SICStus 4 Portability

SICStus Prolog is available under Windows, macOS, and Linux. The download page specifies the minimum supported version of each operating system. See the latest Release Notes for additional details.

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.

Prerequisite Software

Windows Prerequisites

If you intend to create executables that use SICStus or write foreign code, you need a C compiler, one of:
VC15
Visual Studio 2017 (15.3)
VC14
Visual Studio 2015
VC12
Visual Studio 2013 with Service Pack 1
VC11
Visual Studio 2012 Update 4
VC10
Visual Studio 2010 with Service Pack 1
VC9
Visual Studio 2008 with Service Pack 1
There are distinct SICStus distributions; one 32-bit and one 64-bit for each variant. The distributions can coexist on the same machine and they take identical license codes.

Prerequisites for Optional Modules

The Tcl/Tk, Berkeley DB, PrologBeans, Jasper, and ODBC modules require software that is not always installed by default. For each platform supported by our latest release, the following table shows the required version of such software, download links, and brief instructions. For Linux, the relevant Red Hat or CentOS modules to download are annotated e.g. db5-devel and installed e.g. as:
% yum install db5-devel
It should be straightforward to find and install the analogous modules for Debian and Ubuntu.
