MS SQL Server

For small systems, 2-4 users, the use of SQL Express 2008 or SQL Express 2012 is recommended. The disadvantage is sql jobs cannot be created; i.e. auto purging of log tables.

All other systems should have the full version of MS SQL 2008 or SQL 2012.

Operating Systems

For servers Windows 2008 or 2012 should be used.
For clients Windows 7 or 8. The software does run under Windows XP Pro.

MS Terminal Server

If you going to virtualize using MS terminal server products, remember that Server 2008 only comes with 2 connections, which should be used for support. Purchase enough licenses to support all clients.
