StarTools is a 64-bit optimized application designed for fast 64-bit multi-core environments, with at least 4GB of memory available for larger images. If your machine does not meet these requirements, or you intend to process large images, then please run the 32-bit legacy executable and/or use the Bin module to reduce your image resolution.
The single ZIP archive contains the executables for Windows 32-bit, Windows 64-bit, macOS, Linux 32-bit and Linux 64-bit. StarTools is a self-contained pure native application and does not rely on the installation of any further frameworks.
Never download StarTools from anywhere else but startools.org.
We do not allow distribution of StarTools by any other party, on-line or off-line. If you find a copy of StarTools not hosted on startools.org, please let us know.
Some macOS (e.g. Sierra and above) users may need to run;
xattr -dr com.apple.quarantine StarTools.app
to un-quarantine StarTools.
This command needs to be run from the folder where the StarTools application is located (you can use the 'cd' command to navigate to the right folder, while using the TAB key to auto-complete the path).
Alternatively StarTools can be launched via control + click on the application, Show Package Contents, navigating to Contents/MacOS and clicking on the application.
Apple has been making it increasingly difficult for independent developers to distribute applications. As of Sierra you will have to follow the following steps to run StarTools.

Despite multiple users going through the lengths of getting StarTools white listed, the same problem pops up every 6 months or so.
The minimum specifications for a computer to run StarTools successfully depends mostly on the resolution the data you intend to process.
