    3838   `python GSASII\`
     39 or
     40   `python \Users\<me>\GSASII\`
    4042 This will cause a questions to be asked about a web proxy [#Proxyaddress see below]. Most people will not need a proxy, so the usual response is to simply press Return
    42     `python \Users\<me>\Desktop\GSASII\`
    44  in a "All Programs"/Anaconda/"Anaconda Command Prompt" window.
    46  This script will check to see that the Python packages needed to run GSAS-II are installed and that the subversion program needed to install and update from the Internet (included in the .zip file) is present. It then asks for a proxy address ([attachment:BootstrapStart.png see screen image]).
    4944After the script completes, a file named `RunGSASII.bat` is created with the locations of GSAS-II and Python hardcoded. You should have a shortcut to start GSAS-II on your desktop linked to that .bat file ([attachment:G2icon.png see screen image]). GSAS-II project files (with extension .gpx) will appear with the same icon and clicking on them will open them in GSAS-II. If Python or GSAS-II are ever moved to new locations, or if these programs will be installed on a centralized server and a shortcut is needed for each machine, this script can be rerun using a command such as
    5348to create new versions.
    55 Note that the (or bootstrap.bat) file can be rerun without problems. If there are any updates to GSAS-II they will be downloaded, but only any new files will be downloaded and the script should complete very quickly.
     50Note that the file can be rerun at any point without problems. This causes a download of updates to GSAS-II (only), so this should complete very quickly.
    5752=== Proxy address ===
    58 For most people, pressing return to use the default (no proxy) works fine, but for some sites a proxy address such as `` is needed. If you are not able to get the GSAS-II download to work, you probably need a proxy. Check with your network/computer administrators; anyone competent should know if a proxy is in use. Supply the address (``) on the first line and the port number (`7070`) on the second.
     53If GSAS-II fails to be installed, you likely have a network access problem, most commonly because you need to use a network proxy. This is not common at universities, or at private networks, but is common for government and corporate sites. When one is needed, it will typically be of form such as ``. If you are not able to get the GSAS-II download to work, you probably need a proxy. Check with your network/computer administrators. My experience is that the first-line response people will have no knowledge about proxies, alas. You may be able to get information from this website: If a web proxy is needed, supply the address (``) for  the first prompt and the port number (`7070`) for the second.
