We suggest you uninstall previous versions of McXtrace before installing McXtrace 1.5. The versions may interfere with each other on some systems. If you experience problems please don't hesitate to contact the development team (for instance through the mailing list) - we will help you out ASAP.
Make sure you have strawberry perl installed. For instance by
downloading and installing the INSTALL_FIRST_...-file from from here. This
also includes the MinGW c-compiler for windows.
Please note that it should be this version of strawberry perl, as you may experience internal dependencty problems otherwise. In particular regarding the plotting tools.
Download and install the McXtrace 1.5 self extracting installer
INSTALL_SECOND_AS_ADMIN_McXtrace-Metapackage-1.5-win64.exe from here.
Please make sure you run this as Adminstrator. During the installation
process you may choose to install optional packages.
In the extras directory you may additionally find MS MPI-libraries and and
NeXus libraries. The former is the recommended way to run MPI on windows
systems, the latter is necessary if you prefer to get output in the NeXus-format (The
NeXus format) instead of in the default ascii-based format.
