Operating System

Windows® 10 Pro, Pro for Workstations, or Enterprise, 64 Bit

You must keep your Windows system updated with all Microsoft' updates to install and continue to use our software.

ConstructConnect has not tested Duct 4 on Windows 11, but there are no technical reasons it should not work. Just make sure your hardware is up to the task of running Windows and Duct 4.

CPU (Processor)


Intel i5, 2.8 GHz

Intel i7, 3.4GHz or faster



16 GB RAM (this likely will not provide acceptable performance)


32 GB RAM or more so that Windows, SQL Express, and QuoteSoft, along with any other software you run concurrently, have plenty of resources available.

Hard Drive/Storage

3 GB Hard drive space for installation and 40-100GB per year/per estimator; we recommend employing a solid state drive as they tend to have faster access times.

Microsoft SQL Express is installed with QuoteSoft products. SQL Express is limited to databases no larger than 10GB which may not meet your business needs. QuoteSoft supports Microsoft SQL 2014 Standard or Enterprise support much larger (524 petabytes) database size.

Graphics and Displays


Minimum display resolution: 1920 x 1080

1 GB of Graphics Memory (Graphics acceleration requires Direct X 11)


Multiple monitors such as 2 - 27” HD or 1 standard and 1 4K 32” or larger, or a combination - whatever your computer can handle

2GB or more of Graphics Memory (with Direct X)

Please disable your virus/malware protecting while installing your QuoteSoft products and be sure to create appropriate “exceptions” post-installation. Contact your virus/malware protection vendor for assistance.

Apple Users may run QuoteSoft products in Bootcamp - this is a separate partition from MAC OSX on which a stand-alone installation of Windows is running. This allows the user to run Windows OR MAC OSX but not both at the same time. Because this is "normal" installation of Windows, this environment is supported. Running QuoteSoft products within the MAC OSX environment (in Parallels, for example) is not supported.
