Important Notes

  • These configurations provide the power and stability needed to run your operations. Please contact us for configuration guidance for your company. We can help you determine if your existing hardware is capable of effectively running Keystone.
  • Windows 2000, XP, Server 2003 and Vista are NOT Supported.
  • Windows Server Essentials (Small Business Server) is NOT Supported.
  • Windows 7 and Server 2008 require Service Pack 1.
  • Windows 8 requires the Windows 8.1 Update.
  • Though still supported by Keystone, be aware that Microsoft ended "mainstream support" for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 in January 2015. We strongly recommend Windows 10 for new stand-alone/workstations and Windows Server 2012 R2 or higher for servers.
  • Additional CPU cores and RAM will increase the performance of Keystone and other applications and are strongly recommended.
  • Keystone FX and Datascope require additional RAM on each workstation where they are used.
  • A reliable high-speed internet connection is required at each separate location where Keystone is installed for support purposes.
  • A hard-wired network connection is required for all servers and workstations. Workstations using wireless network connections must be configured to run Keystone using Remote Desktop to maintain data integrity.
