Xactimate System Requirements
Xactimate System Requirements
Before installing Xactimate on your computer, it is critical that your computer meets the minimum system requirements for Xactimate.
Xactimate version 27 runs on the following operating systems:
• Windows XP Service Pack 3
• Windows Vista 32-bit
• Windows Vista 64-bit (Business or Ultimate)
• Windows 7 32-bit
• Windows 7 64-bit
Xactimate can be used on desktops, laptops, tablet PCs, convertibles, or netbooks that meet these system requirements:
• Processor Speed: At least a single core processor of 1.5GHz or faster (examples: Intel Pentium 4 1.5GHz or AMD Athlon XP 1500+)
• RAM: At least 1 GB of RAM
• Hard Drive Space: At least 5GB of continual free space and a 5400 RPM drive are required to run Xactimate
• Monitor Resolution: 1024x600 or higher
• Internet Access
• A DVD-ROM Drive
Important! If you have a previous version of Xactimate already installed on your computer, it is critical that you back up your data using Data Transfer
before updating to Xactimate version 27. (If you receive an error message during the data transfer process, resolve that problem before updating
to version 27.) The installation of Xactimate version 27 will overwrite Xactimate version 25 on the same computer. Any data that is not backed up
beforehand will not be usable in Xactimate version 25 after it is upgraded to Xactimate version 27. After updating to Xactimate version 27, you may need
to manually retrieve some assignments from your Xactimate version 25 backup.
Xactimate Installation
This chapter walks you through the installation of Xactimate. It provides you with step-by-step instructions for installing Xactimate on stand-alone
computers. By following the instructions in this chapter, you should have Xactimate installed and ready to use in no time at all.
Multiple-License Version: Because it is common practice for service providers to work for multiple insurance carrier companies at the same time,
multiple versions of Xactimate can now be installed on the same computer. Each version of Xactimate will have its own icon and database, and it will be
registered to display in the “Add or Remove Programs” section of your operating system. Also, each version can be installed and uninstalled separately.
If you uninstall the standard version before uninstalling the multiple-license version, the multiple-license program will be inaccessible. We recommend
you make a backup of your multiple license data before uninstalling the standard release.
Attention! Some profiles are only available in specific versions of Xactimate. The data in these profiles will only be available within the approved
version. If you require multiple versions of Xactimate to run all your profiles, you may want to consider purchasing a multiple license to make sure all
your data is still accessible. You can order the multiple license by going to http://www.xactimate.com and clicking on the “Order” tab or by calling 1-800424-9228.
Note: For network installations, see www.xactware.com/27. The following instructions are for stand-alone computers (computers that do not share data
with other computers) only.
Before installing Xactimate on your computer, it is critical that your computer meets the minimum system requirements for Xactimate. These
requirements are listed in System Requirements above.
