AIMS Software/Hardware Compatibility

Software Compatibility

AIMS will run under Windows 7(Service Pack 1), Windows 8, and Windows 10— if you have a relatively new computer, it will work. For the first installation of AIMS you must have administrator rights on the computer you will be installing it on. AIMS is NOT compatible to native Mac machines, but many Mac users are running it with Windows emulator software. While an Internet connection is not required, it makes sending and receiving update files much easier. Network installations can be accommodated, although special software might be necessary for simultaneous multi-user access (contact AIMS Customer Service for more information).

Additional Information:

BACKUPS! Nearly every week, we talk to someone who has lost their data, whether by natural disaster (yes, floods and fire happen to real people) or simply by a corrupted file (through no fault of the user). So not only should you make backups to your main computer, make a backup to an external device; while a CD will work, it's easier to use USB drives (also known by many other names: thumb drive, memory stick, flash drives and probably more).
