In order to ensure satisfactory performance from your Noah System, HIMSA recommends that your PC and network server (if applicable) should meet or exceed the following requirements.
IMPORTANT: The following requirements are for the Noah System software only. Your Noah fitting and measurement modules will most likely have higher requirements in order to run on your PC.
NOTE: HIMSA supports and recommends that the latest Windows Updates and Windows Service Packs should be applied.
NOTE: If you are a larger chain or shops or have special database storage needs (e.g. support for MS SQL server) please refer to our Noah Enterprise Support site.
|System RAM||2 GB (4 GB recommended)|
|Free hard drive space||1 GB of free space for Noah (5 GB recommended),|
1 GB of free space for EACH installed module,
4 GB of free space for the patient database

For networked installations, you may also use a Windows Server OS for the Noah Server installation. Please see the HIMSA Platform Strategy document (under Related Links) for complete details.
IMPORTANT:HIMSA does not test modules on Enterprise versions of Windows as part of the certification process so we cannot guarantee that your modules will run on these systems.

Q: Can Noah be installed on a Apple computer with Windows OS installed?
A: HIMSA does not test Noah on Apple computers. However, as long as your computer meets the minimum specifications, above Noah should operate correctly.
Q: Why doesn’t HIMSA support Windows 7?
A: As a rule, HIMSA stops supporting a Windows operating system for Noah when Microsoft officially ends support and stops supplying security patches for the OS version. Microsoft has ended Windows 7 support on January 14, 2020, so HIMSA support for Windows 7 has also ended at this time as well. For more information on HIMSA support for Windows, refer to the HIMSA platform strategy document.
