Campus Software Library Sigmaplot Installation

How to install Sigmaplot for use in UW-Madison research.


SigmaPlot 13 and 14 installation REQUIRES administrative privileges to properly complete. Once you have downloaded the software, start the installer right-clicking on the downloaded file and selecting "Run as administrator".

The Campus Software Library version of SigmaPlot relies on a shared 20-user concurrent licensing system tied to the UW-Madison campus. In order to run the software you MUST be on a UW-Madison campus IP address (wired or wireless) or using a UW-Madison VPN pool address (static or dynamic).

SigmaPlot can only be installed and run in recent Microsoft Windows operating systems. It can also be installed in a virtual machine (VM), or using desktop based virtualization software such as Parallels and VirtualBox on a Mac. The following instructions will install Sigmaplot on your computer, but initially it will only work for the user account under which it was installed initially. To use the software on other user accounts, either install the software again on the new account, or follow troubleshooting procedure #2 in KB article #49973.

Download the software from the Campus Software Library and start the installer with administrative privileges. 

Follow the instructions from the vendor to install and/or update SigmaPlot:

Ensure your computer is connected to the campus network, or WiscVPN, and start the SigmaPlot software. If you receive an error message regarding licensing, check your network connection. If you receive a licensing error, please check troubleshooting tips in  Campus Software Library Sigmaplot Troubleshooting
