Downloading and Installation Instructions

1.  Download the geotechnical analysis software files from the Prentice Hall website by clicking here.  Save this self-extracting .zip file to your C: drive.

2. Double clicking on this file will unzip the files and save them to a new folder, "geotechsoft."

2.  Using Windows Explorer, open the "geotechsoft" folder and double-click on setup.exe.  The setup routine will then decompress the files and place them in a permanent folder on your hard drive.  By default, the files are placed in c:\program files\geotechnical analysis software, but you may choose to place them in some other folder.  The setup routine also places an item "Geotechnical Analysis Software" under the Start button - Programs.

3.  Click on the Windows Start button, then go to Programs and to Geotechnical Analysis Software.  This will start the software.  Alternatively, you can use Windows Explorer and double click on c:\program files\geotechnical analysis software\geotechnical analysis software.exe.

4.  Delete the "geotechsoft" folder created in Step 2.

5.  The first time you run the software, you will be asked to input a keyword from the book.  This will complete the installation process.  Then follow the instructions on the screen to reach the main menu.
