AxCrypt is currently only supported on Windows but we’re working on getting AxCrypt available on all major platforms. A table of supported operating systems can be found below.

Note: AxCrypt runs on 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows. On Windows 8 and 10, AxCrypt works in desktop mode, but there is no Metro app available yet, nor does AxCrypt run on Windows RT. We recommend to user desktop viewers and editors to open files secured with AxCrypt, as the Metro apps sometimes cause various issues.

Mac OS X

Although we’re working on getting AxCrypt available for all major platforms, there is currently no set release date. 


Other users have reported success running AxCrypt under Wine. However, it may be tricky to install since it requires dependencies to be manually installed, and the state of Mono (on which it depends) is very varying depending on the distribution.
