Frequently Asked Questions

What hardware recommendations do you have?

CodePal Hardware/Software Requirements
PC / Server Requirements:

  • Microsoft Windows 10 Professional
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 or higher.•Access to a user account with Local Administrator privileges to install software
  • 2.0GHZ Multi-core processor minimumoIntel Core i7 or higher
  • 32GB RAM minimum
  • 256GB SSD Minimum (at least 1024GB is recommended).
    • Plan ahead for disk space needs. The addition of other programs and Windows updates can quickly use up available space.
    • Storing Files/Images in the Codepal database can cause the database to require significant amounts of storage.
  • Network connectivity (Internet, LAN,WAN, etc.)

*Tablet devices are almost impossible to upgrade after purchase. For this reason, the Codepal Team recommends purchasing the most drive space and RAM you can afford up front.

**It is not recommended to install the Codepal database on a server that is acting as the network domain controller due to performance issues.
