System requirements

  • SSPR runs on Windows, uses .NET and requires very little resources beyond those recommended by Microsoft for the OS and SQL Server; minimum recommended operating system is Windows Server 2012.
  • Four components: the website, a central Windows service, a maintenance utility, and the SQL Server database. Minimum supported version of Microsoft SQL Server is 2012; supports free Express version of SQL Server. SQL Server needs to be installed on a local system and configured for network access.
  • Components can be on different machines, on the same machine or hosted on a single VM
  • Website portion runs on IIS & uses ASP.NET. Since it involves passwords, support for HTTPS is required. Installation package will install IIS if needed & will ensure an existing IIS is properly configured for use with SSPR.
  • Free .NET framework 4.5.2 (or newer) needs to be installed on any systems hosting the central service, website, or maintenance utility. The installer will install .NET if needed.
