Installing Mantid on Windows

The steps below will guide you through installation of Mantid on Windows:

  1. Download the latest version of Mantid from our website.
  2. Find the version of Mantid you previously downloaded. By default, it will automatically download to your downloads folder, which is located at: C:\Users\$USER\Downloads where $USER is your Windows username.
  3. Double click the installer and click Run.
  4. Go through the steps of the installer. Selecting Next at each stage. The default settings are recommended.
  5. Once you click Install the installation process will begin, and inform you when it is complete.
  6. That's it! Once the installation process is complete a MantidPlot icon will appear on your desktop, and in your start menu.

Note: the installer will look for the drive with the most free disk space, which may include external devices. Installing and uninstalling on these devices is extremely slow, and not recommended.
