Hardware and software requirements

To use Analytica, you need the following quite modest minimum configuration:

  • Operating system:
    • Windows Server 2003 or later (i.e., 2003, 2008, 2012 or 2016) or Windows 7 or later (Windows 8, Windows 10 or Windows 11).
      • When using through Remote Desktop Connection, the server side must be Windows Server 2012 or later.
    • 64-bit edition of Windows.
    • Sadly, it doesn't run on Macintosh OS, but it runs fine in VMWare Fusion or Parallels running Windows on a Mac.
    • You can view and run Analytica models on the web via most browsers on almost any operating system using the Analytica Cloud Player (ACP).
  • RAM: Minimum of 1 GB RAM. For large models in 64-bit Windows, up to 16 GB RAM can be helpful.
  • Disk space: About 60 MB. For very large models using virtual memory because they need more memory than available RAM, you can improve performance substantially by configuring 64-bit Windows to maintain its Virtual Memory page file on a Solid State Drive (SSD).
  • Display: For large models, especially when working with a spreadsheet or other applications, it's helpful to have a large screen, or even two screens.
