Installing GSAS-II on Windows with Anaconda

You will need to know if you are running 32- or 64-bit Windows (click here if you are not sure).

You will need to download the Anaconda package from Continuum Analytics, Inc. download page. (There is no cost for this, but an e-mail address is required.) Select the "32-bit — Python 2.7 — Graphical Installer" if on 32-bit Windows. For 64-bit windows either version can be used, but we recommend "Windows 64-bit Python 2.7 Graphical Installer" as that will handle larger packages.

You will download a file such as "Anaconda-2.x.x-Windows-x86.exe" (32-bit) or "Anaconda-2.2.0-Windows-x86_64.exe (64-bit). Click on that file to run the installer. You will be given the option to install for just yourself or for all users. Either option works, but if only one account is in use on your computer, "Just Me" is a bit easier. The default install location is fine, too. With the advanced options, it will be much easier to add Anaconda to your path, and make register Anaconda as the default Python.

Once Anaconda is installed, in the "All Programs"/Anaconda menu, select "Anaconda Command Prompt" type command

conda install wxpython

because by default this package is not included. Press return and the package is loaded and installed.
