SoftPlan can be run on any PC which has a 64-bit (x64) processor from Intel® or AMD®. SoftPlan is not compatible with any PC which uses an ARM® processor, regardless of operating system or emulator used.
A dual core processor is required at a minimum although multiple (4+) cores and Hyper Threading are preferred and will provide considerable benefits when working in 3D, while being less noticeable but still desirable for non-3D work. Multiple cores are more important than raw processor speed.
SoftPlan can be used with a 64-bit Windows 10 or Windows 8 operating system. The SoftPlan program is not compatible with the macOS® operating system. See Will SoftPlan run on a Mac? for information on using SoftPlan on a Mac® computer.
Configurations such as terminal or server operating systems as well as iOS, Android™, Linux® and Sun® Solaris™ operating systems are not supported.
For information on operating system compatibility with previous versions of SoftPlan see ‘What operating systems (OS) will SoftPlan run on?’.
At a minimum 4 GB. Preferred: 8 GB+ In general “more is better,” but there is a point when adding more no longer provides a significant performance boost. Where that point will be however is difficult to predict.
