NTCS
 

>= Intel Core i3 v1
2 GB free RAM for NTCS Software (total Memory depending on operating system, ,
>= 2 GB for Windows 7 SP1
4 GB for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10

The storage space requirements depend on the BMD product used and by the amount of user data.
However, at least 40 GB of free space is required.

 

2.2. Recommended System for BMD5.5 / NTCS

 

These are the recommended specifications for client workstations, which are integrated in the network and which use BMD software centrally on the server.
 

NTCS
 

>= Intel Core i3 v2
4 GB free RAM for NTCS Software (total Memory depending on operating system, ,
>= 4 GB for Windows 7, for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10
SSD Drive

The existing resources must not fall below windows requirements.
 40 GB free hard drive space.

 


The storage space requirements depend on the BMD product used and by the amount of user data.
However, at least 40 GB of free space is required.
 

 

NTCS Power Users, especially when reporting is done, such as COAC or balance sheet processing. Reporting requires at least 4GB of memory, as most reports are processed in memory. This significantly increases the processing speed. It is also strongly recommended for these users to connect via a 1GBit connection to the server.

 

3. REQUIREMENTS OPERATING SYSTEM

3.1. Supported operating systems 

 

BMD NTCS clean installation:

Server:
•    Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 incl. all Security Updates (x64)
•    Windows Server 2012 incl. all Security Updates (x64)
•    Windows Server 2012 R2 incl. all Security Updates (x64)
•    Windows Server 2016 incl. all Security Updates (x64)

 

WARNING!

 

The setup of the BMDNTCS installs SQL 2016 automatically if the system requirements are met (starting with Windows Server 2012).

 

If the prerequisites are not met, SQL 2014 is installed. SQL 2017 is also supported. In this case, however, a manual installation of SQL is required. The database compatibility level of the BMD database must then be set to SQL 2014.


BMD recommends the use of SQL Server.

 

For BMD 5.5 it is absolutely necessary to use “Netspeed”.

 

BMDNTCS requires the .net framework in version 3.5 – This must be installed depending on the operating system or enabled in the Windows features.
Client:

WARNING!

•    Windows 7 SP1 incl. all Security Updates*
•    Windows 8.1 incl. all Security Updates
•    Windows 10 incl. all Security Updates

* BMD recommends using Windows 8.1 Pro or 8.1 Enterprise or Windows 10 Pro or Windows 10 Enterprise


The BMDNTCS Setup installs SQL 2016 automatically when the system requirements are met (starting with Windows 8.1).


If the prerequisites are not met, SQL 2014 is installed. 

Windows XP and older versions are no longer supported, as these operating systems are no longer maintained or supported by Microsoft. Therefore, certain components required by the BMD software no longer run on these operating systems, for example, the report generator. BMD also strongly recommends to switch to a newer operating system because Microsoft will not be servicing XP from April 2014 onwards.

4. ABOUT UPDATES, PATCHES, NEW FEATURES

 

The operating system must be in a flawless, error-free state. To achieve this, install the latest service packs and patches from the operating system vendors. Errors due to insufficient or faulty patches or service packs must be resolved with the operating system manufacturer.

 

The maintenance of the operating system and the system components is the responsibility of the customer. If errors within the BMD software are found, these must be resolved with BMD. Note that new operating systems cannot be fully tested from their first moment of availability as well as before in beta state. When using brand new operating system, verify with BMD beforehand.
 

5. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS STAND-ALONE WORKSTATIONS

 

Both the database and the program operate on the same workstation.

 

5.1. Minimum Requirements

NTCS
 

>= Intel Core i3 v1
4 GB RAM

The existing resources must not fall below windows requirements.
 40 GB free hard drive space

 


The storage space requirements depend on the BMD product used and by the amount of user data.
However, at least 40 GB of free space is required. 
 

 

5.2. Recommended System

 

NTCS
 

>= Intel Core i3 v2
>= 4 GB RAM

The existing resources must not fall below windows requirements.
 40 GB free hard drive space

 


The storage space requirements depend on the BMD product used and by the amount of user data.
However, at least 40 GB of free space is required. 
 

 

NTCS Power Users, especially when reporting is done, such as COAC or balance sheet processing. Reporting requires at least 4GB of memory, as most reports are processed in memory. This significantly increases the processing speed.

 

6. NETWORK REQUIREMENTS

 

If the BMD software is used over a network, only the network protocol TCP/IP must be set up. Other protocols are not recommended or supported. Errors caused by network protocols must be resolved with the vendor of this protocol (usually the operating system manufacturer).

The cabling of the network and other network components must be in an error-free state to guarantee full functionality of BMD software. Errors due to cabling or network components have to be resolved with the manufacturer of the product.

NTCS requires a stable connection between the database server and the client. Connection bandwidth must be 100Mbit or higher. A 1Gbit connection between the clients and the server is recommended.

 

The BMD software cannot be operated over a WAN or VPN route. In this case, a Remote Desktop connection and a Remote Desktop server is required. Furthermore, the operation via W-LAN is not recommended, because BMD software does not control reconnection in the event of a network interruption.

 

7. PRINTER REQUIREMENTS

 

Generally, all printers working under Windows should also work with BMD NTCS. Windows print function is accessed through Windows spooler. 

 

Printers with an integrated print processor should be used. Printers requiring a so-called "host based Driver" is not recommended. In this case the complete processing of the printout is done by the workstation. Under Terminal Server, such printers cannot be used at all.

 

8. GENERAL INFORMATION

 

If BMD software runs on a Remote Desktop server, the color depth must be set to at least 16 bits. Otherwise, the UX icons from the Remote Desktop server are scaled down to fewer colors resulting in suboptimal image quality.
Printers cannot be used without a dedicated print processor on a Remote Desktop server.

 

BMD offers an additional number of documents to assist with installation. These can be found on the BMD installation medium or on the BMD website. Please refer to these documents as well as they provide additional recommendations and tips.
 

Remarks on Memory in General:
In order to work efficiently with BMD software, it is imperative that enough free memory is available. In some cases, workstations or servers would have enough memory, but it is reserved or in use by third-party applications. Therefore, system requirements always dependent on the software configuration, the expected load and the installed third-party applications.

 

9. DATABASE/OPERATING SYSTEM-VERSIONS SUPPORTED BY BMD NTCS

 

9.1. NTCS Multi-user version

 

WARNING!
Setup of the BMDNTCS installs SQL 2016 automatically if the system requirements are met. If the prerequisites are not met, SQL 2014 is installed.

BMDNTCS requires the .net framework in version 3.5 – This must be installed depending on the operating system or activated in the Windows features.


Database/operating system-versions supported by BMD NTCS
Both 32 (if available) and 64 bit versions of the corresponding operating systems and databases are supported by BMD. It is recommended to use the 64 bit version.

If SQL Server is installed manually, ensure to install "case insensitive" mode. In addition, "Mixed Mode" must also be activated for the registration.
 

9.1.1. NTCS/BMD Single-user version

 

WARNING!
BMDNTCS Setup installs SQL 2016 automatically when the system requirements are met (starting with Windows 8.1).

If prerequisites are not met, SQL 2014 is installed. SQL 2017 is also supported. In this case, however, a manual installation of SQL is required. The database compatibility level of the BMD database must then be set to SQL 2014.

 

Windows XP and older versions are no longer supported, as it is no longer maintained or supported by Microsoft.
Therefore, certain components required by BMD software no longer run on XP, e.g. the report. BMD strongly recommends using a newer operating system. As of April 2014 Microsoft no longer services Windows XP.
