Windows installers should be run as administrator.
For Linux users before MITK 2016.11: The environment variable QT_PLUGIN_PATH has to be set to point to the Qt 5 plugins directory in order to run the application for MITK 2015.05 and MITK 2016.03. One of the typical paths is listed within the example commando
bash:~/$ export QT_PLUGIN_PATH=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins
Another typical path is something like
bash:~/$ export QT_PLUGIN_PATH=/opt/Qt/5.7/gcc_64/plugins
When not set, the attempt to run the application terminates with following error message: This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb".
If you see error messages similar to this one: Caused by: ctkPluginException: The plugin "~/MITK-2015.5.2-linux64/bin/plugins/liborg_blueberry_ui_qt_help.so" could not be loaded: Cannot load library ~/MITK-2015.5.2-linux64/bin/plugins/liborg_blueberry_ui_qt_help.so: (libQt5Help.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory) You will need to install missing Qt packages (in this case libqt5help5).
For Windows users: You need to install the appropriate Microsoft VC redistributable. MITK Version 2016.03 and newer include the redistributable installer within the installation package.
The Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013 can be found at https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=40784 The Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2015 can be found at https://www.microsoft.com/de-de/download/details.aspx?id=48145
MITK releases include binary installers for Linux, macOS, and Windows. Please note that these installers only contain an application demonstrating MITK's capabilities, not the MITK SDK.
Some older releases can be found at the MITK SourceForge project site.
Nightly built installers can be found here. Caution! These are automatically generated untested developer versions!
Please download the latest installers for MITK Diffusion directly on the MITK Diffusion site.
MITK 3M3 was a binary-only release in 2009. It is no longer supported nor available.
Recent releases of special applications can be found here.
MITK Source Code
We recommend to use the source code archive from the latest MITK release (see table above) or to check out the corresponding git tag.
If you need bug fixes or features which are not yet included in a MITK release, you can also clone the Git repository at:
Before updating to a current development version, you can check the status of the MITK continuous integration system.

The MITK Plugin Generator is a command line tool which can generate CTK-style MITK plug-ins and optionally a whole CMake project to boostrap the process of setting up a MITK-based project.
For more information, please see the Documentation.
The latest version of the MITK Plugin Generator is included in the MITK code repository
