SICStus 4 Portability

SICStus Prolog is available under Windows XP/Vista/7/8, Linux, Solaris and Mac OS X. See the latest Release Notes for details.

Prerequisite Software

Windows XP/Vista/7/8 Prerequisites

  • If you don't have Windows XP SP2 or later, you need to update Microsoft's Windows Installer.
  • If you intend to create executables that use SICStus or write foreign code, you need a C compiler, one of: Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 with Service Pack 1 (VS10), or Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 with Service Pack 1 (VS9), or Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 with Service Pack 1 (VS8). There are distinct SICStus distributions; one for each variant. The distributions can coexist on the same machine and they take identical license codes.

Generic Prerequisites

If you want to use the Tcl/Tk, Berkeley DB, PrologBeans, or Jasper modules, you may need to download and install the corresponding prerequisite software module mentioned in the Table of Platforms below.

Platforms

32 vs. 64 bits

The SICStus distributions are classified 32 or 64 bits. This classification reflects the size of the address space that SICStus Prolog can use. A 32-bit distribution will run on both 32-bit and 64-bit hardware platforms, and will use 32-bit pointers to access memory. A 64-bit distribution will only run on a 64-bit hardware platform, and will use 64-bit pointers to access memory.

The download page provides further details on how to choose distribution.

Table of Platforms

The following table lists the supported SICStus platforms, for which binary distributions are available, as well as links for downloading optional third-party software, which is a prerequisite for certain modules. If your platform is not listed, please let us know.

In general, SICStus Prolog will work also on newer versions of the operating systems than the versions listed here.
