HelpDesk 5.1. System Requirements & Compatibl


What are the System Requirements and Compatibility for Tele-Support HelpDesk 5.1.1?


EVERY O/S environment is different, no two computer are exactly the same.  It is your responsibility to fully test Tele-Support HelpDesk in your environment before making a purchase and/or moving a licensed copy of the software to a new environment.

ALL installers for Tele-Support HelpDesk must be installed by using the right-click, RunAs ADMIN user for the first time. And launch the .exe the same way the first time.  This ensure all the .dll files are properly registered with full admin rights.

Tele-Support HelpDesk has two main sets of files.  SERVER and CLIENT.  Can install onto a 64-bit O/S, but your operating systems must support 32-bit applications.

SERVER Files can be installed on:

Server 2012 R2

Server 2008 R2

*Windows 10 non-home

*Windows 8 non-home

*Windows 7 non-home

*When using a non-server operating system as your file server and for your clients, you may need to make all users ADMIN users.  You will need to disable the UAC (User Account Controls) for each user.  Check your Microsoft EULA as to the number of .CAL licenses are available.  Usually 20, but you are responsible to verify.
