Installing Mu in Windows is super easy.
Mu works on 64 bit versions of Windows. It’s a good idea to make sure your system to up-to-date with all Windows updates.
If you are in an educational setting you may need to get your system administrator to run the installer for you.
If you have an older version of Mu already installed, we recommend that you uninstall it first.
Download the Windows installer.
Find the installer you just downloaded (it’s probably in your Downloads folder). Double-click the installer to run it.
Windows complains about Mu coming from the internet.
As a result, we've outlined the extra steps needed to help Windows install Mu for both Windows 7 and Windows 10 (other versions of Windows will be similar).
"User Account Control" will ask you if you want to allow this program to make changes to your computer. Click "Yes"
Windows Defender will pop up with a warning message. You should click on the "More info" link.
The message will change giving you more information about the installer and display a "Run anyway" button. Click "Run anyway".
Review the license, select the check box and click “Install”.
Go make a cup of coffee as Mu installs on your computer.
The installation has completed successfully, click “Finish” to close the installer.
You can start Mu by clicking on the icon in the Start menu or by typing “Mu” into the search box (both highlighted below).
ON FIRST START, THIS MAY TAKE SOME TIME.
