CPU XMS software is CPU intensive. We recommend the fastest CPU your budget allows. A multi-core CPU may be useful for multi-tasking while XMS is running. However, XMS software does not use more than a single core at this time, so a faster dual core may provide better performance than a slower quad core CPU.
Hard Disk Free Space 300 MB 300 MB or greater
Graphics Card For all display features to be enabled, OpenGL 1.5 must be supported. The use of a dedicated graphics card is strongly recommended. Integrated graphics cards are often problematic.
Minimum Resolution 1024x768 1024x768 or greater
  1. Windows Vista is supported in GMS 7.0, SMS 10.1, WMS 8.1 and greater versions only.
  2. Windows 7 is supported in GMS 7.0, SMS 10.0, WMS 8.1 and greater versions only.


  • You may have display problems when running over remote desktop. This can usually be fixed by restarting the software after beginning/ending a remote desktop session. Remote Desktop cannot be used with single-user/standalone locks, only with network locks.
  • Always download and install the latest drivers from your graphics card vendor. Graphics card problems are often due to using the wrong or outdated drivers. See Graphics Card Troubleshooting for instructions on how to download and install graphics card drivers. If you continue to experience problems after updating your graphics card drivers, contact support.
