Installing on Windows¶


The recommended method for installing PROS on all platforms is now using our VS Code extension. Instructions for this can be found on the Getting Started page.

If you do not want to use VS Code, the method below will allow you to install the old, deprecated fork of Atom we call the PROS Editor or the CLI by iteslf.

If you are an advanced user looking to install the PROS CLI through Python pip, check out the instructions on the Installing on Linux page instead.

To start using PROS on Windows, simply download the latest version of the installer (.exe file) from here. You do not need to download any other files.


Make sure that you download the correct version of the installer for your computer (32- or 64-bit). You will run into problems if you use the wrong one. To determine what type of operating system you are using, go to Windows’ Settings>System>About and next to System type it will either say 64-bit operating system or 32-bit operating system.
