downloading isis manually
I have been following the steps to download ISIS manually, but once everything is done I can't open any gui windows. My computer also doesn't recognize the setenv command. Not sure what I'm missing!

Hi Ryan, I'd be glad to help you get Isis3 set-up properly on your system. First, I have a few questions to help diagnose the issue:
What Operating System are you using?
In your terminal window, what is the output when you enter "echo $SHELL"?
What path did you install Isis3 in?
Keep in mind that setting-up the UNIX environment is a required step. The process can be reviewed near the bottom of our installation guide found at: https://isis.astrogeology.usgs.gov/documents/InstallGuide/index.html

I am using a Mac, version 10.9.5
I installed ISIS in my applications folder, in a folder I just named "isis". So the path would just be /Applications/isis

I've been trying to do the steps manually because I'm not very good with scripts, but if it looks like I'm missing a step I can try starting over, using either method. I also get an error when I try to enter the "setenv" command - my terminal window says the command is not found.

Alright, so it looks like you are using BASH (Bourne Again Shell), so "setenv" is actually not the command you need. In order to set-up your UNIX environment, you'll need to enter the following commands, in order:
If no errors are thrown, the following command should open a simple GUI to ensure that ISIS3 is set up properly:
If the lowpass GUI opens, you should be ready to go. Let me know how this works for you!

Unfortunately I got "command not found" after setting up the UNIX environment.
I'm going to try updating my operating system per Stuart's recommendation. It has definitely been a while since I have done that. I'll let you know if that fixes anything!
