Hardware Recommendations

SIGMA runs on specific versions of Microsoft Windows (2000/NT/XP/Vista or previous). Any computer capable of running these versions of Windows will run SIGMA. To take full advantage of SIGMA, the Windows' spreadsheet program, Excel, and a word processor are useful. A Microsoft Visual C/C++ Compiler Version 6.0 will allow you to compile SIGMA-generated C programs; there is no guarantee the compiled C code will run in other operating systems.
