The installation is straightforward, you have to do the usual next-next-finish procedure and before that: configure a launching script and environment like here: Slip_configuration_on_linux_host. Also necessary to do some extra tweaks in the C:\XAPPEAL3 folder, create X0.HOS file with content:

DISPLAY=192.168.7.2:0 xeyes -geometry 150x150-151+151 &
