WinCloud Studio uses pre-installed applications and
sub-systems within the Microsoft® Windows operating systems.
Below is a list of products required to be installed on
the operating system to utilize the full capabilities of the WinCloud
Studio development tool.
Microsoft® Windows operating system 7, 8 and Windows 10 and above.
WinCloud Studio will work on both the desktop and
server operating systems 2003 and greater.
Microsoft® Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) 3.5 or greater.
Microsoft provides ODBC to connect to multiple databases
that utilize the operating system environment. WinCloud Studio
uses the ODBC drivers to connect to databases.
There are two ways through ODBC to connect to a database. They
are directly, and setting up a DSN, or Data Source Name. WinCloud
Studio can connect directly to Access, SQL
Server, Azure, and SQLite and connects to other databases, such as MySQL and Oracle
through the DSN using ODBC. Connecting through a DSN requires setting up
through the control panel.
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 or greater.
If you will be using .NET to extend the functionality of WinCloud Studio, you will need .NET framework installed on your
workstation. WinCloud Studio can use compiled applications from .NET or
traditional languages to script in additional functionality. NOTE: It is not required to have .NET for WinCloud Studio applications. Only if
you will be extending functionality you can use .NET as an extension.
Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 or greater.
If you want to display files from the internet, using WinCloud
Studio, you will need Internet Explorer 11 or
greater. WinCloud Studio uses a browser control that
displays web content within the application. This gives you flexibility with WinCloud Studio, and provides a
