Installing a Cyclus VirtualBox

A native Windows installation is not currently explicitly supported. However, a Virtual Machine image can be downloaded that includes a pre-installation of all of these dependencies as well as a pre-installation of Cyclus and Cycamore. If you do not have access to a Linux or Unix (MacOS) machine, please follow these steps:

  1. Install VirtualBox
  2. Download cyclus_user_environment.ova
  3. Open the .ova file using VirtualBox (File->Import Appliance).
  4. Login with the username ubuntu and pw reverse
  5. Open a terminal and type conda update

Congratulations! You now have the same user environment as someone who installed Cyclus on an Ubuntu Linux machine.
