Microsoft Windows Server

Virtual Environments
Powerproject Version 16 is supported on Microsoft Hyper-V, VMWare ESX, VMWare ESXi and when using VMWare Workstation. Other virtual environments are not currently supported. Please contact our technical support team for information on licencing in a VMWare environment.

Home editions
“Home” editions of Microsoft Windows operating systems do not include some of the technologies that are required to fully operate Powerproject and its activation technologies, so these editions are not supported environments for Powerproject. If using a “Home” edition of a Microsoft Windows operating system is a requirement, consider using Powerproject SaaS instead, which does work in this environment.

Powerproject Enterprise

There is no set system requirement for Powerproject Enterprise as it depends on the number of users and the database size. For example, an implementation with 10 users and a large database will require a higher hardware specification to an implementation with two users and a small database.

At the start of each implementation there is a 1-day Basic Process Design meeting where we meet with the customer to discuss how they want to use the system. On the basis of this session, we recommend the necessary hardware.
