Installing Wing IDE
Note: The installation location for Wing IDE is referred to as WINGHOME. On OS X this is the name of Wing's .app folder.
Install Wing IDE by running the downloaded executable. Wing's files are installed by default in C:\Program Files\Wing IDE 5.1, but this location may be modified during installation. Wing will also create a User Settings Directory in the location appropriate for your version of Windows. This is used to store preferences and other settings.
The Windows installer supports a /silent command line option that uses the default options, including removing any prior install of version 5.1 of Wing IDE. If a prior install is removed, a dialog with a progress bar will appear. You can also use a /dir=<dir name> option to specify an alternate installation directory.
Use the RPM, Debian package, or tar file installer as appropriate for your system type. Installation from packages is at /usr/lib/wingide5 or at the selected location when installing from the tar file. Wing will also create a User Settings Directory in ~/.wingide5, which is used to store preferences and other settings.
For more information, see the Linux installation details.
