Shared Phidgets System Requirements

<< Back to the SharedPhidgets page

  • Windows 2000, XP, Vista:
    The toolkit can only be installed on computers with the Windows operating system. We have tested the toolkit on Windows XP and 2000, however, you maybe can also use the toolkit with Windows 98/95.
    You can also install our toolkit with Windows Vista; we've tested the toolkit, tools and developer library with the Windows Vista Business edition.
  • .NET Framework 1.1 or 2.0:
    To run .NET software you need this runtime installed. On most systems this runtime is probably already installed (of course if you have Visual Studio). If the .NET 1.1 runtime isn't installed, you can download it at the Microsoft download page.
  • Visual Studio 2002, 2003, and 2005:
    If you want to develop new applications using the toolkit then you need to install Visual Studio.NET 2002, 2003, or 2005 before installing the toolkit. The toolbox items of the developer library are installed automatically to Visual Studio 2002, 2003, and 2005.
  • Network:
    If you want to use/create distributed applications, your network has to be already setup; for local development of applications, no network is required. You can check your connections to other computers in the network with the Ping command (instructions here).
