Breakthru Software
Translation
"Breaking down barriers to your innovation."

Prerequisites

Hardware

  • Microsoft Windows-based computer - There are no special hardware requirements for this program. It has been tested on Laptop and Desktop computers.
  • System Architecture - This product runs in 64bit mode on x64 systems and 32bit mode on x86(32bit) systems. The same installer covers both system types.
  • Graphics card or onboard graphics - A good quality graphics card is recommended (although not required) for best quality and performance sound.

Software

The following are the required software levels to run the program. The Microsoft .Net Framework are NOT installed automatically by Windows Update and may not have been pre-installed by your computer manufacturer. So you may need to download and install them yourself.

See the Installation and Troubleshooting Knowledge Base Verifying and Installing Prerequisites sections for complete instructions and download links.

  • Windows LogoOperating System - Windows® 10/8/7/Vista - All versions of Windows 10/8/7/Vista - x64 (64bit), x86(32bit) and "N" editions for all versions. (See a few exceptions.)
  • Microsoft .Net Framework 4.6 - Should come pre-installed on Win10 computers. On Windows 8 or earlier, you may need to install .Net 4.6 separately (Free download). Do not uninstall previous versions of .Net unless you have a reason to do so. They are meant to reside side by side and you may disable another program by uninstalling a previous version of .Net.
  • Codec - The standard Windows Media Foundation codecs are quite deficient in their support of extended displays and non-Microsoft video formats (including popular ones like MP4, MOV, FLV, etc). This can cause videos to freeze up when played on a secondary display (showing a blank screen or freeze on frame 1). You will almost certianly need to install a better codec package. We highly recommend the KLite Codec Package (Full or Mega variant. It's free!). If you have a professional grade codec package installed, you may be able to skip this pre-req.
  • Microsoft Windows Media Player (version 11, 12 or later) - Windows Media Player 12 (WMP) is included with the installation of most Windows versions and editions. However, you may need to Turn-On The Feature. Version 11 or 10 should also work. All of our testing is currently done with WMP version 12.
