General Requirements

  • CD-ROM drive
  • Two or three button mouse
    • Three button mouse with mouse-wheel is recommended due to new dynamic view controls
  • Network interface card
  • Graphics device capable of displaying at least 16K colors
  • Hardware graphics accelerators can be used in a machine simulation view and for dynamic rotate/pan/zoom in a workpiece view. Due to the large amount of graphics memory required to display the cut stock, graphics memory of 128MB minimum is recommended, and 256MB is preferred.
  • Physical Memory: 512 MB Minimum, 1GB recommended, 2 GB is preferred, especially when running VERICUT concurrent with another large program such as a CAD/CAM product. The Windows XP 64 bit operating system allows access to memory beyond the typical Windows 2GB application limit.

Windows and Windows XP64 Requirements

Disk Space
500 Mb (full installation including Library, Samples, and Help files, and Java Run-Time)

Temporary Disk Space

300 Mb required during installation, in addition to the permanent Disk Space above.

Windows Operating System

VERICUT works on Windows XP, Windows XP64, and Windows 2000. Click here for Vista status.

VERICUT 6.2 is not supported on Windows 98, Windows ME and Windows NT operating systems. Click here for more information.

Java Run Time Environment 1.5.0_06 (included in the VERICUT installation)

Windows Script 5.3 or later is required for the CATIA V5 Interface

TCP/IP Network Protocol installed on the network device

VERICUT on Windows XP64 requires installation of Windows C++ run-time libraries. An administrative user must do the installation. The run-time library installer is included on the VERICUT CD and in the downloadable zip file of the VERICUT installation. The installer file name is vcredist_x64.exe. Double-click on the file to run the installer. The library installer is also available for download at: http://download.cgtech.com/redistributables.zip

VERICUT 6.2 uses different run-time libraries than VERICUT 6.0 and 6.1.The different versions of run-time libraries can be installed together on the same computer if you need to run both 6.0/6.1 and 6.2 concurrently.

Physical Memory

512 MB Minimum, 1GB recommended, 2 GB is preferred, especially when running VERICUT concurrent with another large program such as a CAD/CAM system. The Windows XP64 operating system allows access to memory beyond 32 bit Windows XP’s 2GB application limit.

Processor

Intel Pentium or 100% Pentium-compatible Processor.

1 ghz or faster recommended.

Dual processors improve performance, especially when running other large programs concurrently with VERICUT.

UNIX Requirements

Disk Space

Temp Disk Space

Swap Partition

500 Mb for the first UNIX platform (full installation including Library, Samples and Help files)

30 Mb for each additional UNIX platform type

300 Mb required during installation, in addition to the permanent Disk Space above

2-times physical memory recommended

HP

 

HP-UX 11.11 plus required patches

Minimum Java Runtime: Java RTE 5.0 (1.5.0.04)

Minimum Java Runtime: Java Run-Time 5.0 (1.5.0_06)

Java Run-Time Environment (JRE) for UNIX Systems

VERICUT is tested with the minimum JRE versions described above. Later JRE versions should work, but for practical reasons not all JRE versions can be tested on all platforms.

Following are links to each UNIX vendor’s java information and download site. UNIX system administrators should check these sites for the latest operating system patch information, and ensure that the computer used for VERICUT is at the minimum patch level for the Java Run-Time version being used.
