Hardware & Software

Requirements
These requirements are written for Version 8.4.3 and above.

Special Vista Note: If you are using a Vista computer to host your database, you
may have slow connection problems. Vista Service Pack 1 may resolve some of
the slowness issues, and Microsoft continues to work on them. In the meantime,
if you need to use a Vista host, we will attempt to help you obtain the best speed
possible.
If you plan to use Vista, please let our sales department know before purchase or
download of our Free 30-day Trial for testing!
