How to install OpenTURNS on Windows


  1. Install a Python interpreter:
    • Either Python basic interpreter,
    • or a meta installer like Anaconda gathering useful scientific python libraries (e.g. NumPy, SciPy, Pandas, IPython, Matplotlib...).
  1. Download and run the OpenTURNS installer openturns-X.Y-pyU.V-ARCH.exe matching your python version and architecture and follow instructions.
  1. Read Readme.txt from OpenTURNS menu (start -> programs -> OpenTURNS -> Readme.txt).

Silent mode

  • Installation and uninstallation can be done in silent mode with the /S switch. E.g.: openturns-X.Y-pyU.V-ARCH.exe /S
  • Installation directory can be specified with the /D switch. E.g.: openturns-X.Y-py2.7-i686.exe /S /D=C:\Python2.7
  • Installation type can be forced with /userlevel switch. It permits too to avoid permission check. 0 means install OT for all users (needs admin rights), 1: install OT only for the current user. E.g.: openturns-X.Y-pyU.V-ARCH.exe /userlevel=0
  • An example of unattended script is available here: install-openturns-deps.bat (install Python, NumPY, OT and some other useful module silently)
