I am interested on this WebMO. Can it be installed in a windows based PC?

No, WebMO must be installed on a Unix web server and will not run off of a Windows 9x based PC. It requires advanced process control, sendmail, scripting, etc that are not available on Windows 9x or even Windows NT. However, once it is installed WebMO can be accessed through the web browser off of a Windows 9x based PC.

WebMO does run under Linux, which is a unix derivative than can be installed on a Intel based PC. We recommend the following setup:
  • RedHat Linux 6.2 Deluxe
  • Intel based PC (Pentium 200 or faster)
  • 64 MB memory
  • 4+ GB hard drive
Thank you for your interest.

Will WebMO run under cygwin in windows? Has this been done before?

WebMO might run under cygwin, but I don't think that anyone has ever tried it before. I considered looking into it, but the big reason I never bothered was the lack of availability of computational chemistry programs! I'm not sure that you could manage to get Gaussian/Gamess to compile under Cygwin. Even if you did manage to get a working comp. chem binary, WebMO might require a few minor tweaks to get things running.

Let me know if you manage to do it!
