Note: Users need full registry privileges during the installation and access to the keys under HKEY_CURRENT_USER in the registry after installation.
DBArtisan requires Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 or later.
IDERA recommends the following minimum hardware requirements:
- 1 GHz or faster CPU
- 3 GB of RAM
- 1 GB of free disk space

Operating System Requirements
DBArtisan supports the following operating systems:
- Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10 (32-bit and 64-bit)
- Windows Server 2008 SP1 and 2008 R2 (32-bit and 64-bit), 2012, 2012 R2, 2016, and 2019
Windows 7 Support Notes
Windows 7 provides two user types: Standard users and Administrators. DBArtisan can be installed or uninstalled by an administrator or by a standard user using an administrator token. Standard users can run DBArtisan. For the purpose of running DBArtisan, default standard user token privileges should not be modified. Modifying standard user token privileges can result in licensing issues that will prevent DBArtisan from operating correctly.
32-bit versus 64-bit Application Considerations and Restrictions
If you install the 64-bit version of DBArtisan, and you are using custom drivers, you must be using 64-bit versions of those drivers when using the 64-bit version of DBArtisan. Similarly, 32-bit versions of custom drivers must be used with the 32-bit DBArtisan installation.
For version control integration, if you install the 64-bit version of DBArtisan, you can work with either a 32-bit or 64-bit MSSCCI provider. The feature is controlled from the Options Editor's Version Control tab (File > Options > General > Version Control).
