19Hello Hongwei,
20
21I have started to take a look at the Kansei Genie Software  available at the location
22http://kansei.cse.ohio-state.edu/KanseiGenie/Downloads/KGCloner/packages/KG_2_0/
23and using KanseiGeni Cloning documentation found at the location
24http://kansei.cse.ohio-state.edu/KanseiGenie/Doc/cloning.php.
25
26I have some feedback.  Overall, I am not able to use the software KG_Portal_1_9_noinstall.tar.gz
27with the instructions available to use the software.  Following is a capture of the issues as I worked
28my way through the instruction and the software.
29
30The http://kansei.cse.ohio-state.edu/KanseiGenie/Downloads/KGCloner/packages/KG_2_0/
31includes a file "KG_Portal_1_9_noinstall.tar.gz".  Is software this version 1.9 or 2.0?
32
33The initial paragraph of the KanseiGeni Cloning documentation states the the instructions are
34based on the "1.0 Kansei package released March 2010."   Is this true?  Or are these
35installation instructions also applicable to the KG 2.0 package?
36
37The  KanseiGenie Cloning Documentation ( at http://kansei.cse.ohio-state.edu/KanseiGenie/Doc/cloning.php)
38has a link "Portal Cloning Documentation" pointing to the  "Kansei Genie Portal Cloning Documentation" (at
39http://kansei.cse.ohio-state.edu/KanseiGenie/Doc/cloning.php?pageName=KGPortal.html).  This page
40starts with "[Kansei 1.0 - March 2010]" which is confusing for KG2.0 and it also jumps into installation insructions
41without giving any scope or covering any prerequisites.    The Installation section instructs to execute the
42following "% ./install_portal.sh".  This script does not exist in the "KG_Portal_1_9_noinstall.tar.gz" package.
43
44After reading the page http://kansei.cse.ohio-state.edu/KanseiGenie/Doc/cloning.php?pageName=KGPortal.html,
45I eventually found the KG2.0 information.  I suggest providing an introduction to the user to give
46some indication up front that multiple versions are documented in the web page.
47
48In http://kansei.cse.ohio-state.edu/KanseiGenie/Doc/cloning.php?pageName=KGPortal.html  section
49named "[Kansei 2.0 - Autumn 2011] "  there are no explicit installation instructions.   There is mention
50about new sites modifying a Portal.ini file, but not enough information is available to make configuration
51changes.
52
53Once the KG_Portal_1_9_noinstall.tar.gz is unpacked, the version is no longer part of the restored directory.
54There is no README/INSTALL file providing direction for installation or minimally pointing to documentation
55locations (web and local php files).
56
57The kgportal/Doc directory delivers two empty directories: KanseiCloneInstallation and Videos.  Should there be
58documentation in the KanseiCloneInstallation directory?
59
60Please provide some guidance on what I should do for installation.
61
62Thank you,
63Luisa
