WinSPC Envision is a web server application that produces reports and views from one or more WinSPC databases.
WinSPC version 8.0.0 or later
WinSPC databases supported:
SQL Server 2005 (all editions, including Express)
SQL Server 2008 (all editions, including R2 and Express)
SQL Server 2012 (all editions, including Express)
These requirements are for the web server hosting the WinSPC Envision system and processes. If other applications will be running concurrently on the same web server, then the capacity of that server must be increased to handle the extra load.
For all systems, regardless of the number of users:
Operating Systems (running Microsoft Windows IIS):
Windows Server 2003
Windows Server 2008 (32-bit or 64-bit)
Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit)
Other System Requirements:
1 GB of available hard disk space
Internet Explorer 5 or greater installed on the WinSPC Envision server (required for the XML parsing module)
ODBC drivers for (as well as network access to) the WinSPC database(s) that will be used as data sources
If the web server is a 64-bit operating system, you will need to have the 32-bit ODBC drivers installed
Access to an SMTP server for WinSPC Envision email functionality
Minimum recommended processor and RAM configurations are based on the number of concurrent users. The RAM represents the additional memory necessary beyond the memory used by the server operating system and other applications:
1 to 10 WinSPC Envision users
256 MB RAM
At least a single core 1GHz+ class CPU
10 to 50 WinSPC Envision users
512 MB RAM
At least a dual core 1.5GHz+ class CPU
50 to 100 WinSPC Envision users
1 GB RAM
At least a dual core 2GHz+ class CPU
We also recommend following Microsoft’s hardware and software recommendations based on the operating system for the server. The WinSPC Envision server can be considered both a web server and an application server for hardware and software planning.
Internet Explorer 8
Internet Explorer 10
Apple iOS 7
