Visit the ParaView Download portal to download the latest Windows version of the ParaView software.

The data generated by M-Star Solve takes the form of ASCII text files (for numerical data output) and binary VTI files (for graphics and visualization). ASCII and VTI files are common formats supported by most commercial and open-source scientific visualization packages. Although ParaView is recommended, it is not required to post-processes the output data.
