Minimum system requirements to run Amatrol’s multimedia locally on a PC:

  • 1 GHz Processor
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 100 GB hard drive space
  • Windows Operating System (tested OSes are Windows 7 32-Bit, Windows Server 2012 32-Bit, Windows Server 2012 64-Bit, Windows Server 2012 R2 32-Bit, Windows Server 2012 R2 64-Bit)

  • CD-ROM drive for installing curriculum if locally installed
  • Network capability if curriculum is to be on a server. Wireless Networks: 8 Mbps per connected PC (i.e. a 56 Mbps wireless network should service no more than 7 PCs)

Amatrol eLearning Requirements – Requirements for Amatrol’s eLearning are different from the requirements for locally installed software.

**Important to note:

Authorware Incompatible with New Flash Player Version 19.0.0185

As of September 21st, 2015, Flash released version 19.0.0185 of the Flash Player, which is incompatible with Authorware that was used in previous versions of Amatrol’s multimedia.  If your multimedia uses the Authorware theme, verify that your Flash Player browser plugin has not been updated beyond version 18.0.0.232 for proper operation.

Amatrol Multimedia Local Server Computer Requirements

Minimum system requirements for a local server computer to serve Amatrol’s multimedia to local client computers:

  • 1 GHz Processor
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 100 GB hard drive
  • Server Software (tested OSes are Windows Server 2003 32-Bit, Windows Server 2003 64-Bit, Windows Server 2008 32-Bit, Windows Server 2008 64-Bit, Windows Server 2008 R2 32-Bit, Windows Server 2008 R2 64-Bit)**
  • CD-ROM drive for installing curriculum
  • Wired Networks: 100-Base T
  • Wireless Networks: 8 Mbps per connected PC (i.e. a 56 Mbps wireless network should service no more than 7 PCs)

Amatrol’s multimedia content can have a significant impact on the network. Over the course of an hour, each student could go through as much as 100MB of content. With just 20 students, that’s 2GB/hr, or an average of about 5Mbps. While this is not a constant stream, there are spikes and drop-offs in network impact, so a 54Mbps wireless network will be susceptible to delays when several stations are hitting the server at once.

**Important to note:

Windows Server software is recommended for the server. Windows 7 and Windows 8 is limited to 5 simultaneous connections. This indicates that Windows 7 or Windows 8 cannot be used as the server software when more than 5 students need to run multimedia at the same time.
