System Requirements

This section provides a list of supported operating systems and describes minimum and recommended system requirements for installing and running Fenix+ 3 Classic.

Supported operating systems

Only 64-bit operating systems are supported.

Fenix+ 3 Classic requires Microsoft .Net Framework 4.8. You cannot run Fenix+ 3 Classic on operating systems that do not comly with this requirement.

The .Net Framework 4.8 is compatible with the following Windows versions:

• Windows 10 (version 1607 and later)

• Windows 8.1

• Windows 7 SP2

You can find a full list of Windows versions compatible with the .Net Framework 4.8 on the page at the following address: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/get-started/system-requirements.

The .Net Framework 4.8 is included in the program installation package (for more information, refer to Installation Package).

Basic Requirements

  • Operating system: Windows 7 SP2 (x64)
  • Processor: Intel Core i3 dual-core processor or similar
  • RAM: 2 GB
  • Disk space: 200 Mb
  • Display resolution: 1024x768

Recommended Requirements

  • Operating system: Windows 10 (x64)
  • Processor: Intel Core i7 six-core processor or similar
  • RAM: 16 GB or higher
  • Disk space: 2000 GB or more
  • Display resolution: 1920x1080 and higher
  • Display card: NVIDIA / AMD

Additional Requirements

  • To view reports on simulation results, MS Word 2007 and later is required

MS Word is not required to create reports on simulation results though.

The provided system requirements are very approximate. System resources that Fenix+ 3 Classic uses to perform calculations depend on the size of the project. For example, you can perform simulations for a small project within a reasonable time on a system that meets the minimum requirements. However, you may not perform simulations for a larger project on the same system within a reasonable time. Basically, the more powerful computer you have, the more performance you get. For example, with a more efficient processor you can perform simulations more quickly. With more RAM you can perform simulations for larger projects. With a larger hard drive you can store more projects and simulation results.

Installation Package

Fenix+ 3 Classic is distributed as a full installation package for 64-bit operating systems.

The installation package contains the following components:

  • Fenix+ 3 Classic
  • FDS (version 6.7.5)
  • Smokeview program (version 6.7.15)
