Installing Lab Software

Download the archive of lab installer(s):


This archive contains one or more self-extracting ZIP files that run a completion script after unpacking. Run each of these; we recommend accepting the default installation path c:\Capstone, especially since multiple courses and other resources can all go to this folder, making things simple for students and easy to clean up after class. However, another path can be selected -- this is most common when the C drive is unavailable or too crowded and another drive or partition is more available.

An optional package of Workshop 10.3 workspace and projects is also available for the course. This can be downloaded from the following location:


We offer this package intending to simplify the life of the instructor who wishes to use Workshop 10.3 in his or her classroom. Use of an IDE is not part of the standard course delivery; there are small ways in which use of Workshop 10.3 will conflict with the use documented in the printed student guide. The instructor will need to be familiar with both the core software for the course and the IDE itself in order to guide students through its use, and will very likely want to customize the workspace we provide. See Using Capstone's IDE Overlays for specifics.

Install by running the self-extractor(s) found in this archive; unless you installed the above lab images to a non-standard path, be sure to stick with the default target directory c:\Capstone. See the instructor's guide for details on how the overlay works. Please consult the instructor with any questions on use of Workshop 10.3 in the classroom.
