cd /usr/local
tar zxvf /Distrib/OpenVistA/OpenVistASemiVivAFOIAGold2005.825.tgz

Subsequently, for each VistA environment that you want to create, as a normal user with write permissions to the directory where the environment is to be created, execute:

/usr/local/OpenVistA/vista --install <directory>

If <directory> is omitted, or if --install <directory> is omitted, you will be prompted.

Subseqently, to use a previously created VistA environment, execute:

/usr/local/OpenVistA/vista --run <directory>

The script /usr/local/OpenVistA/vista requires that Xdialog ( be installed on your PC.
