Thanks for the response.  I wanted to further ask, this page

says "When you install the first time, you only need the latest full version."

Does this mean that you do not need to install any other software?  This can be installed into windows without any other software needed?

Thanks very much for developing this package.

There are now two different easy ways to install on Windows,
pointed to from here:

We are always happy to take bug reports, but there is no way to
investigate or fix problems that are described so vaguely.

I think that we are doing OK at the moment--we have a couple of
very helpful folks on our mailing lists who build PSPP on
Windows, and report resulting bugs, on a regular basis--but in
the long run the viability of PSPP on Windows will depend on
finding some developers who work on PSPP under Windows on a
regular basis.  None of the current development team uses Windows
all that much.
