Installation

Specifi™ has an automatic installation set-up procedure. An Internet connection is required for the installation.

Every PC needs a different installation code, it is not possible to use the same installation code in more than one PC. Specifi™ requires administrator privileges for installation and upgrade (ATTENTION: it does not mean to login as Administrator).

Specifi LLC offers also an under payment additional service for the installation of Client and Server with client PCs configuration. During Specifi™ Server installation the technician will install and configure PostgreSQL in your server. It will permit only to share projects and libraries with the Client users.

Specifi™ can not be installed and used directly in the server. The Server and network configuration must follow the minimum requirements, as described at “Server Minimum Requirement”.

Installation of Postgre SQL and Specifi™ database into your server by remote connection

Please note that for the correct installation of Specifi™ the current Windows user must have the administrator privileges temporary elevated. We would like to suggest you to verify these minimum requirements:

  • Windows Server 2003, 2008 or 2012 Operating System installed
  • 4 Gb of RAM
  • 1 Folder, called for example “Specifi”, shared in read-write mode with full access from any client pc
  • If Specifi’s users need to work also out of office (with the laptop) and not connected to your LAN, you need also a VPN connection (in this case you need 2 network card installed in your server)

Then we pray you to verify to have these minimum requirements for a better performance:

  • 1Gbit speed lan connection.
