 * For any of the above, be sure to get the latest version, and the py27 variant if/when available.
16 3 Dan Smith
 * If you are on 64-bit Windows, be sure to either download the 32 or 64-bit variants of each of the above. They must all match bitness in order to work together.

h2. Clone the repository
45 1 Dan Smith
46 2 Dan Smith
The next step is to download a copy of the repository. This is done from the command-line, and will create a @chirp.hg/@ directory in your current directory. Thus, you should change to the place you want it to be first. For example:
47 1 Dan Smith
48 2 Dan Smith
<pre>
49 2 Dan Smith
C:\Users\Foo> cd \MyWorkspace
50 2 Dan Smith
C:\MyWorkspace> hg clone http://d-rats.com/hg/chirp.hg
51 2 Dan Smith
</pre>
52 1 Dan Smith
53 1 Dan Smith
h2. Run chirp
54 1 Dan Smith
55 2 Dan Smith
Python should be in your search path from the install, but if not, put it in the system PATH environment variable. Once you do that, you should be able to enter the directory that was created in the clone step above, and run chirpw with python:
56 1 Dan Smith
57 2 Dan Smith
<pre>
58 2 Dan Smith
C:\MyWorkspace> cd chirp.hg
59 2 Dan Smith
C:\MyWorkspace\chirp.hg> python chirpw
60 2 Dan Smith
</pre>
