Operating System Requirements

 

Windows

eForms will run on any current Windows version (32 bit or 64 bit) with .NET Framework 2.0 installed. For users of older versions of Windows that are no longer supported by Microsoft, we cannot guarantee all features of eForms will work and we may not be able to resolve any problems you encounter while using them.

 

Apple

eForms will run on current Windows versions on Mac computers using Boot Camp (or similar dual-boot systems) or Parallels (or similar virtualization systems). See File Locations for further details.

 

Terminal Server

eForms will run on Terminal Servers that support Windows applications. Refer to the documentation for your Terminal Server for recommended installation procedures.

 

Novell

We do not guarantee eForms to work on Novell networks, although some clients report success. If you do try, ensure that file and path names are no longer than eight characters each as Novell does not always correctly resolve long file names.

 

Hardware Requirements

 

Workstation (required for all installations)

The workstation on which eForms will be used (either as a stand-alone application or in a client-server environment) must be capable of supporting a current version of Windows and meet the hardware requirements of the Windows version installed on it.

 

Print and Electronic Output

eForms creates much of its printed output as Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files which can be printed using any Windows compatible printer. Adobe Reader is not required for the generation of these reports but is required to view them on-screen. Returns can  be filed on paper (required a printer), CD or DVD media (requires a CD or DVD writer) or as an XML file submitted via the Internet (requires an Internet connection).

 

Data Import from Excel

Microsoft Excel must be installed in order to import data from an XLS file. (Importing from XLSX files is not supported.)
