It looks HitLeap only supports Windows: What is the HitLeap Viewer?. Unfortunately, we do not support Windows so you will not be able to run on it on DigitalOcean.

You’re able to run Hitleap if you load a droplet and add wine to it, then connect through vncviewer and install Hitleap with wine.

Here’s an example through Debian:

apt-get install nano wine xorg lxde-core tightvncserver
vncserver :1
(enter a password to connect with)
vncserver -kill :1

nano ~/.vnc/xstartup

Remove everything and paste:


xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey

x-terminal-emulator -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title “$VNCDESKTOP Desktop” &

x-window-manager &

Fix to make GNOME work

lxterminal &
/usr/bin/lxsession -s LXDE &

connect with VNCviewer, open up xterm
cd Desktop
wget -O hitleap.msi
wine start hitleap.msi

Then install and run the viewer. Works on 1G+ droplets, 512MB is too slow unfortunately.
