μ-ARGUS home page
μ-ARGUS is a software program designed to create safe micro-data files. The CASC-project took a previous version of μ-ARGUS, developed a.o. during the SDC-project and prototypes before that, as a starting point. At the end of the CASC-project version 4.0 was available.
Partly funded by Eurostat, a project was started on 20 December 2012 to port the at that time most recent version of μ-ARGUS to an Open Source version.
The resulting version should contain the possibility to be run on a Windows platform as well as on a Linux/Unix platform.
μ-ARGUS software releasesVersion 5.1.6
See the User Manual of version 5.1 for more information on the use of μ-ARGUS.Due to local programming facilities, we will only provide Windows executables for releases 5.1.3 and onwards. If someone would like to contribute to the development of Linux binaries, please contact us on GitHub.
Moreover, as of version 5.1.6 we will only provide 64 bit binaries with bundled JRE (Zulu Open JRE).You can download the latest Windows 64 bit binaries, build on Windows 10:
Older versions, build on 32 bit Windows 7:
We have build μ-ARGUS on 32 bit Ubuntu 14.4.0 up to version 5.1.1 only. We do not have enough Linux expertise to continuously develop a Linux version.
So, in case you want a newer version, please go to sdcTools on GitHub to download the sources and compile your own newer version.
Older versions, build on 32 bit Ubuntu 14.4.0:
