System requirements

You will find that you can run SiteKiosk on almost any Windows PC. We do recommend, however, that you purchase quality when picking your system's components as no-name products will add to your cost in the long terms as they will require more support and maintenance. For instance, machines with no-name memory chips and poor cooling will cause your entire systems to be become unstable.

As a general rule, we encourage you to always install the latest Service Packs and Windows updates!

1. Hardware

1.1 Minimum requirements
1.2 Recommended system

3. Older operating systems

3.1 Windows 95 (can no longer be used with current versions)
We have not been supporting Windows95 since Sitekiosk version 5.0. However, you can still download Version 4.97 from our website under Version History. You may also require the Winsock update.
3.2 Windows NT 4.0 (can no longer be used with current versions)
Starting with version 6, SiteKiosk no longer officially supports Windows NT. We cannot recommend this system without reservations as you may not be able to use all the devices you want to as this operating system does not support the USB standard. In addition, you will not be able to use the "System Security Wizard" (available in versions 5.5 or higher) with this operating system. 

You can use Version 5.5 as an alternative.

3.4 Windows 98/SE (can no longer be used with current versions)
We stopped supporting Windows 98 officially with SiteKiosk version 6.5. An alternative version you can use is Version 6.2.
Limitations when running Windows 98:
  1. The "System Security Wizard" (versions 5.5 or higher) cannot be used on this operating system.
  2. The remote maintenance tool SiteRemote cannot be used in combination with Win98/ME clients
3.5 Windows ME (can no longer be used with current versions)
We stopped supporting Windows ME officially with SiteKiosk version 6.5. An alternative version you can use is Version 6.2
Limitations when running Windows ME:
  1. The "System Security Wizard" (versions 5.5 or higher) cannot be used on this operating system.
  2. The remote maintenance tool SiteRemote cannot be used in combination with Win98/ME clients.
3.6 Windows 2000 (can no longer be used with current versions)
SiteKiosk Version 6.6 or lower will run without a hitch on Windows 2000. As far as stability goes, Win2K is still a system that we can recommend.

SiteKiosk Version 7.1 or lower will run without a hitch on Windows Embedded PoS 1.1.
