Version 5 Jet and Version 5 SQL Minimum Software and Hardware
 Version 5 Jet and Version 5 SQL
Minimum Software and Hardware Requirements
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
Please note that these minimum requirements are designed to give adequate
performance when running a simple database on the local hard drive of a standalone computer. A simple database is defined not only by the number of songs
(less than 10,000), but also the number and complexity of the rules. When using
larger databases and when operating in a network/multi- user environment, we
strongly recommend that you exceed the minimum recommendations and use
the best hardware you can get.
CLIENT
MusicMaster is supported on the following Microsoft Windows operating systems:
Windows 7 (Using Windows XP Service Pack 2 Compatibility)
Windows Vista
Windows XP (Sevice Pack 2 or later)
Windows 2000 Professional (Service Pack 4 or later)
Note: MusicMaster is no longer supported on earlier Windows operating systems
MusicMaster also requires the following Microsoft Windows system components:
Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or later
Microsoft Script Control 1.0 or later
Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) v2.6 or later
Microsoft Jet 4.0 SP6 or later
Page 1 TR02282012
It is strongly recommended that your operating system be up-to-date with the
latest available service packs and security updates. Please see Microsoft
Windows Update for more information at http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com.
You can also find several of these updates in the System folder of the
MusicMaster CD-ROM and website. If you receive Error 429 or 430 when
launching MusicMaster, you probably need to update one or more of these
components.
After you've installed MusicMaster, you will find the MusicMaster System
Information Utility on the Start Menu. This utility can be used to check the
installed version of these components.
You should be using a computer system that will provide very good performance
for the operating system that you are using.
With Windows 2000, XP, 7 or Vista we recommend at least a Pentium 4, 2.8Ghz
or equivalent with a minimum of 1GB of RAM.
After installing any required prerequisites, MusicMaster for Windows will need a
minimum of 100Mb of hard disk space for program installation and a single
moderate-sized database.
Your computer must also have one free USB port where you can connect the
MusicMaster Security Key. This is required to operate the software.

Software Prerequisites:
MusicMaster for Windows also requires the following Microsoft Windows system
components:
• Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or later. We recommend that you install the
newest version available. Minimal installation is acceptable and Internet
Explorer does NOT need to be the default browser on your system. This is
available from: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/download/default.htm
• Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) v2.6 or later. This is also known
as MDAC. These updates are available from
http://www.microsoft.com/data. Special notes about how to install these
updates can be found in the System folder on the MusicMaster or
Windows CD-ROM. Newer operating systems will update these
components through Windows update.
• Microsoft Jet 4.0 SP6 or later. This is also known as the Access database
driver. These updates are available from: http://www.microsoft.com/data. It
is very important that you have the latest Jet driver installed on your
computer. Special notes about how to install these updates can be found
in the System folder on the MusicMaster or Windows CD-ROM. Newer
operating systems will update these components through Windows
update.
• Microsoft XML Parser 3.0 or later. This is available from
http://www.microsoft.com/xml. This will automatically be installed with the
latest version of Internet Explorer.
• Microsoft Script Control 1.0 or later. This is available from:
http://www.microsoft.com/scripting. This is included with new versions of
Microsoft Windows and will automatically be installed with the latest
version of Internet Explorer. It is strongly recommended that your
operating system be up-to-date with the latest available service packs and
security updates.

Please see Microsoft Windows Update for more information at
http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com. You can also find several of these
updates in the System folder of the MusicMaster for Windows CD-ROM.
After you've installed MusicMaster for Windows, you will find the MusicMaster
System Information Utility on the Start Menu. This utility can be used to check the
installed version of these components.

V5 SQL
Any workstation running MusicMaster with a SQL database will need to have the
appropriate SQL Native Client installed. This is installed on the machine
automatically if a copy of SQL Server (including Express) is installed there too.
However, if the SQL Server is located elsewhere, the workstations will need this
to be installed.
V5 SQL supports Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and 2005 Standard Edition.
Please refer to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb545450.aspx for
minimum hardware and software requirements.
SERVER
If you will be operating MusicMaster across a local area network, it is
recommended that you store your database on an actual server computer. This
computer should be one that is not restarted on a regular basis, and that isn’t
used for too many other purposes. For bigger databases and therefore intense
MusicMaster network traffic a dedicated server is recommended. The
MusicMaster software does not need to be installed on the server, only the
database files should reside there.
V5 Jet and V5 SQL support Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2.
It is strongly recommended that your operating system be up-to-date with the
latest available service packs and security updates. Please see Microsoft
Windows Update for more information at http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com.
V5 SQL supports Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and 2005 Standard Edition.
Page 5 TR02282012
Please refer to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb545450.aspx for
minimum hardware and software requirements.
MusicMaster can be quite data intensive, therefore you should always have a
high-speed network connection between your MusicMaster workstation and the
server where the database is located. We recommend the use of a 100Mb
connection or faster between each MusicMaster workstation and the server
where the databases are stored. 1000Mb connections or faster should be
strongly considered. We do not recommend the use of 10Mb Ethernet
connection, VPN or any wireless network. One exception to this would include
the use of remote control software such as Citrix, pcAnywhere, VNC, GoToMyPC
or similar.
General Hardware Recommendations:
Using the minimum recommended hardware, MusicMaster should perform well
on a stand-alone computer using a small to moderate-sized database. Users that
want to operate multiple databases, open more than one database at a time, use
MusicMaster on a network or with an Enterprise master database should
consider using more optimal hardware.
For best performance, we recommend Windows 7 or Windows XP Professional.
Minimum requirements: Pentium 4, 3.0Ghz or any Core Duo processor with min.
1Gb of RAM.
The program will also benefit greatly if the database is stored on a fast hard
drive. Recommended is 7200rpm or greater. Serial ATA (SATA) drives give
good performance, Solid State Drives (SSD) give optimum performance.
For the MusicMaster Workstations we recommend a computer with a minimum
resolution of 1024x768. This is just a minimum though. You can open many
optional floating and docking panels in MusicMaster, so you will benefit from
having screen resolutions of 1280x1024 or greater.

Additional Hardware Considerations:
Keep in mind that the speed of the software through the network will be impacted
by several things, including the connection between your workstation and the
server where the data is located, other traffic on the server as well as complexity
of the database. Databases run off the network will almost always be slower than
if that same database was run on the local drive.
As an option, we also offer a Network Security Key. This can be used to license
many computers on the same local area network using only a single Security Key
that is located on one network computer. When this option is used, the other
MusicMaster workstations do not need a free USB port for this device. The
Security Key will only be physically connected to a single computer and only that
computer needs a USB port to host it. When using a Network Security Key, the
host computer must also run a special license manager utility. This computer
does not need to have a copy of MusicMaster installed on it. The purpose of this
host computer is simply to manage the software license for all of the MusicMaster
computers on your network.
Program and license updates can be received through the Internet. We
recommend that you have Internet access on the computers where you install
and operate MusicMaster for Windows. There are special settings available that
you can use if you are operating behind a firewall or proxy server that blocks
direct access to the Internet. Please note that MusicMaster currently only
requires Internet access when it is checking for new program updates and to
upgrade your Security Key license when you install a new major version of
MusicMaster.
