Get the standard distribution's source code

Here's what to do if there isn't a precompiled installer for your operating system, or if you need to customize the installation (e.g. change the location of binaries, or change the number of layers used by extracellular) but don't need the latest development code.

The following instructions describe how to install NEURON with or without its GUI. The full installation, which includes the GUI, is appropriate for most users because it allows NEURON to be run with or without its graphical interface. A very few users may have a hardware/OS environment that will not compile InterViews, e.g. workstation clusters or supercomputers. In such cases, NEURON can be compiled without its GUI.

1. Get the source code for
the current standard distribution of NEURON nrn-nn.tar.gz
and--unless you're one of the "very few users" mentioned above--the corresponding version of InterViews iv-mm.tar.gz
2. Your next action depends on the operating system you're using :
MSWin (95 and up)
