Windows 2012 / Windows 8:
HostMonitor can run on Windows 8 Pro and Windows Server 2012 however we do not recommend these systems due to some problems in Windows API related to Event Logs.

Windows x64:
  • HostMonitor is 32-bit application, however it can be used on Windows x64 Edition running on x86-64 (AMD64) systems (not on Itanium/IA-64). E.g. you can start HostMonitor on Windows XP Professional x64 Edition or Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition.
  • If you are using Windows x64 Edition and you want to setup ODBC Logging or ODBC test method, you should setup ODBC datasources using 32-bit ODBC Data Source Administrator (e.g. C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe).

Remote Monitoring Agents have different system requirements as they are designed for various platforms. You may check system requirements in the following sections:
