With SilverFast 8.8 support for some older operating systems is discontinued:

All 32-bit operating systems. The 2-gigabyte-per-process memory limit is increasingly impractical for high-end image processing. Moreover, 32-bit computers tend to be older, slower machines, so the user experience is suboptimal for a computing-intensive application like SilverFast 8. (Note that Apple's Aperture® 3.3 and Adobe's Lightroom® 4 and Photoshop® CS6 have already dropped 32-bit support.)

OS X 10.5/10.6 (Snow Leopard). Due to upgrades in development tools, system libraries, programming languages, and our code base it might not be possible to continue backward compatibility for OS X 10.5/10.6. Apple® appears to have stopped security updates for Snow Leopard, and other vendors (including Adobe®) are already specifying 10.7 (Lion) in the system requirements for their latest products. (Snow Leopard was almost five years ago.)

Windows XP®. See discussion above regarding 32-bit operating systems. The vast majority of XP deployments are 32-bit; 64-bit XP has a minuscule market share. (Note that XP support was already dropped in Adobe's Lightroom 4, and the next version of Photoshop will follow suit. Moreover, Microsoft® has officially dropped support for Windows XP.)

Most of our professional and serious amateur users have already moved to recent-generation 64-bit operating systems, so we do not expect a large number of users to be impacted if we drop support for 32-bit operating systems. For those who are still using one of these older systems, we encourage you to start planning for a migration to a newer, 64-bit operating system.

Mínimo:
  • Windows XP, Windows 2000: 256 MB RAM, 500 MB espaço livre no disco rígido
  • Windows 98SE, ME: 128 MB RAM, 500 MB livres no disco rígido
  • Macintosh OS X 10.1.5 ou superior: 256 MB RAM, 500 MB livres no disco rígido
  • Mac OS 9.2.2: 128 MB RAM, 500 MB livres no disco rígido
Recomendado:
  • Windows XP com Service Pack 2 ou superior, Windows 2000 com SP 4, 512-2048 MB RAM, mínimo de 2 GB de espaço livre no disco rígido
  • Macintosh OS X 10.3 - 10.6, 512-2048 MB RAM, mínimo de 2 GB de espaço livre no disco rígido

Para SilverFast 6.5 é necessário Windows 2000, Windows XP ou Macintosh OS-X 10.3 ou superior.

Estas são indicações genéricas! Verifique para o seu produto SilverFast específico e, conforme o caso, o seu hardware de processamento de imagens (scanner, câmara digital) se poderá trabalhar com o seu sistema operacional e que tipo de interface e funções (p.ex. unidade de transparência, etc.) são suportadas.

Sob Windows, Scanners SCSI necessitam do driver ASPI Layer correto. Mac OS X Panther (10.3) e Tiger (10.4) têm, em comparação aos OS X 10.2.8 (Jaguar) e OS 9.2.2, um suporte deficiente pelas placas controladoras SCSI (p.ex. problemas com Adaptec). Modelos Mac atuais possuem conectores PCI-X, nas quais controladoras SCSI mais antigas não encaixam. Ainda, pode ser que através do adaptadores Firewire/SCSI não se consiga uma comunicação suficientemente estável.

SilverFast pode ser instalado como Photoshop plugin e/ou TWAIN plugin. Não existe uma variante TWAIN para todos os sistemas operacionais.

O Photoshop plugin requer Photoshop 5.5 ou superior e trabalha também com CS 2 e todas as versões de Photoshop Elements. Não pode ser usado com Corel Painter.

O SilverFast TWAIN plugin oferece digitalização direta para dentro de outros aplicativos compatíveis com TWAIN (p.ex. Adobe Acrobat 4 e 5, JASC Paintshop Pro 8.10 ou superior, Corel PhotoPaint 10, GIMP 2.0 ou superior, IrfanView, etc.). Nem todos os aplicativos gráficos ou OCR são plenamente compatíveis com TWAIN e podem eventualmente levar a problemas (p.ex. OmniPage, Ulead PhotoImpact 10 com drivers Microtek).

Aproveite a oportunidade de testar uma versão demo de SilverFast antes de comprar. Assim, você pode verificar antes se SilverFast funciona no seu computador e atende às suas expectativas.
