Install [loveMachine] on Windows

This has been tested on Windows XP, but should work on later systems too.

  1. If you don't have Python installed yet (and Windows don't have it by default), download and install Python 2.6 or greater from http://python.org/download/
  2. Add Python to your system path for easier use.
  3. Install SetupTools from http://pypi.python.org/pypi/setuptools and add it to your system path, too
  4. Install pip by typing the command
    easy_install pip

    . (You might not need pip since you certainly can install Selenium with easy_install, but since pip is a nicer python package manager, why not use it.

  5. Install Selenium Webdriver using pip like this:
    pip install selenium
  6. Unzip it
  7. Go into the loveMachine/webdriver directory
  8. Run it by double clicking on loveMachine.py and follow instructions.
