Installing on Windows

System Install

Download the .msi version of Dr. Memory and launch it to run the Dr. Memory installer. The installer automatically adds Dr. Memory to the PATH for the current user, to simplify use of the tool (however, currently on Windows 10 the PATH is not propagated: manually applying an empty change to the PATH, or rebooting, will update the PATH for newly created shells). It also places a Dr. Memory icon on the desktop if you would like to run your applications under Dr. Memory by dragging and dropping.

If you already have a prior version of Dr. Memory installed, uninstall it before installing a new version. The uninstaller can be run either from its Start Menu entry or from the "Add or Remove Programs" dialog box in Control Panel.

Local Install

Download the .zip version of Dr. Memory. Extract the files from the .zip archive into a directory of your choice. Now either place the bin subdirectory of the Dr. Memory directory structure on your PATH, or invoke Dr. Memory via its full path.

To edit your PATH to include Dr. Memory, from the "Start" menu, open the "Control Panel". Click on "System". Then click on "Advanced system settings". Say "Yes" to the User Account Control message. Choose the "Advanced" tab and click on "Environment Variables". In the top box, under User Variables for your username, click on "PATH", then click on "Edit". Assuming you unzipped Dr. Memory into "C:\INSTALL", go to the end and add ";C:\INSTALL\DrMemory-Windows-X.X.X-X\bin" (with the X's replaced with the version you installed, of course). Note that the semicolon (;) is important! After editing your PATH, you should restart your Cygwin or cmd shell.
