System Requirements

The Athena Impact Estimator for Buildings Version 5 is a C# (C-Sharp) software application and has been tested on a PC system with the following minimum configuration:

• Intel® Pentium® 4, Pentium M, or Intel Centrino® 1.3GHz (or compatible) processor.
• Microsoft® Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, or Windows 10
• 512 MB of RAM (2 GB or more is recommended depending on the operating system requirements).
Approximately 100 MB of memory is required to load the application. When loading large projects that have many assemblies, an additional 200 MB of memory (or more) may be required. Additional memory is required for each project active in the Impact Estimator at the same time.
• 2 GB of Virtual Memory.
• 675 MB of available hard-disk space is required for installing the application.
• Color monitor with 16-bit color video card.
• CD-ROM drive if installing from CD.
• It is easiest to install the Athena Impact Estimator for Buildings with an account that has Administrative privileges (not a Limited User Account if you are using Windows 7/8/10). If you have UAC (User Account Control) enabled on your computer, the installation process will request UAC elevation and will ask for the "Administrator" password when using Windows 7/8/10. You may require assistance from your Network Administrator to install the software.
