12 cd C:\
13 cd D:\editors

15 2. Unpack the zip archives. This will create a new directory "vim/vim73",

16 in which all the distributed Vim files are placed. Since the directory
17 name includes the version number, it is unlikely that you overwrite
18 existing files.

23 After you unpacked the files, you can still move the whole directory tree
24 to another location.
25
26 3. Add the directory where vim.exe is to your path. The simplest is to add a
27 line to your autoexec.bat. Examples:

28 set path=%path%;C:\vim\vim73
29 set path=%path%;D:\editors\vim\vim73

34 Extra remarks:
35
36 - To avoid confusion between distributed files of different versions and your
37 own modified vim scripts, it is recommended to use this directory layout:
38 ("C:\vim" is used here as the root, replace with the path you use)
39 Your own files:
40 C:\vim\_vimrc Your personal vimrc.
41 C:\vim\_viminfo Dynamic info for 'viminfo'.
42 C:\vim\... Other files you made.
43 Distributed files:

44 C:\vim\vim73\vim.exe The Vim version 7.3 executable.
45 C:\vim\vim73\doc\*.txt The version 7.3 documentation files.
46 C:\vim\vim73\bugreport.vim A Vim version 7.3 script.
47 C:\vim\vim73\... Other version 7.3 distributed files.

48 In this case the $VIM environment variable would be set like this:
49 set VIM=C:\vim
50
51 - You can put your Vim executable anywhere else. If the executable is not
52 with the other distributed Vim files, you should set $VIM. The simplest is
53 to add a line to your autoexec.bat. Examples:
54 set VIM=c:\vim
55 set VIM=d:\editors\vim
