• Any computer capable of running Windows XP or newer, either 32 or 64 bit versions.  We suggest at least a Pentium 90, and preferably much more.  The program is designed to be responsive even under processor strain, however, the refresh rate of graphs and images will be greatly reduced on slower processors.

  • 100 Meg of free hard disk space.

  • Enough memory to run the operating system plus a minimum of 100 meg on top of that.  Generally, the more you have, the more you will be able to take advantage of DAQFactory's capabilities.  The exact memory requirements on many factors, but in general, DAQFactory is not usually a memory hog.

  • Video capable of 800x600 resolution.  1024 x 768 is strongly suggested.  If DAQFactory is only going to be used as an HMI, it is possible to setup the DAQFactory screens on one computer and transfer the file to another computer that may not be able to achieve 800 x 600.  In this case, DAQFactory will operate at almost any resolution.  We suggest running in Runtime mode for this application.

  • Windows XP SP 3 or newer, which includes XP, Vista, Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10. Both 32 and 64 bit versions are supported. Vista is not recommended. You cannot run the program on Windows 95, NT 4.0, NT 3.51, CE, 98, Me, 2000, or any other lesser version of Windows.

  • Internet Explorer version 6 or greater must be installed for the help system.
