Problems installing on Windows 7

asked 2024-05-26 14:16:50 +0200

I have an old laptop and cannot afford to upgrade right now, so i obtained the Sage 8.0 archived installation files, but i am having problems getting them to "make". automake seems like it requires automake to install itself. and after installing "make" from GNUWin32, the windows cmd prompt will not recognize it as existing, when i change directory to the sage directory containing the Makefile and run make: "make is not a recognized command..." Any help would be appreciated. Or even better, a windows executable Sage version that runs on Win7. Thanks for your consideration.

The best way to operate SageMath on Windows is WSL but I am not sure if Win7 has that feature. So, please try with the file SageMath-9.3-Installer-v0.6.3.exe from If this does not work, you can try with the older versions on the same page. Please mind that these are all much older versions than the present SageMath and can have bugs.
