Minimum System Requirements

Operating System

Note: Cropster only supports released versions of MacOS and Windows. This means that pre-release alpha or beta versions are not officially supported by Cropster. Early release software can (and probably will) cause problems on your device.

Our minimum OS system requirements depend on the minimum version supported by the manufacturers (Microsoft, Apple). So we can ensure the greatest stability and security.

  • Windows 7 SP2 or later
  • Mac OS 10.11+
  • Linux

Hardware Requirements

Minimum

  • CPU: AMD or Intel dual-core processor*
    Limited compatibility: ARM-based devices do not work with serial adapters 
  • RAM: 2 GB
  • GPU: Graphics solution with hardware acceleration support
  • HDD: 500 MB free space (additional space for the OS may be required - it is generally recommended to have abundant free space as other system and software updates may require this)
  • USB standard-A port or a compatible adapter (for Phidgets)
  • Display: 1366 x 768 resolution (without gas/airflow control)

Recommended

  • CPU: AMD, Intel quad-core or Apple M1 processor
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • GPU: Graphics solution with hardware acceleration support
  • HDD: > 1 GB free space (additional space for the OS may be required - it is generally recommended to have abundant free space as other system and software updates may require this)
  • USB standard-A port or a compatible adapter (for Phidgets)
  • Display: 1920 x 1080 resolution

Other Requirements

  • A stable internet connection is required for Roasting Intelligence (RI) to download profiles, green lots, machines, workers, authenticate usernames, and upload roasts to our servers. You'll need to download and run RI while connected to the internet at least once; afterwards, you can roast without an internet connection, but will need to connect to update your inventory or reference curves and to receive updates.
  • While the software was not specifically designed for a touch screen, all of the comment buttons work really well with a touch screen.
  • RI will not run on an iPad or Chromebook.
