WebDocs Windows is an Enterprise Content Management (ECM) application for Windows. It requires IIS and SQL Server, but they do not need to reside on the same server necessarily. A suite of optional utilities that interact and integrate with WebDocs is available, allowing WebDocs to integrate with existing business applications. Exit points allow for customization, and a sample Visual Studio 2010 project is available upon request.
A PDF of these server requirements is also available here for downloading.
Note: If you are running WebDocs Windows on a VM, the server requirements apply to the VM itself. The WebDocs VM will use the maximum resources in the hardware requirements. The server that this VM is running on must have additional available hardware resources that meet the VM's hardware requirements, in order to dedicate these resources fully to the WebDocs VM.
Note: SQL Server 2012 removed several deprecated syntax commands that required minor changes to WebDocs. To ensure SQL Server 2012 compatibility, upgrade to WebDocs version 1.5.0 or above.
Note: Internet Explorer compatability mode is not supported.
Note: RJS Software recommends that you use a full version of SQL Server. SQL Server Express has the following limitations:
You'll want to consider using a non-EXPRESS version of SQL Server as your volume of documents grows. When installing on a server with SQL Server Express, specify "localhost\SQLEXPRESS" for the database server host info instead of just "localhost". This is because SQL Server supports multiple named server instances on a single PC.
Note: If your documents are in color, have many images, or have a high resolution (for example: 600 DPI), you will need to estimate more KB per page. Contact RJS Software to discuss how to calculate your storage needs.
For example: If you will have 1,000,000 one-page documents at an average size of 50 KB per page, the documents themselves will total 50 GB. Windows Server 2012 and Microsoft SQL Server 2012 require a minimum of 50 GB. The system needs at least 10% of its total disk space free or else disk performance can suffer. So the minimum hard-drive space needed is 110 GB.
RJS Software strongly recommends that you use the Hardware Requirements above. If you are storing less than 100K documents and will have less than 25 concurrent WebDocs users, you may have special low-volume needs. Contact RJS Software first to confirm that the low-volume requirements meet your needs.
WebDocs Windows installs with a 30-day demo license. If you require an extension, please contact RJS Technical Support with the WebDocs Windows Code Entry and Computer ID numbers. From the Windows Start menu, navigate to Programs > RJS Software > WebDocs - WebDocs License and select WebDocs License. The Code Entry and Computer ID numbers display at the top.
To transfer WebDocs Windows to a new computer, please contact RJS Technical Support with the WebDocs Windows Code Entry and Computer ID numbers of both the computer you are planning to uninstall WebDocs Windows from as well as the computer you have just installed WebDocs Windows on.
