I'm new in CS50, I started on Feb., then I have had some work load so I had to stop CS50 for a while. Now I'm back, and I'm stuck at finding the link to download CS50 Appliance and all the related package. I'm using Windows 8.1

Here you go:


Here is how you can find it:

  • Log in to edx.org
    • Click on course CS50
    • In the menu on top: Choose "Course Info"
    • See the right menu bar "CS50 Appliance"

The appliance itself is embedded in a VM, as it is written in the Manual:

The CS50 Appliance is a virtual machine (VM) that lets you "take" CS50 (and other courses!), even if you’re not a student at Harvard. It’s based on Ubuntu, a Linux-based operating system. It’s an appliance in the sense that we’ve preconfigured this VM for a specific purpose: CS50!

If you prefer to use your own VM or run the Appliance directly in a Linux environment, you can find an ISO here:
