Installation Guidelines: Windows - End-User

This is a very common use case for Emergency Management workers in the field with poor connectivity to central servers.

It can be run on a Laptop or even on a USB stick.

Install Sahana-Eden

This installer is for End-Users:

The installer contains both - a Portable version (for USB pendrives and external harddrives) and a Local version to be installed on the built-in harddrive. Sahana Eden requires a minimum of ~ 80MB free space, although more is recommended. NOTE: PDF-Support (reportlab) is currently broken in the installer-version. If you need it you have to install Python and the dependencies and get the current Eden-version from the VCS, not recommended for unexperienced users.
