Installing FormulaOne compiler follows common installation
practices: The installation program allows the user to select the destination and the
components to install and creates desktop and menu shortcuts accordingly. Once the
compiler is installed, it can be uninstalled by using the Control Panel "Add or Remove Programs".
The following screenshots were taken during the installation of F1 compiler on a Windows XP machine. The installed version of compiler was Release 41rD. Different versions of Windows or FormulaOne compilers may produce slightly different screenshots.
The very first Setup screen depends on the Windows version. On versions that support multiple users
you will see a page prompting you to select between "Install just for me" and "Install for
anyone using this computer". On versions that do not support multiple users you will not see this page at all. If you
choose to install for the current user only ("Install just for me"), only the current user desktop and start menu will contain
shortcuts to the installed FormulaOne IDE.
To proceed to the next screen, click "Next".
If you already have a previous version of FormulaOne Compiler IDE installed,
make sure the IDE is not running at this point.
Close the IDE and click "Next":
Next you are presented with EULA (End User License Agreement). In order to proceed with the installation, you must agree to the EULA terms and click on "I Agree".
Once you have agreed to the EULA terms, you can select the FormulaOne compiler IDE components you want to install.
We recommend you go with the defaults and select all components. As you can see, the required disk space is fairly
small, so there really is no compelling reason not to install them all.
Once the components are selected, click "Next" to continue.
One of the FormulaOne components that must be installed is Multi Precision Library. FormulaOne uses
GMP ("GNU Multiprecision Library". The setup program contains several GMP binaries compiled for various popular
CPUs. To achieve the best results, setup installs one of them as the library to be used by the IDE. This is done
based on the detected CPU.
Once the proper GMP library is selected, click "Next" to continue.
The final piece of information the Setup program needs is the install destination.
Here you have the opportunity to override the default destination with the destination of your choice.
Once you have specified the destination click "Install" to continue, this will start the actual installation process.
Once the installation is completed, you can choose to review the actual files copied and
shortcuts created by clicking on "Show details".
Click "Next" to continue to the final setup screen.
The final screen allows you review the Release Notes and/or run the F1 IDE automatically after
the the setup has finished.
Click "Finish" to finish the setup program.
At this point FormulaOne IDE is installed on the target computer. Once the compiler is installed, it can be uninstalled by using the Control Panel "Add or Remove Programs" or using the "Uninstall" menu item in the FormulaOne IDE Start Menu. Uninstalling will remove all shortucts and all files that were created by the Setup program.
