How do I install Exodus?

Linux and Windows Users, please note that Exodus will only run on 64-bit systems. Make sure to check your operating system is compatible:

To install Exodus on Windows, Mac, or Linux simply download the latest version from:


For Windows users, you can click the installer after downloading and it will automatically install the application to your desktop. It should only take a few seconds to install, and you will be all set to get started.

Windows 7 users will need to ensure that .NET Framework 4.5.2 is installed, if it is not installed prior to installing Exodus, the installer will attempt to download and install it for you. In the event that the .NET install fails, download the .NET installer from the Microsoft website and install it manually and then install Exodus again:


You can click the installer after downloading, and you will be prompted to drag the application into the Applications folder. In just a few seconds, your wallet will be installed and ready to run.


If you're using a Debian-based distribution like Ubuntu, Linux Mint etc., you can download a .deb package and install Exodus by opening it. Depending on your desktop environment or distribution, the installation process might look different. These screenshots are taken on Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS.

After the installation, Exodus will appear in the app drawer of your desktop environment and you can launch it from there:

If this doesn't work for your distribution, please download the zip package and use the method below.

Using Linux .zip package

After you've downloaded the Exodus application, you'll need to unzip it:

Then you can place the folder wherever you like, we recommend just dropping it in your home directory.

You can then run Exodus by just double-clicking on the "exodus.desktop" file:

This file contains a command that launches Exodus from the current directory. Depending on your security settings, you may receive a pop-up asking you whether you trust this file to be launched:

It's okay not to trust us here, we get it :) You can always verify what the file does by opening it in the text editor and reviewing the contents. All the file does is launching Exodus from the current folder. If you decide not to trust the file or your Linux distribution does not support .desktop files, you can always run Exodus directly from the terminal:  ./Exodus

If you decide to trust us, the "exodus.desktop" file will start to appear as "Exodus" in your GUI and you'll see two files that are named similarly:

The one you need to launch will always have the smallest size as on the screenshot above. Please note that this file won't work outside of the Exodus folder.

Some newer Linux releases may require libgconf-2-4 to be installed which can be done by either:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y libgconf-2-4


sudo yum update && sudo yum install libgconf2-4
