Latest Robot Studio Sys. Req.

Hello, could some one please tell me what the system requirements are for the latest robot studio are? Better yet, could someone tell me where to find the installation and user's guides or attach them in a post? I am trying to convince my company to purchase it. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

I'm also arguing with my IT dept to be allowed to update my workstation to XP Pro. form Win2000. Will the latest version work correctly in Win2000? Are there advantages to running on an XP platform?

Thank you kindly for your time..

Cheers

R.K.

    Are you talking about the 5.x version of Robot Studio, which I think is for the IRC5 only I believe, or the 3.x version.

    Note: I'm not an RS guy, but I can probably find the info you're looking for. Response to your posting might otherwise be slow this time of year.

  • Thank you kindly for all your replies/info. I'll take it then that it should work equally well on XP as on Windows 2000, hence there will be no need for me to update.

    Cheers!
