* Please make sure your OS has the latest updates before installing BP Allied and you continue with any updates after that in a timely manner.

** We do not recommend the use of a Wireless Network or Wireless Internet connections to connect a server and client computer together.  Although wireless connections can be used successfully, it is the End Users responsibility to provide solid Network Connectivity between the Client and Server computers and Bp Allied Software will not be held responsible for the performance of the program if this is not available. If WiFi must be used, then we suggest having equipment capable of 5Ghz WiFi connectivity rather than 2.4Ghz.

*** Reminder: These are minimum requirements, if you go under these your experience will be subpar and may limit our support options.

**** This should be business grade hardware suitable for business applications.
