Dear Help Team,

Your SageMath is a great thing! I always try to install every next version. However, now it fails after several attempts to do it (version 9.5) from different places. There is a message that the files are either damaged or not supported. I looked into the ZIP every time and didn't find any setup file there. Please, tell me what to do!

My PC is in Israel, with Windows 10, 64bit, NTFS.

I wish you a good day!

Respectfully, Dr. Vladimir Rosenfeld

The Sage-Windows installer so far only provides SageMath 9.3.

For SageMath on Windows, I would say your choices are currently

  1. Use SageMath 9.3 (or 9.2 if your computer has trouble with 9.3) from the Sage-Windows installer.

  2. Install the Windows Subsystem for Linux (also known as WSL), following

    Then you can install a Linux distribution of your choice using WSL, and use any way of installing SageMath that works with that Linux distribution, for example

    • using a package from that Linux distribution
    • using Conda
    • installing from source

    One benefit is you might get a faster Sage that way.

  3. Install Cygwin and build Sage from source there.

    See the instructions at

  4. Sponsor the work of E. M. Bray who prepares the Sage-Windows installers.

    That might speed up the next release.
