-====== Installation ====== 
- 
-===== Installer Packages ===== 
- 
-SOFA Statistics has installer packages for: 
- 
-{{:​help:​three_os_smaller2.gif|}} 
- 
-  * **Windows**\\ To install and make this work on Windows the user has to be an administrator (unless it is a very old version of Windows).\\ ​ 
-    * Right-click the program icon or Start Menu entry. 
-    * Select "Run as Administrator"​\\ [[http://​www.reactiondesign.com/​support/​help/​help_installing/​windows7/​ | Installing as Administrator on Windows]] 
-  Once the software is installed then the user can be demoted back down to a non-admin account and the software works with no problems.\\ (covers XP, Vista, and Windows 7).\\ A video of installation is here\\ [[http://​www.sofastatistics.com/​videos.php#​win_install |{{:​help:​play_button.gif|}}]]\\ [[http://​www.sofastatistics.com/​videos.php#​win_install | Windows Installation]]\\ {{:​help:​win_installer_packages_new.jpg|}}\\ \\ The installer lets you skip adding all the extra packages if you have already installed them in a previous installation of SOFA Statistics.\\ \\ {{:​help:​win_install_extra_packages.jpg|}} 
-  * **Ubuntu** deb package (covers Ubuntu and Linux Mint).\\ {{:​help:​ubuntu_installer.jpg|}} 
-  * **Mac** dmg package (covers Leopard and Snow Leopard)\\ {{:​help:​sofa_mac_installer.jpg|}}\\ The Mac installer, like the Windows installer, lets you opt out of installing some packages e.g. Python if you already have a suitable version installed\\ {{:​help:​mac_installation_options.jpg|}} 
- 
-If you have another Linux distro you should also be able to get SOFA running using a special installer script in the tar.gz file.  See [[http://​www.sofastatistics.com/​wiki/​doku.php?​id=help:​linux_installation | Non-Ubuntu/​Debian Linux Installation]]

- 
-===== Installing a Newer Version ===== 
- 
-This should Just Work ;-).  The only quirk is that SOFA might rename your existing default_report.htm file to something like default_report_pre_version_x.htm to make sure everything new you make works in the new system. ​ Newer versions of SOFA Statistics sometimes upgrade the underlying Javascript that displays charts in reports and existing charts may get broken by Javascript changes. ​ This should become less of a practical issue over time as SOFA stabilises. 
- 
-===== Linux Mint Menu Issue ===== 
- 
-For some mysterious reason, the SOFA Statistics shortcut (under Other) doesn'​t work.  But there is a simple workaround. ​ Just drag the icon onto the desktop. That icon will work. There seems to be something a little quirky about the Mint Menu.
