Dear all,

I am trying to install McStas version 2.0 on a windows laptop.
I have downloaded the file mcstas-2.0-src-win.zip<http://downloads.mcstas.org/mcstas-2.0/windows/mcstas-2.0-src-win.zip> and run the executables within this file.

If I try running a simulation from the shell 'McStas-shell-2.0' using, for example,  mcrun test.instr where 'test.instr' is an instrument file that I know to be okay I get the message;

"File "C:\mcstas-2.0\bin\mcrun.pl", line 26 use config;  SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Could someone please advise?  I have run McStas successfully in the past and really need  to get this going as quickly as possible.

Thanks in advance
