  • Monitor: 24 inch or greater recommended. Dual monitors highly recommended.
  • Mouse: Laser mouse with mouse wheel recommended.

eTakeoff Dimension configured in a Client Server configuration

The eTakeoff Server has minimal requirements especially if it's only used to store data. If the server is also going to act as a workstation, it will need to adhere to the requirements above. 

Minimum Hardware Requirements for Faircom DB V11 (and later) for Windows

  • 1 GHz CPU
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 250 MB Disk space + space for your data + index files (assuming default 120MB transaction LOG_SPACE setting in ctsrvr.cfg)

Note: Additional memory will be needed for additional users beyond 16 concurrent users and larger data and index caches. 

Cache sizes larger than 2GB require a 64-bit version of the OS and c-treeACE.
