Standalone utilities to analyze 23andMe raw data

Looking for standalone applications to analyze 23andMe raw data for non-geek user.

I am looking for standalone utilities to analyze 23andMe raw data. All utilities I found so far are web based and the data owner is not comfortable uploading data to any website to perform the analysis.

I came across Genome Express, that looks like can be installed on a local computer (but the dbSNP database they have is rather old, current dbSNP version is 138).

Does anyone have other recommendation? Please note that the data owner is not a geek so scripting is not an option.

Thanks in advance.

It's not dead-nuts simple--you've got to install R and write some commands to kick off the included scripts--but DIYDodecad will give you your probable genetic admixture.

Promethease might be a possibility - the paid desktop version does not upload your full genotype to a server, there is some minimal privacy risk as it requests a few pages from SNPedia.

The Interpretome is web-based but doesn't send your genotype across, it will send only the population you select to best identify you.

There is also Enlis. No personal edition though. Promethease worked well for me.
