About licenses

Quick Start for OSGeo4W Users

  1. Download the  32bit or  64bit OSGeo4W network installer (previous  32bit only installer)
  2. Run the installer.
  3. Select Express Install, and Next.
  4. Pick one or more packages to install, and Next.
  5. The selected packages and their required subpackages will be downloaded and installed automatically.

Notes:

  • Step 2 must be run on a computer with internet access as the installer downloads individual packages as needed. You may also need to enable your software firewall to allow the installer to have outbound access.
  • 32bit/64bit don't contain the same set of packages/versions  (compare) (purple is 32 bit only)
  • Don't blindly do a full install in Advanced mode. Some components require third party additions that need to be installed manually (see the wiki page of the package). Without the additons the components might renderer the installation unuseable.

After installation:

  • Desktop applications will be found in Start -> All Programs -> OSGeo4W
  • Commandline applications will be available in the OSGeo4W Shell command window.
  • Web applications will be available at  http://localhost/
