Essential FTIR System Requirements

The PC requirements are not stringent; we have a 15 year old 750 MHz Pentium III Windows 2000 laptop with 256MB memory it works on.

Operating System

Essential FTIR has been tested on Windows 98, 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

It runs on both 32 and 64 bit version of Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

Essential FTIR cannot be installed on Windows Server operating systems.


Essential FTIR will run in any memory configuration, but more memory gives much better performance. 1GB of memory is the recommended minimum, but better performance will be had with 4GB of memory because the operating system uses a lot of memory.

Disk Space

The installed program consumes about 30MB of disk space.


Minimum screen resolution is 1024x768 screen, but the program is best with at least a 1280x1024 screen.
