The following are the minimum system requirements for Plato 14.0. Exceeding these requirements will in most cases lead to a performance increase. Running Plato on a system that does not meet these requirements is not supported.

Minimum requirements

Plato 14.0 (Windows)

Minimum System Requirements for Plato 14.0 (Windows)
Processor type and speed

x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) compatible processor (Intel or AMD), minimum dual-core.

RAM

1 GB minimum, recommended is 4 GB RAM.

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

Hard 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.

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.
CD/DVDDVD-ROM drive.
VirtualizationParallels Desktop or VMware Fusion is supported, but please be aware that Esko doesn't test all combinations of MacOSX 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.
