    55== How to install self-upgrading GSAS & EXPGUI with self-installer (preferred) ==
    66
    7  * Step 0: If you have a previous version of GSAS & EXPGUI installed, this will not update that version. You can either delete that version or keep it, but note that shortcuts to the older version will likely be overwritten and the registry keys (for right-click options) certainly will be replaced.

    9  * Step 1: download and run http://11bm.xor.aps.anl.gov/downloads/gsas/svnload/gsas+expgui_svn.exe (this may require more than one step depending on your browser, OS and security settings.)
    10 
    11  * Step 2: Run through the installer pages, selecting options as needed. Most defaults options are good choices, though some people might prefer to install shortcuts in their Start menu and might prefer no desktop shortcuts.

    13   Note: I am trying to get information on what does not work when one loads GSAS into a directory path that contains spaces (such as C:\Documents & Settings\username\gsas). Please send them to mailto:toby@anl.gov
    14 
    15  * Step 3: After you press the Install button on the last page of the installer, the bootstrap.bat file is started in a cmd.exe window.
    16 
    17  * Step 4: In the cmd.exe window, the names of files will stream by as they are loaded (see cmdout.png attachment for what the window will look like at the end). Press Enter in this window and then click on Finish in the "Setup Complete" window. Installation is now complete. GSAS & EXPGUI can now be run.
     9 1. download and run http://11bm.xor.aps.anl.gov/downloads/gsas/svnload/gsas+expgui_svn.exe (this may require more than one step depending on your browser, OS and security settings.)

    1915Note this distribution is for Windows-XP or later. Windows-2000 might work; Windows-95, -98 & -ME are not supported. Also, this distribution does not include an option to uninstall the software. This was removed since it seemed to cause security conflicts for some non-sysadmin users. If you want to uninstall the software you can delete the folder and shortcuts. A few registry items will remain, but they cause no effect and are a lot of work to remove. On some windows systems, for reasons unknown, the gsas+expgui_svn.exe program crashes with a runtime error. If this is us, see the next step.
     
    3430   d. Use name EXPGUI
    3531   e. Use as icon the expgui.ico file in c:\gsas (or wherever)
    36  1. (optional) Make a desktop shortcut to run PC-GSAS (see below).
     32 1. (optional) Make a desktop shortcut to run PC-GSAS (see [#shortcut|How to Create a Shortcut] below).
    3733   a. Use command {{{c:\gsas\exe\pc-gsas.exe}}} (modify path from c:\gsas, as needed
    3834   d. Use name PC-GSAS
     
    4642Note that if you do not create shortcuts using the above steps, the batch files StartEXPGUI.bat and StartPC-GSAS.bat can be used to start EXPGUI and GSAS respectively. These files cannot be moved from the GSAS directory, but shortcuts to these files can be made and those shortcuts can be moved.
