In order to use HostMonitor (core of the package) your system must meet the following requirements:

Minimum system requirements
  • Windows Server 2003
    Windows Server 2008
    Windows Server 2008 R2  
    Windows Server 2012 R2 *
    Windows Server 2016
    Windows Server 2019
    Windows Server 2022
  Windows XP Professional  
Windows 7 Professional
Windows 8 *
Windows 10
Windows 11 **
  • Internet Explorer 6
  • Free disk space: 40 MB (if you install HostMonitor only)
  • Minimum screen resolution: 800 x 600


  • Windows Server 2016 or Windows Server 2019
  • Internet Explorer 11
  • Free disk space: 110 MB (for all components)
  • Screen resolution: 1024 x 768 or higher

* 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 (in case you need to use NT Event Log test method).

** Windows 11:
HostMonitor can run on Windows 11 but performance will be much lower in service mode

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 2019.
  • 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).
  • Also we can offer x64 version of HostMonitor. Its not available to everyone and its not needed by everyone, for most of customers x86 (32bit) version works more efficiently and uses less memory. On the other hand, if you have over 100,000 test items plus a lot of remote RCC operators and 1000+ Active RMA agents connected to HostMonitor, then you may need x64 version. It may use over 2GB memory and in some cases works faster. Related forum thread
