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

Minimum System Requirements for i-cut Layout 14.0
Processor type and speed

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

RAM

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.
DVD drive requiredDVD-ROM drive.
Virtualization

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

Fileservers

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. 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.

Supported Operating Systems

Recommended operating systems are highlighted in green in the tables below.

If an operating system is not listed in the tables below, it is not supported. Do not try to install i-cut Layout on a computer running an unsupported operating system.
