OOMMF Installation

The OOMMF User's Guide includes detailed instructions on installing OOMMF, or you can look at the OOMMF Installation Overview. An easy option for beginners is to bypass installing OOMMF altogether and run OOMMF through a web-interface with a free account at nanoHUB. There is a nanoHUB OOMMF First Time User's Guide to help getting started.
