Supported Platforms

Wing IDE 6 is available for Microsoft Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. Some additional platforms and devices are supported through remote development in Wing IDE Pro.

Microsoft Windows

Wing IDE runs on Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10 for Intel processors. Earlier versions of Windows are not supported and will not work.


Wing IDE runs on 64-bit Linux versions with glibc version 2.15 or later (such as Ubuntu 12.04+, CentOS 7+, Kali 1.1+, and Fedora 20+). Wing IDE Pro also supports 32-bit Linux and older 64-bit Linux systems by remote development (see below).

Mac OS X

Wing IDE runs on Mac OS X 10.7+ as a native application.

Remote Development

Wing IDE Pro's remote development features work on the same platforms as those listed for the IDE above, with the following additions:

  • 32-bit and 64-bit Intel Linux systems that are compatible with the manylinux1 policy as defined in PEP 513 -- glibc version 2.5 or later (such as CentOS and RHEL 5.5+, Ubuntu 9+, and Debian 5.0+)
  • ARMv6 and ARMv7 Linux running on Raspberry Pi -- glibc 2.19 and later
  • ARMv7 Linux running on the Jolla phone -- glibc 2.19 and later

Partial support is available on most other Linux based systems. If the system's architecture is not explicitly supported, Wing may still be able to remotely edit, search, and manage files on the remote system. However, debugging or running a remote Python Shell will not work unless there is a compilation of the debugger core that matches your architecture. In those cases, compiling the debugger core yourself from source (requires signed NDA) is an option.
