2. Supported Platforms


Supported platforms periodically change due to any of a number of factors outside the control of the VisIt project including demand, developer access, technology obsolescence, and majority stakeholder requirements.

The platforms upon which the majority of contributors regularly develop and run VisIt and for which the resources exist to provide full support are determined primarily by our host organization. For these platforms, we are able to reproduce bugs, test bug-fixes, develop work-arounds and in general provide the highest quality support services. These platforms are…

  • Redhat, TOSS, Ubuntu
  • Windows 7, 8 and 10
  • macOS 10.15

We do make an effort to provide pre-compiled binaries as well as perform minimal testing for Centos, Debian, Fedora. However, because we do not yet routinely develop or test on these platforms, we are not able to provide the same level of support as we do for Redhat, TOSS, Ubuntu.

Finally, for other platforms, building VisIt from sources is an option. We do try to be responsive to issues building VisIt from sources.
