    67 == How to install non-updating GSAS & EXPGUI from a zip file ==
     69  ''If the above two options will not work for you, then this should. The resulting installation is not-self updating, and may not reflect the latest releases, which is why this is the last choice.''

    6971If you need to download a single file that will be used to install GSAS & EXPGUI onto a computer where a connection cannot be made to the subversion server, a smaller all-in-one download is available.

    93 In EXPGUI, one can press the "Upgrade GSAS/EXPGUI" menu button in the File menu. The response to this will be a window that says if there are updates to download or that the programs are "up-to-date". If there are updates, you have the option of installing them and restarting EXPGUI. This menu item will not be present if the non-updating method was used to install GSAS & EXPGUI.
     96If one of the first two options is used to install GSAS and EXPGUI, the software can download and install later upgrades from a menu or by running a batch file: From EXPGUI one can press the "Upgrade GSAS/EXPGUI" menu button in the File menu. The response to this will be a window that says if there are updates to download or that the programs are "up-to-date". If there are updates, you have the option of installing them and restarting EXPGUI. This menu item will not be present if the non-updating method was used to install GSAS & EXPGUI.

    9598If you do not use EXPGUI, you can update by opening the C:\GSAS folder and clicking on the bootstrap.bat file or click on Start, then Run... and then type/browse to c:\gsas\bootstrap.bat (replace c:\GSAS with the installation location you used.) See bootstrap_upgrade.png attachment for what this looks like. This file is not present when GSAS & EXPGUI are installed using the non-updating method.

    97100One other option for upgrades is to use the free Tortoise SVN package (http://tortoisesvn.net/), which I recommend highly to windows users. Note that if you make any modifications to any files distributed as part of GSAS or EXPGUI, these files may not be fully upgraded, should these changes conflict with changes made in the distribution files. If you are in the practice of modifying the programs, you should learn to use Tortoise SVN to do your upgrades.

     102If you install using Option 3: to upgrade you must download and install a newer gsas+expgui_win.zip file.
