Hello All,

I installed SageMath 9.3 after disabling all firewalls and antivirus software on windows 10 and still it crashes and quits immediately after I double-click on the icons--SageMath 9.3 or SageMath 9.3 Notebook. I have Anaconda and Jupyter installed. The only things which stays open is the SageMath 9.3 Shell but that opens with a $ prompt. I am totally lost--not a computer. This is what follows when I type sage in the shell

(sage-sh) gamma@DESKTOP-MAIN:~$ sage
│ SageMath version 9.3, Release Date: 2021-05-09                     │
│ Using Python 3.7.10. Type "help()" for help.                       │
/opt/sagemath-9.3/src/bin/sage-python: line 2:  1794 Illegal instruction     (core dumped) sage -python "$@"
(sage-sh) gamma@DESKTOP-MAIN:~$

Can someone please help me with very detailed instructions? Does Python 3.7.10 need to be installed?

Thanx in advance.

Can you try "SageMath 9.2 (Windows installer 0.6.2)" from

and report whether that works for you?
