Setting up GLEAMviz

The GLEAMviz Simulator is a desktop application, meaning that in order to use it you will need to install the application on your computer. The software is available for Windows, Mac and Linux.

To install the client, download the application installer for your operating system:

GLEAMviz v7.2
for Windows
GLEAMviz for Windows
GLEAMviz v7.2
for Mac OS
GLEAMviz for Mac
GLEAMviz v7.2
for Linux 64 bit
GLEAMviz for Linux

Then run the installer and the GLEAMviz Simulator will be ready to use in a while. (Linux users might have to set the executable permission on the installer file and/or run it from the terminal, depending on the OS distribution configuration).

Please note that according to your security settings, you might need to explicitly allow the execution of the installer.
