Recommended System Requirements

E-COM will run in a Macintosh or Windows environment, or a combination of the two. The system requirements vary based on the server/client options selected by the school district. Those options are as follows:

Option 1: The district installs both the server and the client software.

Option 2: The district installs the client software and Portage Bay Solutions hosts the server.

Current minimum system requirements are detailed below for both these options. The requirements will change in the near future, as we go to using FileMaker v12 in Spring 2013. Please see those requirements below the current ones.
