About the Win32 binary releases

As already mentioned there is an installer package for Qucs for Win32 systems. The relocations of the package (the location where the package gets installed) is mainly steered by environment variables. During a normal installation the appropriate environment variables are automatically set for the user who installed the package.

One of them must be emphasised: HOME. During installation an appropriate file system location will be found. When it was already set then the previous value is assumed. The location decides where the project, intermediate and configuration files will be saved. So when the user wonders about missing project files or lost configuration it's worth to have a look at the environment variables.

If FreeHDL is meant to be used for digital simulation then also the binary package must be downloaded and installed. It requires the MinGW32 compiler. If it is not already installed, it's possible to install a prepared binary package for this, too. It contains the minimal MinGW32 installation required to work with FreeHDL.
