Notes:

• Microsoft .NET Framework: If the target computer does not have Microsoft .NET Framework v4.6.1 installed, the PCS installation automatically installs it for you. This feature requires an active Internet connection to complete the installation of .NET Framework v4.6.1.

• Microsoft SQL Server: The preferred version of SQL Server for the PCS database is a 64-bit version of Microsoft SQL Server 2014 SP1. Only limited testing has been completed for SQL Server 2008R2 and PCS 1.12 and the use of replication is not support for this SQL/PCS combination. Hosting the PCS database on a shared SQL server may result in reduced performance.
