The installation doesn’t require a specific installation procedure, just download and unpack the package for your operating system. It will create a folder named spin-tools and inside it you can find the spinide (or spinide.exe) executable file ready to be launched from the command line or a dedicated icon on your desktop.

  • Linux
    To create a desktop icon, open a terminal / command line window, change to the spin-tools directory and type ./install.sh
  • Windows
    To create a desktop icon, open the file explorer, enter the spin-tools folder, right-click on the spinide.exe executable and select send to desktop from the pop-up menu.
