            guimaker is a command line tool for creating graphical user interfaces
(GUI) in Scilab.

The GUIs are based on the available uicontrol objects in Scilab. 

guimaker() can be used either for generating GUIs within programs, or it can be
used for creating Scilab source code which serve as a starting point for
more advanced programming of GUIs.

menumaker() has been added as a frontend for the scilab command uimenus(). Its
purpose is to add systems of menus to a figure using a similar input definition
as guimaker. 

gui2maker() creates an input file to guibuilder (external toolbox) from an
existing graphical user interface (gui). A graphical user interface created with
for example guimaker can be easily ported to guibuilder for further manual

Changes in version 1.9:
* Minor adjustments to work with Scilab version 5.5.
* Updated and added some demos.
Note that new uicontrol styles like layer, image, spinner, tab and table have
not been tested.

I am a begginer of Scilab. I install Scilab 5.5.0 and guimaker.

When I start Scilab, I got following message on my Scilab Console;

Startup execution:
  loading initial environment

Start Apifun
	Load macros
	Load help
	Type "help apifun_overview" for quick start.

START Control Design Using Root Locus GUI
	Load macros
	Load help
	Type "rldesign" to start the GUI

Start regtools
 guimaker is not installed - trying to install.   
 Installed apifun - restart of Scilab is required.   
	Load macros
	Load help
	Load demos

Start guimaker
	Load macros
	Load help
	Load demos

May I ask you help? I would like to guimaker on my PC. (Windows 7)
