What are the recommended computer specifications?

The minimum computer requirements are a processor supporting SSE2 instruction set, Windows 7, Enterprise Edition with Service Pack 1 (32 or 64 bit) with 200 MB for the installation and up to 4GB of RAM (32 bit) or more for 64 bit.  At least 1 G of free space for storing data.  The software is optimized for high resolution wide-screen monitors, minimum 1440 x 900.  As with all software, the speed at which it operates is dependent on the specification of your hardware as well as the size and complexity of the data being handled.  For better performance we recommend Quad-Core CU, 3.2 GHz or above and 8 G of memory.
