System requirements

As a general requirement, 1.2 GB of disk space is required for installation. Furthermore, 4 GB of RAM is recommended for reasonable performance.

View our roadmap for platform support.

The software is supported on the following platforms:

Windows 32- and 64-bit

​Software

32-bit

64-bit

Thermo-Calc

 Windows 7 SP1

Windows 7 SP1/8/10

Diffusion Module (DICTRA)

Windows 7 SP1

Windows 7 SP1/8/10

Precipitation Module (TC-PRISMA)

Windows 7 SP1

Roadmap for platform support

Support for installing and running the Thermo-Calc software package on Windows XP has been dropped as of the Thermo-Calc 4.1 version release.

Support for installing and running the Thermo-Calc software package on all 32-bit platforms will be phased out. Users with a 32-bit platform installation are therefore advised to migrate to a 64-bit platform in the near future.
