CadTracker technical data
and system requirements

Check that the computers in your organisation meet the software and hardware
requirements for CadTracker's client and server installations.

Overview

CadTracker is a client–server application. The server uses a Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Express Edition database and the client is the application which communicates with the server's database. Typically, an organisation will install one instance of SQL Server, with one database. However, it is possible to create multiple databases for different projects. Each team member who wishes to use CadTracker must install the client application on his or her workstation. For a sole operator, the database and client application may be installed on the same PC.
