SERVER REQUIREMENTS

Your office will need one computer to play the role of the Server for Autumn8, whether you have only one computer total or a few dozen computers. The Server is the most important machine of all, because it is doing most of the heavy lifting in Autumn8. If the server is not up to the task of running the Autumn8 database and responding to every other computer, Autumn8 will feel slow on every station in your office. If the server is fast and able, so too will your other workstations be. Remember, the server can be a workstation also, but must fill a special role beyond that.

tgi Software cannot support Autumn8 on a SERVER unless the following requirements are met:

  • Machine has 8 GB RAM or more
  • Processor exceeds 8,000 on the Passmark Speed Chart (cpubenchmark.net)
  • Processor and operating system must be 64 bit
  • Gigabit wired network connection
  • Windows 7 operating system or newer (Win Vista, Win XP, Server 2003 not supported)
  • Widescreen monitor and 16×9 resolution (1280 x 720, 1600 x 900, 1920 x 1080)

Sample Recommended Processors:

Intel Core i7 4770 / Intel Core i7 4790 / Intel Core i7 4790K

WORKSTATION REQUIREMENTS

Every other computer in your office where you plan to run Autumn8 will be considered a “workstation”. These computers rely on the server for their data, so they must make a network connection to the server before Autumn8 will launch.

  • Machine has 4 GB RAM or more
  • Processor exceeds 4,000 on the Passmark Speed Chart (cpubenchmark.net)

  • Gigabit wired network connection (or strong Wireless AC connection if mobile PC)
  • Windows 7 operating system or newer (Win Vista, Win XP are not supported)
