Then, using your Windows disk explorer or any other tools on other Operating Systems, look for a file named "ancestris.exe" (for Windows) or "ancestris" for Linux and Mac. This file is under a sub-directory (named "bin") of ancestris main directory (named "ancestris"), so /ancestris/bin/ancestris or ancestris\bin\ancestris.exe
For Windows users, if you unzip the file under your directory named "C:\My_Favorites_Programs", you will have ancestris executable under "C:\My_Favorites_Programs\ancestris\bin\ancestris.exe".
If you're running Linux, if you unzip the file under your home directory named "/home/my_name", you will have ancestris executable under "/home/my_name/ancestris/bin".
To run the program, you can use your files navigator, and you click on the file named "ancestris" you've just found in the sub directory "bin", or you open a terminal, you go to the place where you found the file ancestris and you fire it up. So to jump in the right sub directory :
and you type : ./ancestris (don't forget to add the dot and the slash before the word ancestris...)
