    The largest memory requirement of EFILive is when loading large log files, here's some numbers to help put it into perspective...
    The EFILive software only uses about 200MB when displaying a 500,000 frame log file. A 500,000 frame log file is about 3.5 hours of continuous data logging.

    I just recommended 8GB because Windows itself works better/smoother/faster with more memory.

    Having trouble installing v7.5 on a microsoft surface pro 2 using windows 8.1. Downloads the whole way, then comes up 'This App can't run on your PC' when you click the setup download. What are we doing wrong?

    You have Windows SmartScreen enabled. Either reduce the level in the Windows OS or right click the setup file, at the very bottom you'll see a "Security" section. Check the "Unblock" checkbox, click OK, double click to run. It will work just fine. You will need to do this on any future updates (and for a bunch of other apps).

    I find it's a headache, so I personally disable it. I would not recommend this unless you are an experienced user who knows how to deal with potential virus/malware issues.


    Good to know those are the minimum requirements! 100MB of RAM, don't get too crazy here Paul!

    No one should ever need more than 640KB on their PC

    Remember in the late 1970's when the TRS80 came with 4KB RAM, and Tandy/RS offered an upgrade to 16KB... everyone said "why do you need so much memory?"
