To learn what is new after upgrading from an older version, see the version history. Previous versions of OVITO are still available for download here. Further installation instructions are given in the manual. The ZIP download package for Windows requires the Visual C++ runtime libraries to be installed on the system.
- Windows Vista/7/8/10
- Linux (Kernel 2.6.32 or newer)
- MacOS X 10.8 or newer
OVITO requires OpenGL 2.1 or higher. Please make sure that you have the newest graphics driver installed. Note that the default Microsoft driver installed with Windows does not support OpenGL. Please install your hardware vendor's graphics driver instead for best compatibility and performance.
Note to users of RHEL and similar Linux distributions:
In case program startup fails with the error message "ovito: /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6: version `CXXABI_1.3.8' not found", please download this version of libstdc++.so and copy the two .so files in the lib/ovito/ subdirectory of the OVITO installation. They are required, because the existing version of libstdc++ on your system is not compatible with the OVITO binary.
