GMS version 6.5 and earlier initially runs in a DEMO mode, which means file saving and printing are disabled. GMS version 7.x and newer do not include a DEMO mode. Corps of Engineers employees may obtain a password to use the full version. Please see GMS Product Registration for information about registering GMS.
Tutorial files for GMS v7.0 and earlier are found in the "tutfiles" folder where GMS was installed (usually C:\Program Files\GMS 7.0\tutfiles). For GMS v7.1 and newer, the default location for the tutorials is the user's documents folder (usually C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\GMS 7.1\Tutorials). If you do not have administrative rights on your computer and require IT personnel to install GMS v7.1 or newer version, the tutorials may not be installed to the user's documents folder due to user account permissions. If this occurs, download the GMS v7.1 or newer version tutorial files separately and extract the files to the desired location.
