Full PigCom Installation


With the launch of Microsoft Windows Vista®, it was necessary to update the underlying Microsoft technology on which PigCom is based (Microsoft Access and Microsoft SQL server). As Windows software has developed, so have the PigCom installation options. These now provide for 64 bit versions of the operating system. Further to this, with Office 2010 to Office 2016, there are also 64bit versions of office. As 32 bit and 64 bit Office versions cannot co-exist on the same machine, we also needed to accomodate those people who have chosen (against Microsoft's own advice) to install the 64 bit office version.

Windows 7®

Windows 7 appears to be the natural successor to the highly successful Windows XP. Still popular on new business PCs, this operating system is fully compatible "out of the box" with PigCom installations below for either 32-bit or 64 bit versions. Like all versions of Windows since Vista®, User Access Controls (UAC) now mean that the software has to be "Run As Administrator" for the initial start-up to allow correct licensing.

Windows 8®/8.1®

Whilst the installations below are fully compatible with Windows 8, a pre-requisite for successful installtion is that "Microsoft dot net 3.5" needs to be installed prior to trying to install PigCom. Windows 8 comes with "Microsoft dot net 4.5" installed by default, but "Microsoft dot net 3.5" is available from the installation media (DVD) or from the Microsoft website.

Please visit the Microsoft website for further details on how to do this.

Like all versions of Windows since Vista®, User Access Controls (UAC) now mean that the software has to be "Run As Administrator" for the initial start-up to allow correct licensing.

Windows 10®

The installations below are fully compatible with Windows 10 as this operating system has "Microsoft dot net 3.5" installed by default.

Like all versions of Windows since Vista®, User Access Controls (UAC) now mean that the software has to be "Run As Administrator" for the initial start-up to allow correct licensing.

32 Bit Windows

Please contact us if you need the PigCom installation for Windows XP. As Windows XP support has been withdrawn by Microsoft, this version is now only available on request.

  • The Windows Vista/7/8/8.1/10 version is available HERE.

64 Bit Windows

The installation version which is suitable for you depends on which version of Microsoft Office you have installed on your PC. We recommend the 32-bit Office installation on 64-bit Windows as 3rd party tools do not work with 64bit office and this currently includes the graphing tools used by PigCom. You need to select the version which matches any pre-installed version of office on your PC.
  • For 32-Bit installations of Office (recommended) the installation is available HERE.
  • For 64-Bit installations of Office the installation is available HERE.

For instructions on how to determine which versions of the operating system you are currently using, please visit our Support/frequently asked questions (FAQ) page HERE.
