Installing the SolarSoftWare Archive
The instructions below assume that you are extracting
files using Winzip . If you are using a different zip utility
you will have to consult the appropriate documentation.
1. Create a new folder on the desktop and name it "ssw_install".The rest of the installation will proceed automatically without any user intervention.
While the files are being installed, a DOS window will appear. Do not close this DOS window. FTP download of the HESSI SSW archive can take up to 30 minutes (or as little as 5 minutes) to complete depending on your connection speed. During this time, there is very little feedback to the user (We are working to change this).
When the installation is complete, you may delete the installation script zip file and the "ssw_install" folder from your desktop.
