Robo-FTP is 32 bit software and requires version 4.0 of the Microsoft .NET Framework, the x86 Visual Studio 2013 C++ Runtime, and the platform specific (x64 or x86 depending on your OS) version of SQL Compact Edition 4.0 SP1. The full installer includes all of these dependencies.
The Robo-FTP installer does not itself require rebooting but the dependencies installed on the initial install may.
RAM: 50 MB per instance of Robo-FTP.exe (Each actively running Robo-FTP script uses one instance of Robo-FTP.exe).
CPU: We recommend having 1 available CPU core for every 10 to 20 actively running instances of Robo-FTP.exe, depending on the nature of the processes being automated. For example, encryption and decryption may be more processor-intensive than other activities such as renaming files.
DISK: We recommend a minimum of 2 GB of hard drive space to install the software and have room to maintain a typical number of logs. Be sure to provision sufficient additional hard drive space for the files you wish to manage using the software.
HINT: Download this installer if you need to connect to other servers and upload / download files. If you want to host a server that allows others to connect to you to upload / download files, you should download Robo-FTP Server (see below).
