PRISM should run on 32/64-bit versions of all major operating systems. We distribute pre-built binary versions for various architectures. But for non-Windows platforms, it is usually easy to build from source code.

Note: Your version (32- vs 64-bit) of Java must match that of PRISM. In particular, to use the 32-bit Windows binary, make sure you are running a 32-bit version of Java.
