# Install conda
## Windows
You need at least Windows 10 with the [Windows 10 Fall Creator update](, released October 2017.
* Check that the Windows Subsytem for Linux is enabled: open "Control Panel" -> "Programs and Features" -> "Turn Windows Feature on or off" -> check "Windows Subsystem for Linux".
* Use [this guide]( to install the [Ubuntu app]( from the Microsoft Store.
* Run the Ubuntu app and change the directory to a location that you can access from Windows:
$ cd /mnt/c/Users/<your_username>/
* Then follow the Linux instructions.
For older versions of Windows follow the [instructions to set up VirtualBox](
## MacOS
* Download and run the [Miniconda .pkg installer]( in the Python 3.7 version.
* Start the "Terminal" app or [iTerm2](
* If you use something else than `bash` as your shell, you need run
$ source ~/.bash_profile
to activate conda. You can also add the conda initialization to other shells with
$ miniconda3/bin/conda init <shellname>
$ miniconda3/bin/conda init zsh
## Linux
Start the respective terminal/console app.
$ wget
$ chmod u+x
$ ./
You need to specify your installation destination, e.g. `/home/<your_username>/tools/miniconda3`. You must use the **full** path and can**not** use `$HOME/tools/miniconda3`. Answer `yes` to initialize Miniconda3.
The installation will modify your `.bashrc` to make conda directly available after each login. To activate the changes now, run
$ source ~/.bashrc
