- Download ADE installer for Windows 64-bit: Ade64Setup.exe

After buying or renewing a subscription to ADE, you should receive an email with the activation code. If you can’t find it, ask your software purchaser or contact Lumina at support@Lumina.com or (+01)-650-212-1212.
Windows OS: Analytica and ADE run on Microsoft Windows 64-bit OS, including Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, Server, Server 2008, 2012 and 2016. Release 5.2 does not run on Windows 32-bit.
RAM: Analytica runs fine with only 1GB RAM, but it’s helpful to have more for larger models. For large models and large Monte Carlo sample sizes, we recommend at least 8GB RAM.
Hard disk: The Analytica installer is under 60MB. When installed, it takes up to 140MB on your hard disk, including Analytica application, solver, example models and libraries.
Screen size: It’s helpful to have a large screen if you want to build or view large models, especially if you want to see related documents or spreadsheets.
Macintosh: Analytica does not run on Macintosh OS, but, it does run nicely on a Mac using Parallels or VMWare to run Windows. (Max Henrion, the originator of Analytica and CEO of Lumina, runs Analytica on a Macbook.)
On the web: You can share your models for end users to view and run them via a web browser using the Analytica Cloud Platform.Others can run or review your models via a web browser without downloading software.
What if I need a 32-bit version?
You are currently using 64-bit Windows, so on this computer, you should be using the 64-bit version of Analytica and ADE.
Starting with Analytica 5.2, we only support the 64-bit version of Analytica and ADE, which requires the Windows 64-bit OS. There is no benefit to running a 32-bit program on a 64-bit operating system, but there are disadvantages to running a 32-bit program on a 64-bit operating system: The 64-bit version runs faster and, more important for large models, can access more memory. The 32-bit version of Analytica, like any Windows application, can access only up to 3GB of RAM (if you have 4GB or more installed.)
Most recent Windows computers, including laptops, run Windows 64-bits, but older computers may be 32-bit. If you know you have a 32-bit operating system, you’ll have to use an earlier 5.1 release:
- Download installer for Analytica 5.1 for Windows 32-bit: Ana32Setup.exe
If you’re not sure how many bits your Windows OS supports, here’s how to find out:
- Windows 10
- Open Settings by pressing windows key+i
- Click System (first item in Settings)
- Click About (last item in System)
- Scroll down to System type, which says “64-bit” or “32-bit” operating system
- Windows 7 or Vista
- Click Start
- Right-click Computer
- Choose Properties
- Click System page
- Look for the System type, which says “64-bit” or “32-bit” operating system
- Windows XP is unlikely to be 64-bit, but here’s how to check:
- Press Start menu
- Right-click My Computer
- Click Properties
- Press General tab
- Look under System to see if it says 64-bit. If it doesn’t mention it, it is 32-bit.
