    3 There are three ways provided here to install GSAS & EXPGUI. The first two are preferred since the download directly from a subversion repository. In this method the distribution files do not need to change when the program is updated. Instead the latest version of the programs are downloaded from a server when the program is installed (an internet connection is obviously required). Subsequently, if there are updates to GSAS or EXPGUI, an update can be made where only the modified or added files are ugraded. This update step can be done using the File/Update... menu option in EXPGUI or by executing the bootstrap.bat file in the GSAS directory. This method does ~double the files space needed by GSAS & EXPGUI. For users who need to install GSAS & EXPGUI on systems where an internet connection to the server is not possible, a .zip file is also provided with all files, but this requires that upgrades be performed by downloading the entire .zip file each type an upgrade will be installed.
