    7  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.

Directions below are for Windows XP and might need to be slightly different on other versions of Windows. This process requires that the files from the zip package must be loaded into an empty directory. If you opt to keep an old GSAS/EXPGUI version, create a new folder for this install (or rename the older version). This process will fail if used in the location where the package has already been loaded.
