Installing the Program
Installing the Program
To begin installation, simply click on the “EViews13Installer(64-bit).exe” executable program file.
First, you will be prompted to read and accept the License Agreement, and to designate a directory into which you wish to install your copy of EViews. If you wish to change the default installation directory, click on Browse and navigate to the desired directory. Click on Next to continue.
Next, you will be asked to enter a name and serial number. You should have been provided with a 24-character serial number as part of your purchase. Those of you who have obtained your copy of EViews as part of a Volume License agreement should obtain a serial number from your license administrator. Enter the serial number and your name as you wish it to appear in your copy of EViews, and click on Next.
Select the components you wish to install and click on Next.
Lastly, you will be asked about setting up a Start Menu folder containing shortcuts to the EViews example files folder and the EViews program executable. Clicking on Next starts the actual installation of files onto your computer.
You should note that as part of the installation procedure, EViews will prompt you to register files with the extensions “.WF1”, “.WF2”, “.PRG”, “.EDB”, “.AIPZ”, and “.UIPZ”.
If these extensions are already registered, possibly by an earlier version of EViews, you will be prompted to allow EViews 13 to override the existing registration. Registering the extensions is not required, but doing so will allow you to double-click on files with these extensions to launch EViews.
Once the installation procedure is completed, click on Finish. If you have elected to create an EViews shortcut, the EViews Start Menu folder will open. To launch EViews, double-click the EViews 13 icon. Subsequently, you may launch EViews using the shortcut on your desktop or by selecting EViews from the Start Menu shortcuts, if present, by double-clicking on EViews registered file types, or by navigating to the EViews installation directory and double-clicking on the EViews icon.
