• 128MB of additional RAM beyond the requirements of your operating system (minimum) is recommended.

• Super VGA (800x600) or higher resolution monitor.

• Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.01 with Service Pack 3 or later, Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 with Service Pack 2 or later, or Microsoft Internet Explorer with Service Pack 1 or later. For the best experience, use Internet Explorer 6.0.

• Project Server 2003 and Project Professional 2003 required for enterprise project and resource management capabilities. Project Server 2003 has a separate set of system requirements.
