Platforms

Download the Edbot Software for your platforms using the links below. Please ensure you run the same version of software on each device on your network.

Windows

The Edbot Software runs on Microsoft Windows Vista/7/8/8.1/10 and is provided as a standard signed installer.

To install the software, double click the installer and follow the on-screen instructions. Note the x86 (32-bit) version additionally needs the MS Visual C++ Redistributable libraries available here.

Download the following installer to add the Edbot blocks language translations to Scratch 2.0 offline. The same installer works for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows.

You'll need to install this on every computer running Scratch 2.0 offline and you'll need to re-install if you upgrade your version of Scratch. We currently offer translations for Dutch, Spanish, Hungarian and Lithuanian.

macOS

The Edbot Software is available for macOS 10.7 and upwards and is packaged as a DMG file.

To install the software, double click the downloaded DMG file and accept the EULA to mount the image. Drag the Edbot Software icon to the Applications shortcut provided in the Edbot Software Setup window. When that's done type ⌘E to close the Edbot Software Setup window and eject the image.

Linux

We provide builds for x64 and arm32hf (Raspberry Pi) architectures. You'll need to be running a desktop such as GNOME, KDE, LXDE or Pixel. The Edbot Software is packaged as a self-extracting archive.

To install the software, open a terminal window and type the appropriate command depending on the file you've downloaded:

sudo sh <path-to-downloaded-file>/edbot_linux_x64.bin
sudo sh <path-to-downloaded-file>/edbot_linux_arm32hf.bin
