1. Download the following files:
ftp://ftp.ncnr.nist.gov/pub/cryst/gsas/exe_win/exptool.zip (~300 K bytes)
or ftp://ftp.ncnr.nist.gov/pub/cryst/gsas/exe_win/exptool.exe (~700 K bytes)
If you want to try the absolute latest release (which may not have gotten a lot of testing, but probably has new capabilities and bug fixes) shift-click on ftp://ftp.ncnr.nist.gov/pub/cryst/gsas/expgui_alpha.zip (~320 K bytes) in place of the above expgui.exe file. You will need an unzip program, such as WinZip or pkZip, to use this file.
2. Run the programs
gsaskit_Jan98.exe c:\gsas tcltk80p2+.exe c:\expgui expgui.exe c:\gsas\expgui
These files can be located on other disks and in directories with other names, but the expgui files in expgui.exe must be located in a subdirectory of the GSAS files. If these files will be located on a fileserver, the file server must be mapped to appear as a disk drive (must be assigned a name such as F:).
If you are installing TCLDUMP, place the tcldump.exe file in the exe directory of GSAS, (usually c:\gsas\exe\). If you downloaded tcldump.zip, expand it first.
3. Create a shortcut:
More information about EXPGUI, including information on how it
can be customized, can be found on web pages expgui.html
found in the \gsas\expgui\doc directory.
6. Add the statement "SET GSAS=C:\GSAS" (again pick the appropriate drive letter) to your auto exec.bat file.
7. Add the statement "SET PGPLOT_FONT=C:\GSAS\FONTS\GRFONT.DAT"
8. Make sure you have sufficient environment space for these additions and two more that are done by gsas.bat each time you run gsas.
