SPM/Installation on Windows


PreambleEdit

Installing SPM on Windows 32 bit (XP, Vista, 7) should be relatively straightforward. Common pitfalls can be found in the description of the 64bit Windows installation.

SPM12Edit

InstallationEdit

You might have to install the VC++ 2005 and 2008 Redistributable Packages (vcredist_x86.exe) from Microsoft:

SPM8Edit

InstallationEdit

  • Download spm8.zip and its updates spm8_updates_rxxxx.zip
  • Unzip spm8.zip in a folder of your choice, such as C:\spm\spm8, and unzip spm8_updates_rxxxx.zip on top of it so that newer files overwrite existing files.
  • Start MATLAB and add SPM into your path, either using File > Set Path > Add Folder... or typing
>> addpath C:\spm\spm8

in MATLAB's workspace.

  • Launch SPM by typing
>> spm

CompilationEdit

Precompiled MEX files (*.mexw32) are provided with SPM8 and you shouldn't need to recompile them by yourself.

See Compilation of SPM8 MEX files on Windows if needed.

SPM5Edit

InstallationEdit

  • Download spm5.zip.
  • Unzip spm5.zip in a folder of your choice, such as C:\spm\spm5.
  • Start MATLAB and add SPM into your path, either using File > Set Path > Add Folder... or typing
>> addpath C:\spm\spm5

in MATLAB's workspace.

  • Launch SPM by typing
>> spm

CompilationEdit

Precompiled MEX files (*.mexw32) are provided with SPM5 and you shouldn't need to recompile them by yourself.

See Compilation of SPM5 MEX files on Windows if needed.

SPM2Edit

InstallationEdit

  • Download spm2.tar.gz and its updated MEX files SPM2_R2007a_XP_MEX.zip
  • Unzip spm2.tar.gz in a folder of your choice, such as C:\spm\spm2, and unzip SPM2_R2007a_XP_MEX.zip on top of it so that newer files overwrite existing files.
  • Start MATLAB and add SPM into your path, either using File > Set Path > Add Folder... or typing
>> addpath C:\spm\spm2

in MATLAB's workspace.

  • Launch SPM by typing
>> spm

CompilationEdit

Precompiled MEX files (*.mexw32) are provided with SPM2 and you shouldn't need to recompile them by yourself.
