Download


Files
You can download either the 32-bit or 64-bit version of UCINET. The 32-bit version is the standard version and runs on both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows. The 64-bit version is experimental and only runs on 64-bit windows. As it is subject to crashes, it is best used in tandem with the 32-bit version.

32-bit Installation Package. This installs the 32-bit version of UCINET along with several helper programs (such as NetDraw), and puts a copy of all the standard datasets in a folder called Ucinet Data under your My Documents folder. The installation program is new and unfortunately can't automatically uninstall versions of UCINET prior to 6.531, so you should do that yourself prior to installing 6.531.

64-bit installation package. If you have a 64-bit version of Windows, you can try this 64-bit version of UCINET. It lets you analyze much larger datasets, if you have the RAM memory for it. However, it is also flaky. Older parts of UCINET are not compatible with 64-bit execution, so these parts will crash. If when you try to run the program it complains about missing some files, download and extract these files to the UCINET folder: double64.zip. Also, here is an (older) version of the 64-bit exe -- no installation package: UCI6.exe. If you download this one, you definitely need to download the double64.zip file and extract the files to the same folder as uci6.exe

Trial vs "real" version. Actually, there is no separate trial version. If you download the program, it will run on your computer for 60 days without having to enter a registration code. Buying the program gets you that registration code. So whether you buy or just try, you download the same program.

Virus/malware issues. There was a time when the download files were stored in a DropBox location. For some reason, this caused Norton AntiVirus to flag the program as dangerous. So we don't use DropBox for this anymore. But you might still run into issues with Norton or some other anti-virus program when installing UCINET. One thing to be aware of is that Windows 8 will issues warnings that the publisher is unknown and probably dangerous. This just means we haven't sought (and paid for) Microsoft certification.


Installation Notes

Windows

Installation works best if you right-click on the installation file (typically called something like setup32UCI6534.exe) and choose 'Run as Administrator'. Similarly, it is also helpful to use 'Run as Administrator' when running UCINET itself for the first time, as this allows you to register the program for all users of your machine. See the FAQ on this.
If you have Norton antivirus, you may want to turn if off. The download files are stored in a DropBox location, and Norton is often suspicious of this. Sometimes it claims UCINET is a virus, or contains a virus, or something. Other anti-virus packages don't see to have a problem ...

WINE

One way to run UCINET on a Mac is to use Wine. For more information, see this FAQ.

Version Info

  • Version 6.557 | 27 Mar 2015

    • Added loadps command to command line interface (aka matrix algebra). This procedure reads Visual Anthropac pilesort files such as this one. Syntax is 

      -><output> = loadps(<textfile> [<string>])

      the <string> is a specific bit of text that the program looks for within each respondent's data area, allowing the user to read only certain piles. the default is the word "pile"

      ->indprox = loadps(holidays.txt "pile")

  • Version 6.556 | 13 Mar 2015

    • Made changes to how output log file names are passed to editors in order to make it easier to use alternatives to notepad.exe, such as wordpad.exe. The big advantage of wordpad and other text editors is that they are not limited to lines of 1024 characters, as notepad is. And the "look" is often nicer. IMPORTANT NOTE: The first time you use wordpad.exe, you should go to the View tab and turn off word-wrapping.

  • Version 6.554 | 24 Feb 2015

    • Minor improvements to matrix editor
    Posted Feb 24, 2015, 12:14 PM by Steve Borgatti
  • Version 6.553 | 21 Feb 2015

    • Fixed bugs in importing Excel and CSV files in matrix editor and dl editor
    • Changed the way 'Data|Import Text files|Raw|Raw matrix test file reader' procedure works. Now, if you have multiple matrices, the program only allows column labels in the very first row of the file -- not repeated for each matrix. Also, there is no way to input the matrix name for multiple matrices. To read a text file like this:

  • Version 6.552 | 17 Feb 2015

    • Fixed bug in Networks|Roles & Positions|Automorphic|All permutations which was failing when the dataset contained no node labels
    • Made significant changes to how UCINET handles registration codes and storing of user settings. These should make it easier to install UCINET in a virtual setting
    Posted Feb 17, 2015, 8:22 AM by Steve Borgatti
  • Version 6.551 | 11 Feb 2014

    • Fixed bug in matrix editor which was producing strange results when multiple sheets were being deleted
    • Fixed bug in Networks|Cohesion|Density|Density by Groups which was causing crashes when datasets without node labels were used
    • Fixed bug in dl editor which was creating row and column labels improperly when the user did not include them 
    Posted Feb 11, 2015, 7:54 PM by Steve Borgatti
  • Version 6.550 | 9 Feb 2015
    • Changed matrix editor so that when saving a workbook with multiple sheets, the program checks to see if all of the sheets have the same row and column labels. If they do, it saves all sheets into the UCINET file. If they don't, then it only saves the active sheet
    • Fixed matrix editor to allow it to open .xlsx files as well as .xls files. 
    Posted Feb 9, 2015, 3:24 PM by Steve Borgatti
  • Version 6.549 | 27 Jan 2015

    • Fixed Help|Register to properly handle user ids written in upper case unicode characters
    • Changed Networks|Ego networks|Gould & Fernandez Brokerage to make it easier to specify an attribute
