See https://sourceforge.net/p/gnv/wiki/InstallingGNVPackages/ for the most up to date generic installation information.
If the HP GNV kit is installed, make sure that the [vms$common.gnv.bin] directory exists. If it does not, it means that you have not run the mandatory GNV startup file and the installation will not work properly.
The files are in ZIP archives. Use the commonly available UNZIP utility to unzip them.
Copies of unzip are at ftp://ftp.encompasserve.org/
Please read the release notes for more detailed information about the post installation procedure.
If you install to a different disk than the system disk, the release notes will be in the [vms$common.syshlp] on that disk. The gnv$coreutils_startup.com file will also be in the [vms$common.sys$startup] directory of that disk.
malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
DoeveR August 07 2017 Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
