Elmer Installers for Windows
If you want to install the ready compiled Elmer under Windows you have two main options:
1) elmerfem-nightly_Windows-AMD64.exe: A 64-bit windows installer based on cmake version of Elmer
2) elmerfem-mpi-nightly_windows-AMD64.exe: As previous but include MPI for parallel operation
32-bit installers are no longer supported. Note that the AMD64 refers to generally to 64 bit architecture
that was initially created by AMD but has been also adopted by Intel. Therefore these installers can
be used both on AMD and Intel processors.
These installers are based on a new version of Elmer hosted at Github. There the make system
has been transformed from gnu autotools to cmake. The aim is to have smoother compilation on different
platforms and and these Windows installers are the first fruits of this work.
If you want the best possible user experience with as little effort, consider also using the virtual machines.
There are also Old installers that are not to be recommended. If you are interested in these options you may
