System requirements

Ensure that your servers meet the software requirements for DSX Desktop.

Software requirements

DSX Desktop supports the following operating systems:

  • macOS Sierra
  • Microsoft Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10
  • Linux platforms: Ubuntu, Debian, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, Fedora

Docker requirements

A Docker is required as a development environment to run the DSX Desktop application. If you run the DSX Desktop installation without a Docker on your desktop, you will receive instructions to install one. After the Docker is installed, you can accept software updates for it independent of DSX Desktop.

Windows only: If you are using Docker Toolbox on Windows 8 or 10, then it is recommended you upgrade to Docker on Windows for best performance. If you opt to install Docker Toolbox, ensure you complete the following steps:

  • During the installation of Docker Toolbox, accept the default components to install VirtualBox too.
  • You must enable Virtualization Technology (VT-X) on your BIOS. For example, see How to enable Virtualization Technology (VT-X) in Lenovo, idea, ThinkPad and ThinkCentre system.
  • If you opted not to install the Docker in the default path, append your Docker directory path to your PATH environment variable to prevent a registry logging error (you might need to temporarily disable your firewall if the problem persists).
