Could someone write an easy-to-understand, step-by-step guide on how to install Grace (the WYSIWYG 2D plotting tool) on Windows 7 64-bit? I've read a lot and I still don't understand how to install it.

Please post the exact problem and how far you got. – Felix Dombek Dec 12 '11 at 18:11
From a quick read, you'll need something like Xming installed before you can even think about getting Grace working. – Rob Dec 12 '11 at 18:24

From the README.packages file on the Grace FTP server:


Grace package is now a part of the Cygwin ( distro.

You'll also probably need an xserver like Xming installed. – Rob Dec 12 '11 at 18:25

There also is a windows version called qtgrace:

Just unzip and launch bin/qtgrace.exe

It uses grace (console version) as a backend. Xmgrace is the wysiwyg version on linux side that also uses grace as a backend. Qtgrace is a native windows application that uses QT in similar fashion than Xmgrace uses X and motif.
