Install Sozi on Windows

Translations: Fran├žais, Portugu├¬s do Brasil

This page is part of the documentation for Sozi 13. As we are currently in the process of releasing Sozi 15, the content of this page is considered obsolete and will be updated soon.

If you are upgrading from version 13.01 or earlier, you should uninstall the previous version by removing all files whose names begin with sozi from C:\Program Files\Inkscape\share\extensions.

These instructions have been tested with Inkscape 0.48, Python 2.7 and PyGTK 2.24. If you are upgrading from an earlier version of Sozi, you can go directly to step 8.

  1. Install Inkscape using the Windows 32-bit installer. The default installation location is C:\Program Files\Inkscape or C:\Program Files (x86)\Inkscape
  2. Install Python 2.7. Use the default Windows 32-bit installer, not the one for x86_64. The default installation location is C:\Python27
  3. Install LXML for Python 2.7 and Windows 32-bit (win32-py2.7).
  4. Install PyGTK 2.24. Choose the all-in-one installer for Python 2.7 and Windows 32-bit (win32).
  5. Copy the folder C:\Python27 into C:\Program Files\Inkscape
  6. Rename the folder C:\Program Files\Inkscape\python as C:\Program Files\Inkscape\python26
  7. Rename the folder C:\Program Files\Inkscape\Python27 as C:\Program Files\Inkscape\python
  8. Download Sozi
  9. Unzip the archive sozi-release-[...].zip. You should get a folder named archive sozi-release-[...]. Copy the content of this folder into C:\Program Files\Inkscape\share\extensions
  10. Start or relaunch Inkscape. You should now see an item Sozi in the Extensions menu.

You can now create your first presentation.
