Installing ScanaStudio

The latest version of ScanaStudio can be downloaded here:


The downloaded windows package consists of a setup program that needs to be launched. If asked to grant administrative rights to that application, please accept. To uninstall, simply use Windows’ “Add/Remove programs” wizard.


The Linux package needs to be uncompressed to a folder of your choice. Then, inside this folder, you’ll find an installer script that needs to be launched. This script will usually ask for a SUDO password to proceed with the installation. The script will execute a series of commands, then notify you when it’s done. If any error message appears, please send a mail to our support services with the whole output of the script. Once installed, on Ubuntu (and similar) distributions, you can open ScanaStudio from the Unity Launcher (quick launch).

MacOS (OX X)

ScanaStudio for macOS comes bundled in a standard DMG archive. To install it, double-click the .dmg file to make its content available (the name will show up in the finder sidebar). Usually, a window opens, showing the content as well. Drag the application from the .dmg window into /Applications to install (may need an administrator password).
