General installation information

On Windows, macOS, and Linux, it is best to install Anaconda for the local user, which does not require administrator permissions and is the most robust type of installation. However, if you need to, you can install Anaconda system wide, which does require administrator permissions.

Silent mode install

You can use silent mode to automatically accept default settings and have no screen prompts appear during installation.

Installing Anaconda on a non-networked machine (air gap)

  1. Obtain a local copy of the appropriate Anaconda installer for the non-networked machine. You can copy the Anaconda installer to the target machine using many different methods including a portable hard drive, USB drive or CD.
  2. After copying the installer to the non-networked machine, follow the detailed installation instructions for your operating system.
