Installation on other operating systems

Citavi is a Windows-based software and therefore only runs with Windows to date. A web version and a Mac version of the software are planned. The web version can be used across operating systems and will make cooperative work in a team possible.

There are, however, also possibilities for installing and operating Citavi on other operating systems.

Citavi on a Mac

So far, use on a Mac has only been possible under certain conditions, with the use of a virtualisation program at the same time, e.g.

  • Parallels Desktop
  • VMware Fusion
  • Sun Virtual Box.

You can find more detailed information on the installation underthe following link on the Citavi homepage.

Citavi with Linux

For information on the use of Citavi with Linux, you can also read the following article on Citavi's homepage.
