Supported versions indicate that ENVI was either built on (the lowest version listed) or tested on that version. You can install and run ENVI on other versions that are binary-compatible with those listed.

The 64-bit Windows installer contains 32-bit binaries so that you can launch ENVI in 32-bit mode on 64-bit Windows systems. This ensures interoperability with ArcGIS. You can find the 32-bit versions of ENVI in the ENVI x.x program group under Start > Programs > ENVI x.x > ENVI for ArcGIS and Tools > ENVI Classic x.x (32-bit), where x.x is the software version.

An X-Windows manager is required for Macintosh. ENVI was tested using XQuartz 2.7.11.

For optimal performance, your video card should have a minimum of 1 GB RAM and should support OpenGL 2.0 or later. Also be sure to install the latest drivers for your video card.

ENVI Help requires an HTML5-compatible browser.
