2.1.3 Installation of PP3 itself

When TeX and Ghostscript are in the right place, you finish the installation by unpacking the PP3 ZIP file and copying its content in the proper directories:

  1. Copy pp3.exe to an arbitrary directory that is in your PATH.
  2. Copy all the other files to one single arbitrary directory. Then set the environment variable PP3DATA to this directory.

For the sake of simplicity, I recommend to copy everything to C:\Programs\pp3 and to set your PATH environment variable to

     old PATH;C:\Programs\pp3

and to set the PP3DATA environment variable to C:\Programs\pp3. That's it.
