There is an easy (1) and a proper way (2) of installing Quanty on your windows machine
If you want to create figures using Quanty scripts you may want install gnuplot on windows You can install the windows version of gnuplot (1) or make use of linux type environments like cygwin (2)
Gnuplot files can now also be executed from within the Quanty files. In the (Linux-)Tutorial you will find lines running the gnuplot scripts, like: os.execute(“gnuplot XASSpec.gnuplot ; ps2pdf XASSpec.ps ; ps2eps XASSpec.ps ; mv XASSpec.eps temp.eps ; eps2eps temp.eps XASSpec.eps ; rm temp.eps”). The command “os.execute(“gnuplot XASSpec.gnuplot”)” will now run properly on windows and return you the plot as *.ps file. But note that the remaining commands (ps2pdf, …) will be ignored (and return a warning), as they are usually not defined on windows machines (but you may find gnuplot commands allowing you to create *.pdf as well).
After installation you can run Quanty within the Command shell of windows. You can open the command shell with the key combination: “windows_key + r” then enter “cmd”. Naturally you can use any other terminal you prefer. Within the terminal change to the folder containing the Quanty file you like to execute and enter “Quanty.exe filename.Quanty”
Once this command works it is time to go to the basic examples in the documentation pages and learn how to set up a Quanty file. Don't forget to download the examples http://www.quanty.org/QuantyDoc.zip and run them on your own.
