System Requirements


This section contains the system requirements for the location of the administrative image and the client workstation. If your system, servers, and workstations do not meet these minimum specifications, problems can occur, both within Quantity Takeoff and at the operating system level.

Whether your Windows operating system is the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, the version is automatically detected during installation. The appropriate version of Quantity Takeoff is installed.

A single deployment cannot target both Microsoft Windows 32 and Microsoft Windows 64 operating system architectures. To target both architectures, two separate deployments must be created. This selection can be made in the Deployment Creation dialog.
