 +==== Windows XP ====
 +
 +Install Unison on Windows to syncronize data between Windows and Linux using SSH
 +
 +
 +=== Requirements ===
 +
 +
 +Software Packages:
 +
 +  - gtk-runtime-2.12.1-rev-b.exe
 +  - ssh.exe
 +  - Unison-2.27.57-Gtk.zip
 +  - Unison-ssh.zip
 +
 +Download Software Packages from Internet or from our local Repository!
 +
 +=== Installation ===
 +
 +== Install all 4 Packages ==
 +
 +  - Run gtk-runtime-2.12.1-rev-b.exe by default installed in C:\Program Files\Common Files\GTK\2.0
 +  - Copy ssh.exe in C:\WINDOWS\
 +  - Create folder Unison in C:\Program Files\ and extract Unison-2.27.57 Gtk+.exe, if you want to use the graphical interface to the newly created folder
 +  - Extract from unison-ssh.zip the file plink.exe and place it in C:\WINDOWS\
 +
 +== Add bin gtk-runtime to PATH ==
 +
 +  - Select My Computer -> Properties -> Advanced
 +  - Environment Variables -> System Variables: Click on Path and press Edit
 +  - Go to the end of the line and insert :C:\Program Files\Common Files\GTK\2.0\bin
 +  - Press 3 x OK
 +
 +Test if Unison works by double clicking Unison-2.27.57 Gtk+.exe in C:\Program Files\Unison
 +
 +Unison configuration files are stored in C:​\Documents and Settings\username\.unison. Initially there
 +should be a configuration file default.prf there. Prepare/​Modify a configuration file to fit your needs.
 +
 +If the Unison version on your Server is different you can use the -addversionno. For this create a batch file e.g. sync.bat
 +in the C:\Program Files\Unison directory:
 +
 +snyc.bat
 +
 +  "​C:​\Program Files\Unison\Unison-2.27.57 Gtk+.exe"​ -addversionno
 +
 +Next create from the batch file a shortcut to the Desktop if you wish.
