  • This is a 64-bit VM, and requires a 64-bit host OS and a virtualization product that can support a
    64-bit guest OS.
  • This VM uses 4 GB of total RAM. The total system memory required varies depending on the size
    of your data set and on the other processes that are running.
  • The demo VM file is in a 7-zip format and is approximately 2 GB. Feel free to mirror internally or externally to minimize bandwidth usage.
  • To use the VMware VM, you must use a player compatible with WorkStation 8.x or higher: Player 4.x or higher, ESXi 5.x or higher, or Fusion 4.x or higher. Older versions of WorkStation can be used to create a new VM using the same virtual disk (VMDK file), but some features in VMware Tools won't be available.
