BSD SpecLink-E (SLE) can be installed on a standalone computer for individual use or on a network for multiple users. The network configuration limits the number of simultaneous users based on the subscription purchased. For the Professional Edition the setup package offers a standalone option and a network configuration option. For Corporate Edition you can only install a network configuration. All the network options also require the Client Software Setup for each workstation on which the software is to be used. No other software is required to use BSD SpecLink-E. Formatting and printing of sections, project table of contents, and reports of project requirements all can be accomplished from within the program. If desired, SpecLink-E files may be exported as Rich Text Format (.rtf) or Microsoft Word 1997-2003 (.doc) for editing with a word processor.
Unlimited technical support is included in your subscription to BSD SpecLink-E. For assistance in installing or using SpecLink-E:Call toll-free 800-266-7732 or 404-365-9226

*Currently, BSD does not support SpecLink-E installation with Windows 2012 essentials in combination with Office 365.
**Preferred Server and Standalone configuration: 64-bit operating system, and a dual core or equivalent processor. For our Corporate users we have found that 4 GB of RAM on the server devoted to SpecLink-E is sufficient for 2 concurrent users. To maintain performance we recommend that an additional 2 GB of RAM be installed for each additional concurrent user.
***Since Microsoft is discontinuing support for XP, there may be some unforeseen circumstances and instability in the future with regards to running software on Windows XP.
