Microsoft Office 2016
Asta Powerproject works with Microsoft Office versions from 2010 to 2016.

Microsoft Windows Server
Asta Powerproject Version 14 is approved for use with Microsoft Windows 2008 Server R2, Windows 2012 Server R1 and R2 and Windows 2016 Server (excluding non-GUI versions are not supported).

Virtual Environments
Asta Powerproject Version 14 is supported on VMWare ESX, VMWare ESXi and when using VMWare Workstation. Other virtual environments are not currently supported. Please contact our Technical Support team for information on licensing in a VMWare environment.

Home editions
“Home” editions of Microsoft Windows operating systems do not include some of the technologies that are required to fully operate Asta Powerproject and its activation technologies, so these editions are not supported environments for Asta Powerproject. If using a “Home” edition of a Microsoft Windows operating system is a requirement, consider using Asta Powerproject SaaS instead, which does work in this environment.

Previous versions of Asta Powerproject
For information on previous releases of Asta Powerproject please review the information provided in the Support Portal.

Asta Powerproject is also available via a cloud hosted environment (Software as a Service, SaaS).  To access Asta Powerproject SaaS, you will need a stable internet connection and ability to download & install a Citrix client (see https://www.citrix.co.uk/products/receiver).  Citrix clients are available for Windows PC, Mac, Linux, Chrome OS, Android, iOS and Windows Phone.  Unlike the standard Asta Powerproject client, Asta Powerproject SaaS works with “Home” editions of Microsoft Windows operating systems.

A pointing device such as a mouse is highly recommended for interacting with Asta Powerproject SaaS.

There is no set system requirement for Asta Powerproject Enterprise as it depends on the number of users and the database size. For example, an implementation with 10 users and a large database will require a higher hardware specification to an implementation with 2 users and a small database.

At the start of each implementation there is a 1-day Basic Process Design meeting where we meet with the customer to discuss how they want to use the system. On the basis of this session, we recommend the necessary hardware.

Version 14 Enterprise server is approved for use as service on Windows 2003 server, Windows 2008 server R1 and R2 (32 or 64 bit), Windows 2012 server R1 and R2 and Windows 2016 Server (please note non GUI versions of 2012 and 2016 are not supported).
