Installing the X-13-Graph Batch Windows Interface:

Users with older versions of Windows may need to install the Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 Link to a non-federal Web site to use the interface. If it is not found on your computer, you will be prompted to download and install it when you attempt to install the interface.

To install the program, first unzip the file to your C:\ drive. The program will not work if saved to a network drive. This zip folder contains two files, the program executable x13GraphBatch.exe and its configuration file, x13GraphBatch.exe.config, as well as a subdirectory appl containing the necessary data sets and catalogs for the X-13-Graph SAS program to run. To start the program, double click on x13GraphBatch.exe.
