Step 3: Download the Workshop Sample Files

After the program is installed and updated the sample files should be installed to the c:\xps\workshop folder by executing the self extracting zip file "modules_2020.exe". This file is a self extracting .ZIP file containing all of the workshop example source material.

Save and proceed by installing to the default directory: c:\xps\workshop. Note: You may need to overwrite the default location.

Step 4: Computer Configuration

A few changes to the computers will help the use of XPSWMM for the training period.

  • Use a minimum of 1280x1024 or 1280x768 or 1280x800 in order to yield enough space for the work environment and closely match the instructor's projection.
  • In Windows Explorer: turn off the option to hide file extensions of known file types. Extensions of XPSWMM files are very important and they will need to be visible.
