System Requirements
The specific system requirements that must be met to use the Setup Launcher depend on for which systems the products it is intednded to install were developed. However, as most of our applications are backward compatible, this is typically a personal computer system with an Intel or AMD Central Processing Unit (CPU), Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows 98, or any successor of these Windows versions (including 64 bit Windows 10 editions), Microsoft Installer version 1.1 or higher, and adequate, free disk space.

How to Acquire
This application can not be acquired. It is made available to you as part of other, SST products only.
*1 This is the official, Microsoft name of the technology we employ in order to distribute and install most of our own products. However, the name "Microsoft Windows Installer" can easily be misinterpreted as an installation application that installs the operating system Microsoft Windows. In the interest of clarity we have therefore decided to use the term "Microsoft Installer" for this technology instead.
