What are the technical requirements?

Version 6 of the Presentia application comprises two main elements:

  • A client application written in Flex for the Adobe AIR runtime. This is installed on users’ computers, and provides the interface for creating and managing presentations.
  • A server application written in .Net. This enables users to share presentations and provides a backup for disaster recovery purposes or to enable users to move computers without losing work. The server application also provides an interface for the management of a Presentia corporate account (eg. for creating Presentia user logins). A centrally managed server is provided by Presentia, which has the server application installed. This is accessible from any computer with an internet connection. Alternatively, an organisation can have the server application installed on a server within their own network.
    Client Application

The technical requirements for the Presentia client application are similar to those for Adobe AIR 2.

* More user data disk space maybe required depending on the size of the users library, 2Gb is a guide to a reasonable allocation for most users.

Important Notes

Windows 2000 and Mac PowerPC are not supported with AIR 2. Users can install and run AIR 1.5 applications, but will not be able to install or update to AIR 2.

Additional Note: If you are using Windows Roaming Profiles it is recommended that you are not logged into Presentia with the same account on 2 or more machines simultaneously. This could cause serious problems with your library content.

Server Application

The technical requirements for the Presentia server application are as follows:

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2003 R2
  • IIS 6 or 7
  • MS .Net Framework 3.5 SP1
  • MS SQL Server Express 2008 R2
  • File storage should ideally be on a local drive. If it is to be installed on a virtual server, then it must be available via a UNC path
  • 2 Gb disk space per user is usually allowed for content storage
  • Depending on the number of users required, and the geography of those users the system may require 1 or more servers to handle web service and administration site requests. For more assistance with assessing these requirements please talk to us about your specific case
