    33Overview: Installing GSAS-II requires three things: installing a Python distribution, a download package (subversion) and the actual GSAS-II code.
    44
    5 Use these instructions if you are using 32-bit Windows, or a version of Windows older than Windows-7 or want to install Python yourself.

    77=== Python ===
     
    2020 * We used to recommend the predecessor to Canopy, the Enthough Python Distribution (EPD) which came in two flavors, one free and one by subscription. Use of this is not recommended, but might be needed with really old computers (say Windows-XP). There are older instructions here for installing GSAS-II using [WinOldInstall the Enthought EPDfree package], but this is no longer recommended.

    22 === Subversion ===
     22* For **Windows XP**, use these Python releases:
     23 * https://repo.continuum.io/archive/Anaconda-2.3.0-Windows-x86_64.exe (64-bit)
     24 * https://repo.continuum.io/archive/Anaconda-2.3.0-Windows-x86.exe (32-bit)
     25
     26 You should then be able to use the conda command to install GSAS-II [InstallConda following these instructions.]
     27 With **Windows Vista**, you might be able to use a newer Python, but I have been unable to determine where Vista support was dropped.

     29=== Subversion & GSAS-II Sources===
    2330
    2431Subversion is a software version tracking system that allows you to download and update the GSAS-II software directly from the APS subversion server (https://subversion.xray.aps.anl.gov/pyGSAS/trunk/). You can install a variety of different versions of this software, but the two we recommend for Windows are these:
     
    4249=== Compiling Fortran Code ===
    4350
    44 '''''Normally you will not need to compile anything.''''' The GSAS-II distribution contains compiled .pyd (library modules) needed by a number of 32-bit and 64-bit configurations, but this is not exhaustive. If you are working with an unsupported combination, [CompilingWindows compilation instructions can befound here].
     51'''''Normally you will not need to compile anything.''''' The GSAS-II distribution contains compiled .pyd (library modules) needed by a number of 32-bit and 64-bit configurations, but these files must match both the Python and Numpy major release number, so when installing your own versions there is a pretty good chance we will not have what you need pre-built. If you are working with an unsupported combination, [CompilingWindows compilation instructions can befound here].
