Short technical requirements and considerations for running
CDendro and CooRecorder
Operating system: Only Windows! May run on other (e.g. MAC) systems when they have Windows installed (emulated).
Windows versions: Windows 7 and later. Current CDendro&CooRecorder version 9 will also run on Windows XP.
Requires .NET Framework version 3.5 to be installed on your system - this is normally already installed on all modern Windows systems.
RAM memory/Primary memory: At least 3 GB of RAM. Will run on less but it will then not be possible to open some too big image files in CooRecorder.
As a reference: On my 64 bit Windows 10 machine with 16 GB RAM memory, I can open a big image which is 84000 pixels wide and 4000 pixels high, though it takes about six seconds
to load (open) that file. After loading the program and image updates run as fast as when handling a normal small image.
Display: At least 1280x800, but 1680x1050 recommended with 24-bit color and 512 MB of dedicated VRAM, 2 GB is recommended.
(Big images are a limiting factor! You have to experiment to find out what you can open in CooRecorder. From a big cross-cut of a tree,
scanned in high resolution, you will probably need to crop your image to only show the path along which you want to measure.
Please be aware that your reasonably small but compressed .jpg file on your hard disk memory will expand quite a lot when you open it.)
20 MB of available hard-disk space for installation. What takes space on your hard disk will be your own scanned image files!
The size of text and other items in Windows should be set to 100%, i.e. you cannot run CDendro or CooRecorder with e.g. the text magnified
by Windows as that will make some texts unvisible. This limitation might be a hindrance to some people.
Internet connection is necessary for access of documentation (help texts) which is only available online at www.cybis.se/forfun/dendro
Language: Only available in English.
We sincerely recommend all customers to first test and try out the TRIAL version of CDendro & CooRecorder before ordering a copy of the full version!
