    1111      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
    12  4. After you press the Install button on the last page of the installer, the bootstrap.bat file is started in a cmd.exe window.
     12 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.
    1313 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.

    2626 1. Run the BOOTSTRAP.BAT file in the GSAS directory to download the GSAS & EXPGUI files from the server. Note, this file can safely be rerun if a problem occurs in the download. In fact, when ever it is run, it will check the files on your computer against those on the repository and will download any updates.
    2727 1. (optional) Run the MAKEREGISTRY.BAT file to make registry entries that change the icon associated with .EXP files and to link GSAS applications to these files. By default, a double-click on a .EXP file will start EXPGUI, but this can be changed by editing the batch file (see comments inside).
    28  1. (optional) Make a desktop shortcut to run EXPGUI (see below).
     28 1. (optional) Make a desktop shortcut to run EXPGUI (see [#shortcut How to Create a Shortcut] below).

    4141
    42 Note 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. 
     42Note 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 and can have their
     43starting directory changed.
