    1111There are at least three different distributions of Python that can be used with GSAS-II. If you want to use a specific Python distribution, please see these older installation directions:
    12 [WinAnacondaInstall Quick Install with Continuum Anaconda] or [WinCanopyInstall Quick Install with Enthought Canopy] (the 2nd is slightly simpler). There are also older instructions using [WinOldInstall the Enthought EPDfree package] which is no longer recommended.

    1818Python is a computer scripting language, which means that one must have the Python interpreter installed on your computer to run a Python program. However, there are several [PythonPackages Python packages required by GSAS-II] that are not distributed within the standard Python distribution, so not just any package of the Python interpreter will do for GSAS-II. For development, we have been using the full [http://www.enthought.com/products/epd.php EPD] distribution but also do some testing with the Canopy and Anaconda distributions. Note that GSAS-II is being developed with version 2.x of Python (2.7.6 as this is written). It has not been tested with version 3.x of Python since we lack a dist for this.

    2222 * [http://www.pythonxy.com/ Python(x,y)] is a free Windows (and Linux) Python distribution. It focuses on supporting the Qt GUI package while GSAS-II requires wxPython, but this distribution does offer wx and all the other packages that GSAS-II requires, as far as we are aware. Note that when you install, you will either need to select to install all packages or else perform a customized installation to ensure that the [PythonPackages Python packages required by GSAS-II] are installed. To install, download the .exe file, run it and read the instructions.
    2323
    2424 * [http://www.activestate.com/activepython ActiveState ActivePython] This is commercial licensed software that includes a free version with no support. !ActiveState is well respected in the scripting community, but we have not tried this yet.
     25
     26 * We used to recommend the predecessor to Canopy, the Enthough Python Distribution (EPD) which came in two flavors, one free and one by subscription. We still do some testing with this to ensure that our software is backwards compatible. There are older instructions here for installing GSAS-II using [WinOldInstall the Enthought EPDfree package], but this is no longer recommended.
