Hardware specifications

So that you get the most out of your software your computer must be capable of running the software effectively. The following guide gives you the information you need to check that your software will work properly on your hardware.

As well as the minimum requirements we also provide a recommended specification.  Whilst the software will run on the minimum supported hardware, we strongly recommend that you upgrade to at least the recommended configuration as soon as possible.
