Minimum 1 GB RAM, recommended 4 GB RAM.

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

Hard disk

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.

Network10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet, TCP/IP v4 protocol. TCP/IP v6 protocol is not supported.
Graphics and videoMinimum 1280 x 1024 resolution, true color depth.

Parallels Desktop or VMware Fusion is supported, but please be aware that Esko doesn't test all combinations of macOS X and Parallels Desktop/VMware Fusion.

File servers

All 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. MacOS 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.
