Installation Instructions

DAAT is distributed as a self-extracting (SFX) zip file that will extract the contents to the specified destination directory and create start menu shortcuts to the application. The SFX installer can be downloaded from http://code.google.com/p/daat/downloads/list. There are no requirements to use the SFX installer as DAAT is a portable application and will run once extracted or copied to a folder with write access on a Windows system. The two different deployment options are explained in more detail below.

Note: These instructions were created using DAAT 1.0.0 Preview Release, new versions will follow the same procedures unless noted.

SFX Install
Once downloaded, run the installer (daat-1.0.0.exe) to start the process. It should look similar to the image below.
