There is a Linux version at launchpad that can be used on Ubuntu and Debian based systems:

$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:elmer-csc-ubuntu/elmer-csc-ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install elmerfem-csc


There is a nightly build for Windows both with and without mpi updated rather frequently at.

Only 64-bit version is supported. Note that AMD there refers to the instruction set also applicable on Intel processors.

The VM is huge in size but provides a certified user experience. This is often used at courses to give not only a fresh Elmer version, but also a complete installation of related tools. 


There is no official Mac support. However, there are old recipes for homebrew that may help in the process.
