Platform and Feature Support for ENVI 5.5 and IDL 8.7

This help article lists the supported platforms for ENVI 5.5 and IDL 8.7.

ENVI 5.5 Platform Support

Platform Hardware Operating System Supported Versions

Windows

Intel/AMD 64-bit

Windows

7 SP1, 8, 10

Macintosh

Intel 64-bit

OS X

10.10, 10.11

Linux

Intel/AMD 64-bit

Linux

Kernel 2.6.32, glibc 2.12


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.

a Windows users: these functions only run in 32-bit mode. If you have a 64-bit PC and you want to use these functions, run ENVI in 32-bit mode from the Windows Start menu.

b Supported on ArcGIS® for Desktop 10.4 and 10.5.

c FLAASH® is included with the Atmospheric Correction Module, which requires a separate license. The QUick Atmospheric Correction (QUAC) tool is also included with the module and runs on all platforms that ENVI supports.

d Requires a separate license for the ENVI Photogrammetry Module.

e Supported through the ENVI API only. The ENVI LiDAR user interface is not available on Linux.
