The easier way to install a binary distribution of Ellogon, that can be updated to the latest binary snapshot, is to use subversion (or TortoiseSVN). Binary distributions are uploaded frequently at SourceForge:

https://sourceforge.net/p/ellogon/code/HEAD/tree/runtime/

Windows (all versions: XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1)

The easier way to install a subversion client, is through TortoiseSVN. Please download and install TortoiseSVN from here: http://tortoisesvn.net/downloads.html.

Under Windows, it is a good idea to install applications that need to change often without an installer (such as ActiveTcl or Ellogon installed through subversion) outside the default locations C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86). The suggested installation location is any folder in the root of any drive, such as C:\TclApps\Ellogon or D:\TclApps\Ellogon. As an example, the directory C:\TclApps can be created, and then Ellogon can be checked-out by right-clicking on any empty area of this folder in Windows Explorer, and selecting "SVN Checkout..." from the menu that will appear:

Then, a new dialog will appear, which must be filled with information similar to the following screenshot:

(The values svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/ellogon/code/runtime and C:\TclApps\Ellogon have been used).

Then, pressing "OK", Ellogon will be downloaded and will be ready to be used:

You can verify that Ellogon runs, by issuing the following command:

C:\TclApps\ActiveTcl-8.6\bin\wish8.6 C:\TclApps\Ellogon\ellogon

Or, by double-clicking on the file C:\TclApps\Ellogon\ellogon.tcl.

In order to keep your Ellogon binary distribution up-to-date, you can right-click on the Ellogon folder in Windows Explorer, and select "SVN Update" from the menu that will appear.

Linux and OS X

In order to install the binary distribution from SourceForge under Linux or OS X, you can issue the following commands in a terminal:

cd /opt
sudo mkdir Ellogon
chown -R put-your-username-here:put-your-groupname-here Ellogon
cd /opt
svn checkout svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/ellogon/code/runtime Ellogon

You can verify that Ellogon runs, by issuing the following command:

/opt/ActiveTcl-8.6/bin/wish8.6 /opt/Ellogon/ellogon

In order to keep your Ellogon binary distribution up-to-date, you can use the following commands:

cd /opt/Ellogon
svn update
