License: Free use and redistribution under the terms of the End User License Agreement – Anaconda® Individual Edition.
Operating system: Windows 8 or newer, 64-bit macOS 10.13+, or Linux, including Ubuntu, RedHat, CentOS 6+, and others.
If your operating system is older than what is currently supported, you can find older versions of the Anaconda installers in our archive that might work for you. See Using Anaconda on older operating systems for version recommendations.
System architecture: Windows- 64-bit x86, 32-bit x86; MacOS- 64-bit x86; Linux- 64-bit x86, 64-bit Power8/Power9.

On Windows, macOS, and Linux, it is best to install Anaconda for the local user, which does not require administrator permissions and is the most robust type of installation. However, if you need to, you can install Anaconda system wide, which does require administrator permissions.

Installing on Windows
Download the Anaconda installer.

Double click the installer to launch.


To prevent permission errors, do not launch the installer from the Favorites folder.


If you encounter issues during installation, temporarily disable your anti-virus software during install, then re-enable it after the installation concludes. If you installed for all users, uninstall Anaconda and re-install it for your user only and try again.
