*** Problems with Latest Stable Release ***

—> They are VERY OLD NOW.

Windows users should patch the most recent stable release with an autobuild from here. Just go to the URL which is the latest build and download the executable.

Mac users should use this kinda-sorta release build that works with any Mac that can run macOS v10.5 Leopard or later (PowerPC 32-bit, Intel 32-bit/64-bit, and M1 are all supported). We don’t update this build often, but it does have all of its optimizations enabled and it should run stable.

Mac Fat Binary: May 8, 2022 Build

There is also the Mac nightly build, but it is more intended for testing out cutting edge new features. It requires macOS v10.12 Sierra or later (Intel 64-bit only).

Note these nightly.link builds may expire after 90 days. Sorry, but this is the best we can do so far.

Linux users can install the latest version using Flatpak:

If you are using the autobuild and find a bug, then please report the issue at: https://github.com/TASEmulators/desmume/issues

If you are using “latest stable release” and you find a bug, then you aren’t reading this page very carefully. You shouldn’t be using “latest stable release”.


Note for Windows users: DeSmuME depends on the Microsoft UCRT DLLs. If you are unsure if these DLLs are already installed, download and run the latest version of the following installer before running DeSmuME:

Stable Releases (do not use)

Latest Stable Release Which There Is No Reason For You To Use : v0.9.11
Stable releases are designed to have consistent stability, performance, and usability. But they are updated bidecadally and aren’t supported.


Other DeSmuME Releases

If you need an older release for some reason, then you can download these and more at: https://sourceforge.net/projects/desmume/files/desmume/

DeSmuME X432R

The mysterious old Japanese X432R fork also includes the ability to increase the internal 3D resolution like our own nightly builds, but the 3D resolution is limited only to 2x, 3x, or 4x the native size. However, X432R has some frontend features that may be useful for some users. It is available only for Windows 32-bit x86 and Windows 64-bit x86-64. You will have to ask the Internet for it, since the developer’s website has vanished.
