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 direct interface to external data, by letting you directly download files or images from the Internet. It will also let you take advantage of custom functionality, including scripting languages such as JavaScript and VBScript.
