    1121232. Do I need to modify the PATH, etc in my AUTOEXEC.BAT file?
    113124<UL>Only if you will use the PC-GSAS or GSAS.BAT menu programs as well.
    114125If so, do the following (from the GSAS readme file):

    1271383. What versions of Windows can I use?
    128139<UL>This package has gotten some testing under Win95 and WinNT v4.0.
    129 My limited experience to Win98 seems to show that EXPGUI seems to
    130 run OK there.
    131 I would not expect this to run under Win32s on Win3.1.
     140My limited experience with Win98 seems to show that EXPGUI runs OK.
     141It might be possible to get some parts of the package to run under Win32s on Win3.1, but
     142don't ask me for help.
     143</UL>
     1444. EXPGUI seems pretty slow, or is it my imagination?
     145<UL>
     146Well, actually the problem is Windows. EXPGUI is pretty zippy in LINUX, but some operations
     147(reading a histogram in liveplot for example) can take 3-5 times longer in Windows than in UNIX.
