RAOB System Requirements

These are the minimum requirements your system must have in order to run the RAOB programs. For techincal assistance, please contact ERS.

Operating Systems:
- MS Windows 98, ME, NT 4.0, and 2000.
- MS Windows XP (both 32 and 64 bit).
- MS Windows Vista (both 32 and 64 bit).
- MS Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10 (both 32 and 64 bit).
- MS Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2008 R2, 2012.
Region and Language
Must use the "English (United States)" option for non-Unicode programs.
Virtual Systems
RAOB is not designed to function on "virtual PC" or "remote desktop" systems. RAOB may work on some "virtual" and "remote" systems, but it is best to download and test the RAOB Reader program before purchasing a registered RAOB program.
Computers with less than a 1000 MHz processor will experience sluggish performance when processing large multi-sounding datafiles or when using the program's many "graphically-interactive" features.
Computer Memory
30 MB of RAM or greater. More memory is better.
Physical Memory
150 MB of hard disk space. Extra is required for large/numerous datafiles.
Disk Drives
A CD-ROM drive is no longer required for initial installation, because downloadable installation files are now automatically provided upon initial purchase. Note, however, that each initial installation requires use of a PC-unique Continuation Code to complete the installation. During installation, you will be prompted with an Activation Key and Serial Number, which must be provided to ERS, which will quickly respond with the Continuation Code necessary to complete the installation.
Display Monitor
Optimum screen resolution is 1920 X 1080. RAOB images may not be properly displayed on some smaller screens associated with some laptops.
Cursor Control
PC mouse or compatible pointing device.
