Microsoft SharePoint (optional) (Optional)
Iron Speed Designer creates Microsoft SharePoint 2007 and 2010 web applications.

Iron Speed Designer simulates the Microsoft SharePoint development environment during development and requires the Microsoft.SharePoint.DLL to be installed in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC). The Microsoft SharePoint server is not required for development, but is required for deployment. We strongly recommend you do not install both Iron Speed Designer and the Microsoft SharePoint server on the same machine.

Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 SP1 or Visual Studio 2010 and Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 are required on your development system to create the SharePoint Solution Package (WSP) needed for deployment.

Note:
(a) Microsoft SharePoint 2007 and 2010 supports only .NET Framework 3.5 and will not function properly with .NET Framework 4.0.
(b) SQL Server Compact Edition: only version 4.0 is supported.
(c) Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 is not supported.
System speed Iron Speed Designer requires a minimum of 600 MHz with 1 GHz recommended.
System memory Iron Speed Designer requires a minimum of 8 GB of memory and 16 GB is recommended for large applications. There are additional requirements if the development machine also has a database (e.g., Microsoft SQL Server) and an IDE (e.g., Microsoft Visual Studio .NET) installed.
System disk space Approximately 500 MB of disk space is required.
