Capture-it can also be delivered via all common virtualisation technologies

Note however, that certain virtual servers may require a specially adapted copy of our database software called Pervasive® Vx. This requirement will be discussed before sale and clarified during your scoping session with one of our Technical Consultants.


* As support for Windows® XP and support for Windows® Server 2003 has now ended, our support for these operating systems is on a "best endeavours" basis.

** Windows RT is not supported

"Home" Operating Systems are not supported

Memory

There are no extra requirements for memory above those recommended by Microsoft® for each particular operating system. There may, however, be additional memory requirements for certain virtualisation platforms.

Disk Space

Typical Client installs consume approximately 75MB of free space whilst Server installs consume approximately 100MB of free space.

More space will be required during install to allow for unpacking of temporary files, etc. therefore we recommend that Clients have at least 1GB of free disk space and the Server has at least 2Gb of free disk space.

Additionally, Capture-it requires approximately 1KB of storage space, per employee, per day. This means that for 100 employees, one years' worth of data may consume approximately 36MB of hard drive space.

Other Requirements

Microsoft .NET Framework

Client machines require the .NET 4.0 Client framework to be installed.

Server machines require the .NET 4.0 Full framework to be installed.

However, if these are not present on the machine they are installed automatically when our installer starts.

Please note that the above is subject to change. Technical requirements should be reviewed prior to placing any order to check for possible changes. Page last updated 22nd Jul 2015
