PLEASE NOTE: As of January 1, 2020, Microsoft no longer supports Windows 7 which means starting with the Summer 2020 term, we cannot guarantee that SimUText will run on Windows 7.
The SimUText application currently supports the following versions of Microsoft Windows:
- Windows 11
- Windows 10
- Windows 8 and 8.1
An OpenGL2.1 or DirectX 11 supported graphic card. See Unable To Run SimUText On Unsupported Or Out-Of-Date Graphics Cards for more information.
A computer with a minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 768.
(Netbooks with smaller screens are not supported, although it may be possible to change the screen resolution on some Netbooks to allow SimUText to run in a 1024x768 screen dimension as explained here.)
SimUText will not install on Surface tablets (Surface 1, 2, RT) with ARM processors. Surface Pro tablets have Intel Core processors and should be able to run SimUText with minor Windows configuration adjustments.
SimUText also cannot be installed on Windows machines that are in S Mode which only allows you to install apps from the Microsoft Store. If you opt to switch out of S Mode to install an application, you can never switch back to S Mode.
An active Internet connection is required to log in and submit answers to the system.
