PubWorks System Requirements


To effectively run PubWorks on your office computers the general rule-of-thumb is if you can run XP you can run PubWorks. More specifically, minimum workstation requirements are as follows:

  • Windows XP,  Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10
  • 17" Monitor with 1028x768 resolution or better
  • 3-4gb RAM
  • 100gb Hard Drive
  • Ethernet Connection

SQL Server

PubWorks provides exceptional performance in the SQL Server environment and is compatible with all versions of Microsoft SQL Server including:

  • SQL Server 2005
  • SQL Server 2008
  • SQL Server 2012 (all versions)
  • SQL Server 2014
  • SQL Server Express (all versions)

Web Server

In order to run the optional PubWorks Online Service Request Module, you must be hosting your agency's website with Microsoft's IIS.

Cloud Storage

Think about getting the cloud if you:

  • Have offices with a robust internet connection
  • Have poor local areas network (LAN) performance
  • Need to access to your data outside of the office (from home or from hotspots around town)

What's needed: You need to be a PubWorks SQL customer.  PubWorks Access customer will first need to upgrade to SQL Server.

Steps: Once you're ready to move, simply send us a backup of you SQL Server database, we'll migrate it to the cloud and adjust your configuration (a minor change to your UDL file) so PubWorks can find you cloud-base database.
