Solution

The executables supplied with the 2019 release, are supported on the following platforms and operating systems:

  • Windows - Intel compatible, 32-bit executables (compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows) for:
    • Windows 7 and 10
  • Linux - Intel compatible, 64-bit:
    • RedHat Enterprise 6 and 7
    • CentOS 6 and 7
    • Ubuntu 16
      Note: As we add support for newer versions of Linux, support for older versions may have to be withdrawn.
  •  Mac Intel compatible 64-bit executables for:
    • macOS 10.12, 10.13 and 10.14

If you choose to use a version other than those listed above we cannot guarantee that components of the CSD-System will work correctly, although we will attempt to assist you with any problems you may encounter.​

As detailed with the 2018 CSDS Update 3 release, 32-bit linux executables are no longer available. With this and all future releases all linux executables will be 64-bit only and will not be compatible with 32-bit linux operating systems.

We also anticipate that the 2020 CSD System release will remove official support for 32-bit Windows systems. Note that this withdrawal of support does not necessarily mean that our future software releases will not work on 32-bit Windows operating systems, but that we cannot guarantee they will be able to do so from the 2020 release onwards. At this point some or all of the CSD System software will start to require a 64-bit Windows operating system. If this will cause insurmountable difficulties, please contact us at support@ccdc.cam.ac.uk to discuss possible solutions.

Note that some programs that comprise the CSD software may not be available on all of the operating systems listed above. This includes:

  • SuperStar 2.2.0 (Windows and Linux only)
  • DASH 3.4.0 (Windows only)
