For more information about memory limitations in Windows operating systems, please consult this table.

Available hard drive space

  • System drive
  • Data drive

An NTFS volume is required. The software takes about 5 GB of disk space. Also take into account the need for storage of temporary and production data. A backup solution is strongly advised.

Minimum screen resolutionMinimum 1280 x 1024 resolution, true color depth.
Network connection10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet, TCP/IP v4 protocol, TCP/IP v6 protocol is not supported.
VirtualizationParallels Desktop or VMware Fusion is supported, but please be aware that Esko doesn't test all combinations of Mac OS X and Parallels Desktop/VMware Fusion.
FileserversAll Esko applications running on Windows OS can use data that is available on network shares. These shares need to be on Windows or Unix/Linux (using SMB) file servers. Mac OS X (version 10.3.x; 10.4.x; 10.5.x; 10.6.x) data servers are also supported, but with limitations. These are standard limitations encountered when connecting to a Mac OS X server from Windows workstations or servers. They are related to losing resource forks of the MAC-application data when a Windows component moves or copies data.

    Is there any chance you will upgrade to Windows 10 compatibility  soon? I´ll be upgrading my workstations very soon and I want to use the most resent OS that comes pre instaled with new computers. It´s been almost 8 months since windows 10 was released.

      PackEdge and Plato will support Windows 10 in v16 (expected in July).
