MathType Desktop's system requirements are not substantial:
˙35 MB free hard disk space
˙RAM requirements are minimal
˙Mac: Mac OS X El Capitan (10.11) or later, including macOS Mojave (Version 10.14)
˙Windows: Microsoft Windows 7, 8/8.1 (not Windows RT), and 10. MathType Desktop will run on Microsoft Surface Pro, Surface Pro 2, Surface 3, and Surface 3 Pro tablets. MathType Desktop will not run on Surface RT, Surface, and Surface 2 tablets. If in doubt, check the version of Windows your tablet is running. If it is running Windows RT, you cannot use MathType Desktop with it. If it is running Windows 10 or any of the other supported versions of Windows, MathType Desktop will work with it.
- -Virtual machines: MathType Desktop should run OK on VMs such as those created with VirtualBox, VMWare, Azure, and others.
- -Compatibility layers: We have run MathType Desktop successfully under Wine on Ubuntu, but our experience with MathType Desktop in this environment is very limited and we have not done any testing other than a proof of concept. Therefore we cannot make a recommendation for or against using MathType Desktop in such an environment. Neither can we provide technical support toward using MathType Desktop with Wine or other similar software such as CrossOver.
