I downloaded the windows zip file. I can't find any install directions.

    I entered this install problem prior to joining Source Forge. What happened: I downloaded THE and unzipped it. No install procedure was found. I tried running THE on my Windows 7 64bit system. It has failures saying NOREXX was required in the default profile during startup. Also none of the REXX macros would run. I had OOREXX 4.0 64 bit installed. I then downgraded to OOREXX 4.0 32 bit. Now most things seem to be running. The DEMO macro still fails about 1/2 way through it.

    I *think* the zip file is self-installing if you just double-click on it, but don't quote me on that!
    THE is certainly 32 bit, so you did the right thing by installing 32 bit ooRexx. The demo has had some problems reported against it and I've had inexplicable THE crashes running with W7, which is what my laptop has.

    If you've got the demo running at all, then you can just start using THE. Some tailoring to
    fit your needs will make life easier, it all depends on your background. See this for my
    initial experience:

    If you're interested in any of my work, and it has expanded considerably since then,
    drop me a direct email.

    is an excellent beginning point for all things Rexxish on the pc. Full disclosure: I'm the Treasurer.
