What are the hardware/software requirements?

Windows : The Vensim family of software runs on Windows 8/8.1/10 (it will not work on Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 since these are no longer supported by Microsoft). Vensim is available in both 32 and 64 bit versions.

Apple Mac : The Macintosh version requires OSX version 10.10 or higher. Vensim 8 and higher will run on 64 bit versions of MacOS (including Catalina). The Windows Version will run on the Macintosh using emulators like VMware or Crossover, or with a Windows virtual/alternate boot installation.

Vensim requires about 60 megabytes of disk space for a full installation and will run with any reasonable amount of memory.  For very large models more memory and disk space will be required as a single run can easily take 100 megabytes of disk space.  Generally it is a good idea to have at least as much memory as the size of the largest .vdfx file you are creating.
