LinSig 3 Requirements

To use LinSig you require the hardware and software standards set out below. Both minimum standards and suggested standards are set out. Minimum standards are just that - the minimum standard it is possible to use LinSig on. To productively use LinSig we strongly recommend you try to achieve or exceed the suggested standard.

Hardware requirements

The absolute minimum hardware standard is:

  • PC with at least a 2Ghz processor or equivalent.
  • 1Gb RAM.
  • 25Mb of free hard disk space.
  • Minimum Graphics resolution of 1280x1024 with Full (32 bit) colour.
  • 19” Monitor.
  • CD Drive (required for installation only).
  • A two-button mouse.

The suggested hardware standard is:

  • PC with a 3.0 GHz processor. Optimisation of larger networks benefits from a faster processor
  • 2Gb RAM. Optimisation of larger networks will benefit from 3-4Gb of RAM
  • 25Mb of free hard disk space.
  • Graphics resolution of 1920x1200 with full (32 bit) colour.
  • 24" 1920x1200 resolution monitor.
  • An additional monitor (with compatible graphics card(s)) is very useful but not essential. For larger networks a second monitor becomes essential for maximum productivity. In our experience a second monitor (cost ~£180) is one of the most cost effective ways of improving LinSig productivity. (And many other applications as well!!)
  • CD Drive (required for installation only).
  • A three-button wheel mouse. Not essential but extremely useful for zooming graphical views.

Please note that depending on the version of Windows you are using, the hardware requirements for Windows may exceed the above.

Software requirements

LinSig 3 can be used on any of the following platforms:

  • Microsoft Windows 10
  • Microsoft Windows 8
  • Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Microsoft Windows Vista
  • Microsoft Windows XP

Microsoft .Net Version 2.0 or 3.5 is also required to be present.

Although LinSig 3 is no longer formally supported on earlier versions of Windows, it is envisaged that LinSig should run successfully on:

  • Microsoft Windows 2000 with Internet Explorer Version 5.5 or above.

LinSig 3 will not run on Windows 98 or below.
