SimPlugins PanelBuilder memory requirments

Recommended Posts

Hi All.

 

Im looking at using PanelBuilder for a single 15" monitor to display only a set of 172 guages. This monitor is build into a removable desktop based stand which houses a few of the Saitek Pro Flight units. I then have my main PC running FSX with three 24" monitors which sit behind this desktop unit. This completes cockpit.

 

However, to power the single 15" monitor and run PanelBuilder im looking at the following tiny PC which runs Windows 8: http://www.ecs.com.tw/LIVA/spec.html

 

I will only have Windows8 and PanelBuilder (networked) on this little machine, nothing else.

 

Only thing is, its only got 2gb of DDR3. I think the requirments for PanelBuilder are 4gb? (correct me if I am wrong).

 

My question: Will panelbuilder install OK with 2GB and I can take my chances (with a set of 172 panels) if it runs into trouble regarding memory or will the installer detect that I have only 2gb and not let the installation continue at all? (I cant test this out because I am waiting for this answer before I commit to buying the little PC).

 

Any help on this really appriciated.

 

Thanks.

The installer does not check the available memory. Running a small panel on 2GB might work. We have many customers running a 4 screen system on a single computer.

 

Unfortunately I cannot make any statements regarding of the performance of Panel Builder on the suggested architecture. If any other users of Panel Builder have experience with system like this, please respond tho this post.
