CS Professional Suite applications are designed for professional production work. Our system requirements are based on the assumption that professional accounting firms replace their computer hardware and operating systems approximately every three years.
While our software may operate on less powerful hardware and operating systems, we don’t believe it will perform at a level suitable for production work in those environments. Of course, as processing speed and RAM are increased, software performance will also improve. We recommend business-class computers, which generally offer higher levels of performance than home models when running business applications.
Note: We do not support the Home edition of Windows operating systems.
Whether you’re looking to upgrade a single workstation or replace your entire network, please consult our System Requirements page for a comprehensive list of requirements and recommendations when using our applications. This page includes helpful info on the following topics and more:
- Operating System
- Integration with Microsoft® Office
- Product-Specific Requirements
- Browser and Modem or Internet Connection
- Networks/Remote Access
- CD or DVD Drive
- Email and Website Accounts (Optional)
Windows XP Note: For most CS Professional Suite applications, we’ll end support for Windows XP on June 30, 2014. For GoSystem Tax RS, we’ll end support for Windows XP in November 2014.
