Mnova System Requirements and Mbook (In-house installations)


Mnova is a multiplatform software which will run alternatively on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Unix-like systems.

From now on, multiplatform laboratories will be able to allow each researcher to work on their Operating System of choice, and to seamlessly share data and processing capabilities with other researchers working on different platforms. There is no need to have three different software packages, and three different file formats, for different Operating Systems.

For latest Mnova version:


The minimum system requirements for a Mnova installation are the ones needed to run Windows 7 or higher. (XP is not supported anymore since Mnova v.10.0.2).

Mac OS X

Mnova requires Mac OS X 10.13 or higher.


Mnova requires at least Pentium 300 MHz, 128MB RAM, Video Adapter Super VGA (800 x 600) with X11, OpenSSL (not required from Mnova v.14.1) and OpenGL libraries.

Make sure you choose the correct setup file for your Operating System (Debian, OpenSUSE, Fedora, Ubuntu and Red Hat 6 Enterprise Linux). The minimum supported operating system is CentOS/RHEL 6.5
