There are two ways to get this program: As a standalone Windows installer, or as a zipfile, which is platform independent (that is, you can use it on Linux and probably MacOS X as well as on Windows if you have the prerequisites installed).
This is the easiest option. Just download this file:
After you download it, just double-click the file to install the program. You'll find a rather plain icon in the Start menu under "New Century Rocketry."
After ensuring you have the two prerequisite packages installed (see below), just download this file:
Unpack the zipfile; you'll find a single folder. Within are four files. The file "rockets.py" is the one you need to double-click to start the program. If you are using Windows, find the green "snake" icon named "rockets" and double-click it.
First, you'll need python. If you are running Windows, you can get the download here:
Next, you need pysqlite. If you are running Windows, you can get a download here:
Linux users will almost certainly already have Python installed.
If you are using Linux, you'll need to install the appropriate pysqlite package for your distribution. For Fedora Core, the needed software is called "python-sqlite2", so you can log in as root (or use su) and then type:
# yum install python-sqlite2
... answer a few prompts, and you're good to go. For other Linux versions, well, you're on your own, as I can't help you.
