What Are The System Requirements For Operation?
If your computer runs any version of MS Windows, you should have no trouble running this application... famous last words. It doesn't take much memory, disk space, screen size or "Pentassium" to make it work... just a simple MS Windows computer that doesn't crash much will be fine. Note: If you have a newer budgetary computer without a real serial port, then you will have to get a USB to serial port adapter from a local electronics retailer... but they are not all made equally. For example, we know the Radio Shack adapter has worked on Win98 and WinME, but will give you the "blue screen of death" on WinXP. However, the Belkin F5U109 adaptor, available at Office Depot and other retailers, is rated to work with Win98 through WinXP and does so quite well.
