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.
