A zip containing all required binaries can be downloaded from the assets above. Alternatively an installer is provided. See notes below:

Note 1: the .zip archive contains all REvoSim programs (REvoSim and EnviroGen). The .zip can be extracted and the programs run by double clicking the .exe files in the ./bin folder. All the required libraries have been included and are found in the ./bin folder.

Note 2: The windows installer will not overwrite any pre-existing REvoSim installations. However, it will set the default program for all REvoSim files (.revosim) to to use the newly installed version.


We are working on a Mac release and hope to have it released soon.
