Hello Deepak,
I am sorry to inform you that OpenFOAM runs only on Linux OS. However, it runs on all flavours of Linux like Ubuntu, Fedora and SuSE. More info is available on the OpenFOAM website <a href="http://www.openfoam.org" target="_blank" title="">http://www.openfoam.org</a>

Hi Deepak,

OpenFOAM software is not designed for running with Window, but there are some versions available for windows ( which can at times be tedious ) . You can rather install a VMWare / Virtual Box and run ubuntu without compromising your windows use. But I would strongly recommend you use Linux for OpenFOAM and in case of any difficulty of using linux you can go through the Spoken Tutorials for linux.

Hi Deepak,

As suggested by Rahul, you can use Virtual Box for installing Linux to run OpenFOAM . Alternatively you may install ubuntu along with windows OR make a bootable ubuntu USB which will act as a plug-in OS device and you may install OpenFOAM in that which will run work without disturbing your present files and OS.

The process for making bootable usb is given in the link:
