Robo-FTP is supported on x86 and x64 versions of Windows Server 2008 R2, 2012 (R1 and R2), 2016, and 2019 (including Core edition), as well as Windows desktop editions 7, 8, 8.1, 10, and 11.
Robo-FTP is available in 32 and 64 bit versions and requires version 4.6 of the Microsoft .NET Framework, the Visual Studio 2019 C++ Runtime, and 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: 512Mb plus 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.
If you are upgrading from any previous version of Robo-FTP, please read the migration guide for upgrade instructions and details on changes that may affect you.
