AliWin - A GUI by Edwin C. Hall for Aliqueit by Mikael Klasson

This is a Free Program, provided AS IS with no warranty - Use at your own risk!

Note: This program is only for use with Aliqueit versions prior to 1.10
For newer versions see AliWin2

Current AliWin version: .20100526

Files available: binary - - source - - zip of both

The help file is self-contained in the source and displays as several Messages on screen. The current help screens are these:

Starting out - Creating a working directory

There is no "Installation" of this program, per se, but to use it, several steps must be manually performed. Currently, AliWin is only designed to be used with all directly associated files within the same directory. That directory is your choice, but for this set of instructions I will use C:\MathWork\aliqueit. If you wish to use a different directory, simply substitute your name(s) in place of C:\MathWork\aliqueit. Following are two ways to create your directory:

Note: Due to write restrictions with newer versions of Windows, it is suggested you create your directory somewhere outside of the Program Files directory.

Now that the directory has been created you will need to copy all the files into it (and subdirectories) from their various sources. Of course, AliWin will be available here, but all the others have separate locations. I will try to provide some links here to the packages I downloaded to work with AliWin. But, since I am not changing anything in any of the packages, there should be no need to use the same versions I am. The only restriction I can think of immediately, is in the names of those files AliWin directly works with. Specifically, those are all the files on buttons on the left of the AliWin window, aliqueit.exe and wget.exe. All others should be taken care of within the other files.

The next step - Adding programs

If the above proceedure was followed, including using the ggnfs directory, the aliqueit directory should now hold a ggnfs directory and the following thirteen files:


Note: If you compiled AliWin from source, there will be several additional files.

The ggnfs directory, if used, will now hold 27 files, which will include all the ggnfs files, except, plus the msieve.exe file.

First Time Run of AliWin

Now that all the files have been loaded, it's finally time to run AliWin. This can be done by simply double-clicking the AliWin.exe icon (or filename).

An "As Is" acceptance box pops up and must be answered Yes to continue.

A message box should appear notifiying you that there is no Alinum.txt file found. For now, that's OK - we'll make one later. Acknowledge by clicking OK.

AliWin finally pops up with a numberless window and we can start configuring everything:

I will now turn you loose to play with AliWin...
