Obtaining VMD Source and Binary Distributions

The VMD source code and binary distributions can be obtained after registering at the VMD web page. Download the appropriate distribution file with your web browser. Windows binary distributions are self extracting, so once the distribution file is downloaded, proceed to the installation directions below.

For source distributions and Unix binary distributions, uncompress and untar the file. This will produce a subdirectory named vmd-1.9.3. Unless otherwise specified, all references to VMD code will be from this subdirectory, so cd there.
