In order to ensure satisfactory performance from your Noah System, HIMSA recommends that your PC and network server (if applicable) should meet or exceed the following requirements.

IMPORTANT: The following requirements are for the Noah System software only. Your Noah fitting and measurement modules will most likely have higher requirements in order to run on your PC.

If you plan on using Noah System on Windows 11, we suggest that you first make sure that the Noah modules you use most are certified for Windows 11, or contact the module manufacturers directly for more information.

NOTE: HIMSA supports and recommends that the latest Windows Updates and Windows Service Packs should be applied.

NOTE: If you are a larger chain or shops or have special database storage needs (e.g. support for MS SQL server) please refer to our Noah Enterprise Support site.

System RAM2 GB (4 GB recommended)
Free hard drive space1 GB of free space for Noah (5 GB recommended),
3 GB of free space for EACH installed module,

Operating SystemWindows 11 or 10 – does not support the S variation, ARM based versions (ex. Surface Pro X), or mobile versions

For networked installations, you may also use a Windows Server OS for the Noah Server installation. Minimum system requirements for Server operating systems are the same as published here. For supported server operating systems, please see the HIMSA Platform Strategy document under Related Links.

IMPORTANT:HIMSA does not test modules on Enterprise versions of Windows as part of the certification process so we cannot guarantee that your modules will run on these systems.

Q: Can Noah be installed on a Apple computer with Windows OS installed?

A: HIMSA does not test or support Noah on Apple computers.
Important: There have been reports from the field that our products will not run on newer Macs with Apple-made processors using PC emulating software such as Parallels.

Q: Why doesn’t HIMSA support Windows 7?

A: As a rule, HIMSA stops supporting a Windows operating system for Noah when Microsoft officially ends support and stops supplying security patches for the OS version.  Microsoft has ended Windows 7 support on January 14, 2020, so HIMSA support for Windows 7 has also ended at this time as well. For more information on HIMSA support for Windows, refer to the HIMSA platform strategy document.
