Install

Installation and start up Pinguno IDE:

  1. Using 7-Zip, extract Pinguino-X4-EasyPack-Win32-RevNNN-vNN-yyyy-mm.7z to the arbitrary folder(N,y,m is number or string). It's highly recommended extracting this archive file to the folder which name dose not have spaces or multibyte strings.
  2. Move the x4-easy-revNNN folder to i.e. C:\x4-easy-revNNN. (Because gpasm.exe can't recognize the long folder name.)
  3. Execute C:\x4-easy-revNNN\pinguino.exe,or C:\x4-easy-revNNN\pinguino_start.bat

THAT'S ALL!!

But... :D
