    33This procedure describes a new way to install GSAS & EXPGUI directly from a subversion repository. In this method the distribution file, http://11bm.xor.aps.anl.gov/downloads/gsas/svnload/gsas+expgui_svn.exe (for Windows) does not need to change when the program is updated. Instead the latest version of the programs are downloaded from the server when the program is installed. Subsequently, if there are updates to GSAS or EXPGUI, an update can be made where only the files that have been changed are downloaded and installed. This update can be done using the File/Update... menu option in EXPGUI or by executing the bootstrap.bat file in the GSAS directory.

     5Note 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.

     9 * 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.
