Stinger 3.1 will run on a wide variety of platforms - anything from a Core 2 Duo, 1.8Ghz machine should be suitable. However, for reliable 24/7 operation we recommend using a Core i5 CPU with 4Gb of RAM running Windows 7, 8/8.1, or 10, 32bit or 64bit. SATA disk-based hard drives have proven to be the most reliable. A USB slot is required for the Hardware Key version.

Stinger 3.1 and later will run on Windows XP, but will use the legacy audio engine, which does not have all the features available that the new audio engine affords.

Systems running Windows 7, 8/8.1, or 10, 32bit or 64bit, will use the new audio engine, and therefore are the recomended platforms.
