The latest official stable release should be available from https://graphviz.gitlab.io/_pages/Download/Download_windows.html (found by following the Download link at http://graphviz.org/ not too unsurprisingly.

If you need the very latest successful build you can fetch it from AppVeyor by going to the build history finding the latest build from "master" with a green bar to the left (indicating a successful build) clicking on it, selecting the configuration you desire, (I suggest a release build), then selecting "Artifacts".

  • Steve, do you know where I can D/L a portable Windows version? Developers don't have admin rights here :-( May 31, 2019 at 9:00

    @Mawg - There is Viz.js which is a javascript port of GraphViz github.com/mdaines/viz.js describes itself as a hack and is used by d3-vraphviz github.com/magjac/d3-graphviz. There is also Dagre github.com/dagrejs that looks promising. Chocolaty also has a graphviz portabble chocolatey.org/packages/graphviz.portable & so does portatble apps portableapps.com/node/38245 (both requires some other downloads but can potentially run from a USB key.

  • Thanks, Steve. I am just looking for command line, so the JS is out. I can't install Chocolatey for the same reason that I can't install Graphviz :-) I will raise a request to IT via my manager; maybe I'll have it by xmas May 31, 2019 at 9:55

    You could use the Portable Apps option (either from a local dir or a USB key) the only point is that to run the apps easily you need to run from the portable apps command line. May 31, 2019 at 15:12

    @Mawg - Just tried downloading the zip from the same site and 7z opens it fine. Extracting the release folder lets me run the bin\dot.exe tool so it looks fine to me. Jun 1, 2019 at 6:39
