ContextCapture and ContextCapture Center natively run in Windows 8.1 &10 - 64 Bit environments
The minimum hardware requirements are:
Ideally a recent desktop computer running under Microsoft Windows 8.1 or 10 Professional 64-bit with at least 32 GB of RAM, an 8-core CPU and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card. Please contact the technical support team to design more powerful configurations (GeForce RTX TITAN, Quadro, bi-Xeon, etc.)
Please note that ContextCapture & ContextCapture Center takes advantage of multiple GPU architecture.
Input, working and output data should preferably be stored on fast storage devices (fast HDD, SSD, SAN). For file sharing, we recommend a >1-Gigabit Ethernet network

About Remote desktop connectionContextCapture Engine cannot work through a Remote Desktop Connection because hardware acceleration is disabled. However you can use VNC or a remote administration software like TeamViewer.
About Windows sessionSwitching Windows user while ContextCapture Engine is running will cause running computations to fail because hardware acceleration is disabled when the user is not connected.
About paths with non-ASCII charactersContextCapture does not support paths with non-ASCII characters. All specified input and output file paths must use only ASCII.
