The file is taking a long time to download.

The compressed NVivo file contains multiple files within and is a fairly large download which will take
longer than usual to complete, depending on internet speeds. Please be patient!

I am being asked to select an app to open the file, what do I do?

If you are asked to select an app (application) to open the zip file, select File Explorer. This is the
native Windows tool for unzipping files.

I can’t find the downloaded file on my computer.

Files that are downloaded default to the Downloads folder on both a Windows and Mac system.

I can’t find the decompressed/unzipped file on my computer.

Mac users: The unzipped files, by default, are placed in the same folder as the original zip file,
typically in the Downloads folder.

Windows users: During the unzip process the option to select a destination was available and our
instructions suggested the Desktop. If you are unable to locate the file on your desktop look in your
Downloads folder as that is the Windows default destination.

What are the requirements for my system to run NVivo?
