System Requirements: discovery ][ Local

You will have the best experience with Local on a PC that meets the Recommended System specifications shown as follows. Local will run on a PC that meets only the Minimum Requirements; however, performance will not be as fast.

Minimum System Configuration

  • OS: Microsoft Windows 10 64-bit or Windows Server 2012 R2 64-bit

    • Installing Local into a Parallels environment is not supported.

    • Installing Local into an Apple BootCamp environment has not been fully tested and has limited support. Users may be required to test installation on a PC running Windows 10.

Streaming Module Requirements

When using the Streaming module, we recommend:

  • RAID1 storage for performance and readability.
  • Gigabit Ethernet connection or higher
  • IBM Notes 8.5.3 or 9.0.1 FP2 (FP3 and later fix packs are not supported)

Citrix Environments

Information related to tested Citrix configurations, as well as helpful links containing deployment instructions, can be found here: Citrix Versions and Hardware Specs.

Important Notes About Citrix

  • As there is an unlimited number of possible execution environments, IPRO confines its testing to common scenarios. IPRO cannot guarantee all features will function as normal with every Citrix configuration. Testing the software in your configured environment is advised.
  • It is highly recommended that users presenting at trial also install Local directly onto their local machine. Citrix deployments allow for seamless integration between Local components, however, a local install provides the greatest performance when playing or presenting media in TrialDirector 360.
