For an Indy system, at least 48 Mbytes of physical memory is needed. The performance of SoftWindows will be improved with more memory. 64 Mbytes is recommended.
For an O2 system, you need at least 96 Mbytes, with 128 Mbytes recommended.
|Note: For each additional Mbyte of PC memory one extra Mbyte of workstation RAM is recommended for best performance.|
The figures listed below are approximate, and should be used only as a rough guide.
