ASReml (standalone)

Installation Instructions for the versions of ASReml 3
available from www.mmontap.org

Windows systems

There are four download files to choose from
ASReml-3.0-hc-W-32.zip
ASReml-3.0-hc-W-64.zip
ASReml-3.1-cc-W-32.zip
ASReml-3.1-cc-W-64.zip

Choose the W-64 files if you have a 64bit operating system.
Otherwise choose the W-32 files.

Choose 3.0 if you just want a bug-fixed version of the current VSN released program.
Choose 3.1 if you wish to try out the new features of this version.
ASReml 3.1 is expected to run all job files prepared for ASReml 3.0.

There is limited documentation of the new features found in .htm files present in
ASReml-3_Guide_Examples.zip

Installation instructions
1) Download the relevant file and place it in a suitable place on your file system.

2) Unpack the .zip file (usually double click in Windows Explorer)

3) Typically, you will have an existing ASReml.lic file obtained from VSN International.
If it is in c:\Program Files\Common Files\VSN International\licenses
this build of ASReml should find it. If it is elsewhere, you will need to copy
your ASReml.lic file into the bin (binx64) folder.

4) If you wish to run this ASReml from a command prompt, you will need to include
its PATH in the the PATH Environment variable
(under Start - Settings - Control Panel - Advanced - Environment variables).
Most users will use either ASReml-W (distributed by VSN with the release version; just
reset the PATH in the program tools) or Context (from www.contexteditor.org, which also
allows specifying the program PATH. )
