Hardware and Software Requirements

SQL Server 2000

The minimum hardware and software requirements for installing and running Notification Services are listed in the following tables.

Hardware Requirements

This table shows hardware requirements for installing the Notification Services engine components. For database system hardware requirements, see "Hardware and Software Requirements for Installing SQL Server 2000" in SQL Server Books Online.

If the databases are on the same server as Notification Services, additional disk space is required for your database tables, log files, and temporary database tables.

Software Requirements

Notification Services consists of engine components, client components, database components, samples, and documentation. Each of these components can be installed by itself, or components can be installed together. Some components have software prerequisites; that software must be installed before you can install the component.

The following sections describe the software prerequisites for the Notification Services components.

Notification Services Engine Components

This table shows the software that must be installed before installing the engine components.

Software Requirement
Operating System Microsoft Windows® 2000 SP2 (or higher) or Windows XP Professional.

Documentation Components

The following table shows the software that must be installed before installing documentation components.

Software Requirement
Internet software Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.01 or higher.
Sample Applications

There are no software requirements for installing the sample applications. However, you must install the engine and database components somewhere (either on the same server or on other servers) to be able to use the sample applications.

The sample applications include a Microsoft Visual Studio® .NET solution file that can be used to edit and run the samples. If you have Visual Studio .NET, you can use the solution files.

For more information, see Notification Services Programming Samples.

Setup Requirements

Before Setup can install Notification Services components, Windows Installer version 2.0 must be installed on the computer. Setup checks for Windows Installer 2.0 and installs it if necessary. If Setup installs Windows Installer, you are prompted to reboot after the Notification Services installation is complete.
