Installing Fritzing

Please make sure your system satisfies one of these requirements:
Windows 10
Windows 7 was reported to work, too
Mac - OSX 10.14 and up, though 10.13 might work too. MacOS 10.15 is currently untested.
Linux - a fairly recent linux distro with libc >= 2.6

  1. Start downloading the Fritzing package that's right for you.
  2. Unzip your Fritzing folder somewhere convenient on your hard drive.
    • This may also be a good time for you to create a shortcut to the Fritzing application.
  3. To start Fritzing:
    • on Windows: double-click fritzing.exe
    • on Mac: double-click the Fritzing application
    • on Linux: double-click Fritzing, or try ./Fritzing in your shell window
  4. If you experience problems, please try downloading again. This often helps. If it doesn't, have a look at our forums.
Mac notes

Recent versions of OS X do not allow "unverified" software to be launched directly. In order to run Fritzing, you will need to either:

  1. right-click the Fritzing icon and select "Open"
  2. in the warning dialog, click "Open"
or, to get rid of the warning permanently:
  1. go to the System Preferences
  2. open the Security & Privacy page
  3. unlock it by clicking the lock in the lower left corner
  4. set it to allow app downloads from anywhere
