HRPro System Requirements

Review the table below to determine the system requirements needed to run HRPro

* SQL Server on Azure Virtual Machines is supported but Azure SQL Databases is not supported as it is lack of cross database processing

Recommendation of an all-in-one (application server + database server + web server) server:

  • CPU of i3/5/7 or Xeon, 16GB RAM, 200GB Hard Disk space, preferably with 2 hard disks in RAID-1 (disk mirroring) setting.

  • Windows Server License Required: Windows Server of latest or 2nd latest version (64-bit)

  • Database Server License Required: No (just the free Microsoft SQL Server Express or Standard Edition of latest or 2nd latest version)

Recommendation for 3 separate servers if budget allows for best performance as shown in HRPro Network Diagram

1. Database Server

Processor: 2GHz

Memory: 8GB

Hard Disk space: 100GB - 200GB

2. Application Server (for Web Client)

Processor: 2GHz

Memory: 8GB

Hard Disk space: min. 100GB

3. Employee Portal Application Server

Processor: 2GHz

Memory: 8GB

Hard Disk space: min. 100GB

To use Employee Portal, you need:

  • SQL Server with HRPro database installed on the network and is accessible by Employee Portal Server

  • Operating system and software: A 32-bit/64-bit version of Microsoft® Windows® Server™ 2012 Standard or Enterprise Edition with Service Pack 2 or later.

  • Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) 6.0 or later

  • Browser Supported: the two latest released versions of Chrome, Edge, Firefox and Safari

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2 or above (should be supplied by Windows Server 2019 or above)


  • For Email Integration: To send emails, you need an SMTP server. If you have the ability to send Internet emails, you probably already have one of these somewhere.

  • Server Hardware: Most modern Intel servers will be fine. We recommend 2 GB of memory for optimal performance. Do not run Employee Portal on a server which is also running large enterprise applications such as Microsoft Exchange or Microsoft Sharepoint.

  • Running IIS on the domain controller is not recommended.

  • If Employee Portal is opened to the Internet, proper network infrastructure and security control are required.
