Micro-Manager versions

Currently, there are 2 usable versions of Micro-Manager: 1.4 and 2.0-gamma. These versions use the same code to interface to devices, but differ in their user interface, and file reading/saving code. 2.0-gamma is actively developed and maintained. 1.4 is no longer developed (except for the device support and the ASI diSPIM plugin). If you start using Micro-Manager, it is recommended to use the latest nightly build of 2.0-gamma.

Drivers compatible with Windows® 7, Windows® 8, and Windows® 10. Installing USB-Link 2 drivers will disable the old USB-Link drivers on your PC. If you want to use both the USB-Link 2 and the old USB-Link, you will have to reinstall the old USB-Link drivers after installing the USB-Link 2 drivers. Orca can be configured to start when the user logs into the desktop session, and offers a graphical user interface (GUI) for configuring various settings, such as keyboard and mouse accessibility, preferred applications, and accessible login.

Due to security issues on OSX 10.12 and later, Micro-Manager does not start when opening ImageJ. To circumvent this, within the Micro-Manager folder in Applications, hold command and drag ImageJ onto the desktop. Then hold command and drag it back in. Then try running again. See Installation Notes.

Nightly Builds

Although there has been no official release for quite some time, further development and multiple bug fixes have occurred in the 1.4 branch in parallel with development of 2.0. Nightly builds are almost always stable and a better choice for most users than the latest official release.

  • Version 2.0-gamma (Windows) (you most likely want the 64-bit version)
  • Version 1.4 (Windows) (pay attention to 32-bit or 64-bit, both are listed but you need the one matching your Windows OS)
