If you are running a 32 bit machine you may either choose to use the 32 bit version of the software or upgrade to a 64 bit computer which will accept the update.
The main functional difference between the two versions is the presence of live price and availability data in the tool in V1.1. Memory: 2 GB RAM and 3 GB for Vista, Hard Drive: 3 GB free for data + 200 MB for the application. DesignSpark Electrical is not configured to run on Linux or Mac based systems.
