Eclipse SE System Requirements

The following table lists basic requirements for the Ipro® Eclipse SE™ file server(s), Ipro Database system, application server, optional modules (which include the Eclipse SE Print Manager, Summation Migration, Scanning, and/or Streaming module), and computers on whichEclipse SE Administration will be used. Some differences are noted for the SE Streaming module. When appropriate, the file server and database may reside on the same system.

Faster processors and larger amounts of physical memory (RAM) are always a benefit. Network connectivity, network traffic, database size, storage speed, and other factors may affect performance evaluations.





Quad Core Intel Xeon Processors, 2.4 GHz or higher


  • Basic: 4 GB or higher

  • If the SE Streaming module is used: 8 GB or higher


  • Basic:

    • Disk space is determined based on the amount of data stored.

    • Single-user systems may use local disk storage.

    • Systems on which Eclipse SE Administration is installed and on which native ingestion will be run have space requirements as explained below, in the section called Eclipse SE Administration - Native Ingestion Requirements.

    • Network systems can store data on Direct Storage, NAS, or SAN.

  • If the SE Streaming module is used we recommend RAID1 storage for performance and readability.


  • Basic: 100 MB Ethernet connection or higher

  • If the SE Streaming module is used: Gigabit Ethernet connection or higher

Operating system/ software*

  • Any of the following Microsoft® Windows® operating systems:

    • Windows 7, 8, 8.1, or 10
    • Server 2008 R2

    • Server 2012 or Server 2012 R2

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and 4.5

  • If the SE Streaming module is used:

    • The operating system must be 64-bit (non-Streaming systems may be 32-bit or 64-bit).

*Note the following additional details and requirements:

Eclipse SE Administration - Native Ingestion Requirements

The local (C:\) drive of the computer on which native ingestion will be run must have free disk space approximately equal to the size of each set of documents to be ingested. For example, if a set of documents to be ingested totals 30 GB, then the computer must have at least 30 GB of free space. This space is used for the storage of temporary files created during the ingestion process.

Eclipse SE End-User Computer Requirements

The following requirements apply to end users’ computers. End users will typically be using Eclipse SE Desktop for document reviews. Other components may also be installed, depending on each user’s responsibilities.





Intel Pentium 4/AMD Athlon XP or higher


2 GB or higher

Operating system/ software*

  • Any of the following Microsoft Windows operating systems:

    • Windows 7, 8, 8.1, or 10

    • Server 2008 R2

    • Server 2012 or Server 2012 R2

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and 4.5

*Note the following additional details and requirements:

Additional Hardware/Software Information

Authorization Requirement for Optional Modules

If you will be using the Eclipse SE Scanning, Summation Migration, and/or Streaming module, the Ipro Authorization Server is required.

Font Requirements for CJK Documents

For proper display and searching of CJK (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean) documents, the Arial Unicode MS font must be installed. By default, this font is installed with Microsoft Office and other Microsoft products. If you need (but do not have) the Arial Unicode MS font, obtain it from the Typography section of

Wide Area Networks - TCP/IP

Ipro Eclipse SE concurrent-user products are intended to be run in a Local Area Network (LAN) environment. Running Ipro Eclipse SE directly over a Wide Area Network (WAN) or via TCP/IP is supported. Please speak with your internal IT departments for optimal environments and configurations for this type of setup.

Citrix MetaFrame or Microsoft Terminal Services Server

Citrix/Terminal server can be placed on the same network as the Ipro Eclipse SE application and the case data. The Citrix/Terminal server(s) can be accessed over the WAN or Internet using the appropriate Citrix/Terminal client software.

Antivirus Software

As with virtually all desktop software applications, the performance of your Ipro Eclipse SE application can be affected by the most restrictive antivirus program configuration settings (specifically “scan all files” operations). Antivirus products running on the desktop, if set to the most restrictive configuration, will cause the most noticeable effect on system performance for the end-user. Antivirus products are aware that their products can cause undesirable performance under some conditions, so please be sure to visit their support sites for the most up-to-date information.

Minimum Screen Resolution

Set screen resolution to at least 1280 x 1024.


Ipro Eclipse SE can be used in a virtual environment – licensing, authorization, and product functionality are the same whether Eclipse SE is installed in a physical or virtual environment.

If you have specific questions on using Eclipse SE in a virtual environment, please contact Ipro Support,

Windows Data Execution Prevention (DEP) Requirements

For proper Eclipse SE operation, ensure that the Windows DEP security feature is set as follows. This is a typical set of steps; exact steps vary by operating system.

  1. In the Windows Start menu, right-click Computer and click Properties.

  2. Click the Advanced tab.

  3. Click the Settings button in the Performance area as shown in this figure.

  4. Click the Data Execution Prevention tab.

  5. Select the Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services only option as shown in the following figure:
  6. Click OK as required to close all dialog and message boxes.
  7. Restart your computer.

Notes on .NET Requirements

As listed previously, Eclipse SE requires different versions of the .NET Framework. The following information is provided to help end users and administrators ensure that their systems are properly configured for Eclipse SE.

Note: If you log in to Eclipse SE on a computer lacking the needed .NET versions, a message may inform you of the problem.

.NET 4.5

For all operating systems, if .NET 4.5 is missing/not enabled, it will be installed/enabled during Eclipse SE installation. Installing .NET 4.5 requires that your computer be restarted. Follow onscreen instructions to restart the computer when the initial prompt displays, or complete your Eclipse SE installation and then restart the computer.

.NET 3.5 SP1

This requirement is addressed as follows:

  • For Windows 7 or Server 2008 R2, if .NET 3.5 SP1 is missing/not enabled, it will be installed/enabled during Eclipse SE installation.
  • For Windows 8, 8.1, 10, or Server 2012/2012 R2, if .NET 3.5 SP1 is missing/not enabled, an administrator or user must install and/or enable it.

Check for .NET 3.5 SP1

Check current .NET versions using tools available for the operating system in use. Following is a typical set of steps; exact steps vary by operating system.

  1. Open the Control Panel and click Uninstall or change a program under Programs.
  2. Click Turn Windows features on or off.
  3. Search in the Features list for .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 or 3.5.1. The following example shows .NET 3.5.1 on Windows Server 2008 R2 system.

  4. Take one of the following actions:

    1. If the .NET feature is selected, it is installed/enabled on your computer; click Cancel.
    2. If the .NET feature appears but is not enabled, select all options corresponding to it and then click OK or follow the prompts of the Features wizard (depending on operating system).
  5. If the needed .NET version is not listed in the Features list:

    1. Download/install .NET 3.5 SP1 from the Microsoft website:
    2. Follow instructions provided on the site.

Scanning Module Requirements

For Windows Server 2008 R2, 2012, or 2012 R2 systems on which the Eclipse SE Scanning module will be used, ensure the Desktop Experience is enabled.
