. Run the programs</B>
34<UL>Use the file manager or Run command to succesively run, gsaskit_Jan98.exe,
35tcltk80p2+.exe, and expgui.exe (the order should not matter).
36[N.B. the expgui.exe file is not yet available, use the expgui.zip file
37and uncompress with a zip tool into c:/gsas/tcl]
38
39This will cause the files to be unpacked. The default
40locations for installation are:
41<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;

50<P>These files can be located on other disks and in directories with
51other names, but the expgui.exe files
52<I><U>must</U></I> be located in a subdirectory of the GSAS files.
53If these files will be located on a fileserver, the file server
54must be mapped to appear as a disk drive (must be assigned a name
55such as F:).

98Questions</H2>
991. Can I use a different version of Tcl/Tk than the one here?
100<UL>Yes -- but: you will need both Tcl/Tk and the Winexec package (see
101http://www.du.edu/~mschwart/tcl-tk.htm) for the GUI to work. Further,
102several utility routines (liveplot and widplt)
103require the BLT package to be properly configured as a loadable
104package to run. If you care what vintage of Tcl/Tk you are using, you are
105obviously a "power user" so take a look at the pkgIndex.tcl files and fix
106your version appropriately.
107<BR>&nbsp;</UL>
1082. Do I need to modify the PATH, etc in my AUTOEXEC.BAT file?
109<UL>Only if you will use the PC-GSAS or GSAS.BAT menu programs as well.
110If so, do the following (from the GSAS readme file):
111<BR>&nbsp;
112<UL><TT>5. Modify the PATH statement in your autoexec.bat file to add C:\GSAS\EXE
113to the path (or whatever disk letter you choose for \GSAS)</TT>
114
115<P><TT>6. Add the statement "SET GSAS=C:\GSAS" (again pick the appropriate
116drive letter) to your auto exec.bat file.</TT>
117
118<P><TT>7. Add the statement "SET PGPLOT_FONT=C:\GSAS\FONTS\GRFONT.DAT"</TT>
119
120<P><TT>8. Make sure you have sufficient environment space for these additions
121and two more that are done by gsas.bat each time you run gsas.</TT></UL>
122</UL>
1233. What versions of Windows can I use?
124<UL>This package has gotten some testing under Win95 and WinNT v4.0.
125My limited experience to Win98 seems to show that EXPGUI seems to
126run OK there.
127I would not expect this to run under Win32s on Win3.1.
128</UL>

131Acknowledgements</H2>
132The version of Tcl/Tk here was compiled by <A HREF="http://www.xraylith.wisc.edu/~khan/software/tcl/index.html#tcltk-80p2-ming">Mumit
133Khan</A> and the Winexec package, which is needed to allow Tcl/Tk to run
134the GSAS DOS .exe files was created by <A HREF="http://www.du.edu/~mschwart/tcl-tk.htm">Michael
