winHR System Requirements

winHR System Requirements

Solution Architecture
The back-end database is developed by Elevatesoft ( It is a robust, industry standard database with Client/Server capability designed around ease of installation and operation (set and forget).

Server Requirements

Database Engine
The server runs the client-server database engine as a service. This service handles all data requests from clients(workstations) and sends back the results. The service is accessible via the TCP/IP address of the hosting server. It is not necessary for the clients (workstations) to be able to directly access or see the data directory.

winHR&OHS Executable - WinHR_OHS.exe
The winHR&OHS executable sits on the server and is accessible via a shortcut to the executable. Theexecutable is directed to the location of the database engine via an ini file (HR_Loc.ini). The executable needs to be shared for access by the client. 

Memory Requirements
The database engine is very efficient and requires only a small amount of memory. The minimum requirement is set at 512Mb. The exact needs depend on the number of users who will be accessing the application and what other functions the server is used for.
A formula can be used to calculate the rough estimates based on users and number of tables that are likely to be open at a given time. 

Processing requirements are modest and depends on the number of users that will be making requests at any given time.

Client-server requires an NT-based operating system and TCP/IP networking protocols. The database engine can be loaded as a standard taskbar application or a service. All Microsoft server operating systems are supported. There is an expectation that future Microsoft server operating systems will be supported.

Hard disk with at least 50Mb free plus data requirements is needed. Data depends on the size and amount of data being stored (in particular size of photos), but 1 Gigabyte is most likely ample for your needs.

Workstation Requirements
To run winHR/OHS simply click on the shortcut. There are no client-side installation requirements which makes deployment very simple.

PC Recommendation
We recommend the following minimum requirements for workstation operation:
· PC with Pentium processor (or equivalent) with at least 1Gigabyte of RAM
· 16-bit, 96dpi, 1028 x 768 screen resolution
· Windows-compatible printer
· All Windows Client Operation Systems are supported

· Developed using Borland Inprise Delphi 5 using state of the art and award winning components such as QuantumGrids and ReportBuilder with full export capabilities; PDF, Word, Excel etc
· Client-server capable database engine, read-write ODBC database driver for system integration
· No client side installation requirements
