MAP Toolkit 7.0 System Requirements

With the availability of the MAP Toolkit 7.0, I would like to cover the new system requirement for installing and running the MAP Toolkit 7.0.

Supported operating systems:

Thumbs up Windows Vista with Service Pack 2
Thumbs up Windows Server 2008 with Service Pack 2
Thumbs up Windows 7 with Service Pack 1
Thumbs up Windows Server 2008 R2 with Service Pack 1

NOTE: The MAP Toolkit cannot be installed on Starter, Home Basic, Home Premium, and Home Starter editions.

Supported SQL Server versions as storage:

The MAP Toolkit 7.0 can use SQL Server 2008 or later for storing its inventory and assessment results.  By default, the MAP Toolkit 7.0 will install SQL Server 2012 Express LocalDB. If you want to use a different version or edition of SQL Server, just install a named instance called “MAPS” before you install MAP. See MAP Toolkit 7.0 Setup has been improved! for more information on how SQL Server 2012 Express LocalDB has improved the MAP Setup..

Additional dependencies:
