PZFlex is compatible with five PC operating systems: Windows 7, Windows XP Pro, Windows Vista, Linux Red Hat Enterprise, and Linux SuSe. You needn’t lock into one system at purchase, as all versions are supplied on a single disk, easily transported between office and home.
We recommend a 64-bit operating system combined with 64-bit hardware. Support of 32-bit hardware ends in Decemeber 2011, except under previously negotiated contracts.
Two CPUs are supported per PZFlex license (multi-core CPUs count as singles). We recommend purchasing dual cores to benefit fully from the software’s speed and large modeling-size capability. Quad cores add little value over dual cores, as memory speed is essentially the same for both.
Four gigabytes of memory are more than sufficient, and two are adequate for most modeling applications. Four to eight gigabytes are best for the more complex models common to telecommunications and a few other industries (of course, one can never have enough memory).
