GeneLinker™ Gold requires a system that meets or exceeds the following specification:
Microsoft Windows® NT 4.0 Service Pack 6a, Windows® 2000, XP, 95, 98 and ME. Windows® 2000, NT and XP are the preferred platforms as they are more stable and manage memory more effectively
256 MB RAM (512 MB RAM recommended)

GeneLinker™ Platinum is typically pre-installed on an IBM system that meets or exceeds the following specification:

2.5 GB of RAM
Single Intel Xeon-2200 2.2 GHz processor

For floating licenses (Floating Server, Floating Client), GeneLinker™ requires a TCP/IP network, and that the TCP/IP protocol be installed on both the license server and the user workstations. In addition, one of the three protocols SNMP, NetBEUI, or IPX/SPX must be installed on both the server and the workstations (GeneLinker™ uses the protocol service to determine the hostid of the system). Any mix of the three protocols on the server and on different workstations is acceptable. By default, many of these protocols are available.
For other licenses (Licensed Client (node-locked), Demo), there are no network requirements.
We recommend that license servers (for floating licenses) be installed on machines that are running the Windows® NT or Windows® 2000 operating system.
