For Windows 10 installation
If you have a trouble launching CellDesigner after installation,
* Copy "msvcp110.dll" and "msvcr100.dll" which is located under
"C:\Program Files (x86)\CellDesigner4.4\Microsoft.CV110.CRT"
to "C:\Program Files (x86)\CellDesigner4.4\"
For MacOSX Users (El Capitan above)
Please use Java 6 above 1.6.0_65-b14-466, which is downloadable from http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572
(For Mojave users: 2019/April)
The above workaround does not apply to Mojave. We are preparing the new installer for Mojave.
The current version of CellDesigner requires Java2 Runtime Environment (JRE1.6.0 or later).
- Windows 32bit, 64bit*
- MacOSX (10.6 or later) 32 bit, 64bit**
- Linux with X Window System ( Fedora Core 4 or later) 32bit, 64bit***
*We have tested 32bit version on Windows XP and 64bit version on Windows 7.
**On Mac OS X 10.6 or later, Java 1.6.0 or later is required.
***On Linux platform, due to the version of native libraries, Fedora Core 4 or later is recommended; some problems will arise if you use other than these.
The installer for Windows and Linux includes JRE (Java Runtime Environment 1.6), so you do not have to install Java before your installation.
JRE is not included in Mac OS X Mavericks, so CellDesigner will ask you to install JRE (or JDK) on your system. Please follow the instruction from CellDesigner.
If SBW and its modules have already been installed, these modules will be available from CellDesigner. Especially time evolving simulation of the model being edited can be performed.
If you want to use Copasi (http://www.copasi.org) as an alternative solver on Windows, please download "Visual Studio 2010 runtime (Visual C++ 2010 runtime)" to use Copasi from CellDesigner.
1. Install SBW and SBW modules
If you are interested in time evolving simulation and analysis on biochemical networks, we recommend you to install the Systems Biology Workbench (SBW) and SBW-powered software before you install CellDesigner.
To install SBW and SBW-powered software, follow their installation instructions.
If you would like to use CellDesigner alone right now, you can postpone this step until you need simulation and/or analysis.
- (*) As of Feb 2012, SBW 2.9.0 is available for Windows, MacOSX and Linux. For details on SBW information: http://sbw.sourceforge.net/
- (**) Note: In case you have installed SBW 2.7.6 or later, and you encounter an error while installing CellDesigner, there might be a possibility that the C++ Broker is up which prevents CellDesigner to start. Please try to kill the broker using the Task Manager, or restart your system before you resume the CellDesigner installation.

Download the one for your operating system and follow instructions provided in 00READEME.txt or Startup Guide to install CellDesigner for each environment.
