Install Archon on a Laptop

Postby dkfrancis » Wed Jul 18, 2012 1:43 pm

I couldn't find a tutorial that will guide to install Archon on a laptop and make the laptop a server. Can anyone guide me and point me to the right direction? The laptop that I'm planning on using has Windows 7 PRO and has over 3GB of ram and plenty of HDD space.

Thank you.

There is no tutorial available to help guide you for this type of installation of Archon. It is strongly recommended that you do not try to install Archon on a single stand alone machine. Such a process is fairly labor intensive and complex. scott

As scott said, we don't recommend this. But, If you really want to try it, you can install xampp on your laptop, the follow the install instructions on our website.
