    25 You can install anywhere you wish. The installer version uploaded on 26/June/16 can be used with directories containing spaces. **Suggestion: Make a note of the location of the "Destination Folder"** (you can select it and use control-C to copy it to the clipboard). It may be more convenient to locate this this in an easy-to-find location such as your Documents folder and to select name such as `GSAS2` rather than `g2conda`
     25* You can install anywhere you wish. You should note the directory you use here in case you have problems (see below). This must be a new directory.
