System Requirements: Running COMSOL Applications

COMSOL applications can be run by connecting to COMSOL Server™ from a web browser or from the COMSOL Client for Windows®. The COMSOL Client for Windows® allows a user to run applications that require a LiveLink™ product for CAD. Running applications in a web browser does not require any installation or web browser plugins. Running an application in a web browser supports interactive graphics in 3D using WebGL™ technology. The system requirements for COMSOL Compiler™, and compiled applications, are identical to those for COMSOL Multiphysics®.

Web Browsers

Recent versions of the most popular web browsers support the WebGL™ standard for 3D graphics and WebSockets. The table below lists the earliest version of each browser that supports WebGL™ and WebSockets, but we recommend always using the latest version of the browser for the best user experience.

Operating System Browser Recommended Version
Windows®/Linux®/macOS Chrome™ 31 or later
Windows® Internet Explorer® 11 or later
Windows® Microsoft Edge® 21 or later
Windows®/Linux®/macOS Firefox® 35 or later
macOS Safari 7.1 or later
macOS Safari 8.1 or later
Android™ Android™ Browser 37 or later
Android™ Chrome™ 40 or later

COMSOL Client for Windows®

Running COMSOL applications with the COMSOL Client for the Windows® operating system utilizes Microsoft® Windows® components. This gives simulation applications a look-and-feel similar to applications running in the COMSOL Desktop® environment. In addition, many of the LiveLink™ products for CAD software can be used with the COMSOL Client.

Supported Operating System Version
64-Bit Operating Systems
  • Windows® 11
  • Windows® 10
  • Windows® 8.1
  • Windows® 7 SP1
  • Windows Server® 2022
  • Windows Server® 2019
  • Windows Server® 2016
  • Windows Server® 2012 R2
The COMSOL Client also requires that the Internet Explorer® web browser has been updated to version 11 or later.
