This page shows you how to install Chameleon GUI on Windows.
There are three ways to install Chameleon on Windows:
- Use the Iguana installer to install Iguana on your Windows machine as it includes a copy of Chameleon.
- Use the Chameleon installer.
- Perform a manual Chameleon install.
The second and third options are usually used after a manual Iguana install on Windows – as it does not include Chameleon.
Note: Chameleon applications can be deployed on all Windows, Linux, and Mac – but the Chameleon GUI only runs on a Windows machine (or Windows VM).
Using the Windows installer [top]
- Download the latest Chameleon installer from our download site:

- Extract the contents of this file, and move them into the folder into which you want to install the additional copy of Chameleon.
- To start this copy of Chameleon, double-click VMstudio.exe in the install directory.
- Follow the Register Chameleon steps – from the “Using the Windows installer” section above.
Installing Multiple copies on Windows [top]
Note: You can run multiple independent copies of Chameleon on Windows, each copy will need a separate install directory and it’s own license.
- Create a separate install directory for the new copy of Chameleon.
- Follow the same steps as the Manual Windows install – using the separate install directory you just created.
