      Hi,

      If i remember correctly, gstat is installed under R (a statistical
      software which is free from the internet - and yes there is a version
      which is under Windows). If you get R, you will discover how to
      install gstat package.

      Simply open R, go to Packages tab, and choose "Install packages
      from CRAN" (which is the simplest way and you will get a list with
      loads of packages including gstat, but you need "life" connection to
      internet) or "Install packages from local zip files". It is up to you.

      On CRAN you will find also the pdf. documentation which is
      absolutely necessary to read in order to be able to use gstat.

      R is very powerful but it has a very steep learning curve. I hope this
      helps.

      Monica

        Dear Snehamoy,

        the information you provide is very brief -- you don't specify which
        file you
        downloaded from which site. To complete the information in Monica her
        email:

        - gstat comes in two flavours: either as a stand-alone program, or as a
        package for R (or S-Plus); both provide roughly the same functionality.
        I had to start from scratch, I'd prefer the R package, because R provides
        so much more when you want to analyse, model and visualise data.
        Visit http://www.r-project.org/ , download R, and from within R
        you can download the gstat package from CRAN.

        - if you want to run the stand-alone program in a windows environment,
        find out how to open a command window; then, find out about the "cd"
        command to change directories (try: help cd); unzip the gstat zip file, the
        gnuplot zip file and the data in the directory where you want to work,
        and go ahead. Oh, and read the gstat manual.

        Best regards,
