Computer Requirements for SoftPlan

SoftPlan can be run on any current generation PC which is 100% IBM® compatible and uses the Windows® Vista, Windows 7 Windows 8 or Windows 10 operating systems along with an Intel® or equivalent processor. SoftPlan is not compatible with the Apple® Mac OS®, including when used on a computer with an Intel processor. In addition, configurations such as terminal or server operating systems as well as the Linux and Sun® Solaris™ operating systems are not supported. It may also be possible to run SoftPlan on those earlier versions of the Windows operating system which are still supported by Microsoft®.
SoftPlan can be run on both 32 or 64-bit operating system. (64-bit is better)  
Preferred:  Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10 64-bit
Will operater on 2.4 GHz dual Core 
Preferred:  Multiple (4+) Cores and Hyper Threading will provide considerable benefits when working in 3D, less noticeable but still desirable for non-3D work. They are also more important than raw processor speed.
Video Card
Preferred:  DirectX 11 support, 1 GB+ dedicated RAM. The higher the number of pixel shaders, vertex shaders, and stream processors the better the resulting 3D performance will be in all modes but Rendered. SoftPlan Rendered mode uses the CPU and not the graphics card, and this is where the multiple cores will really come into play.
System Ram
Will operate on 2 GB
Preferred: Minimum of 8 GB or more for better performance. 
Program installation
5 GB of free hard drive space.
Other requirements
USB Port for security key, DVD Drive for installation from disk, Internet connection for downloading additional content files.
2 Button Mouse with scroll wheel.
Because a computer is comprised of numerous components each with unique performance
capabilities it is impossible to recommend an ‘ideal system,’ nor can recommendations on specific brands or hardware components be made.
