You need to bring your own laptop to this course.

IMPORTANT: Make sure that your laptop meets the following requirements/ specifications:

VMWare requirements for course

  • Windows server , 2008R2 or newer
  • SQL Server 2012 or newer
  • 8GB of RAM (8 GB on physical machine – at least 4GB assigned to VM)
  • 10GB free disk space.

  1. Windows Server 2008 R2 or later
    1. .NET 4.5 needs to be installed
  2. Internet Information Server (IIS) 7 or higher
    1. IIS Windows login service needs to be started
    2. ASP.NET v4.0.30319 needs to be set to allowed on top level of default site under the “ISAPI and CGI Restrictions”
