Integrative Genomics Viewer (IGV) (Version 2.3)
Options for installing and running IGV:
Note: Windows users with high resolution (e.g. 4k) screens must use the zip archive below.
Note: IGV 2.3.x requires Java 7 or later.
Java Web Start (All Platforms)
The buttons below use Java Web Start (JWS) to install and launch IGV directly from our web site.
*Mac Users: The Java Web Start option does not work for some users due to security settings. The recommended solution is to use the bundled Mac App from the link above. Alternatively you can try to work around this by right-clicking on the buttons and saving the "jnlp" file, then right-clicking on the saved "jnlp" file and select "Open With > Java Web Start".
Chrome: Chrome does not automatically launch the Java Web Start files by default. Instead, the launch buttons below will download a "jnlp" file. This should appear in the lower left corner of the browser. Double-click the downloaded file to run, or if on a Mac right-click and select "Open With > Java Web Start"
Windows users: To run with more than 1.2 GB of memory you must install 64-bit Java. Most Windows installs do not include 64-bit Java by default, even if the operating system is 64-bit. Attempting to use the 2GB or greater launch options with 32-bit Java will result in the error "could not create virtual machine".
