System Requirements

The following is a list of minimum recommended system requirements to successfully install and run Amigo Pos 8: 

Operating System

Microsoft® Windows 10 (32- or 64-bit)
Microsoft® Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 (32- or 64-bit)1
Microsoft® Windows  Embedded 8 or 8.1 (32- or 64-bit)2
Microsoft® Windows Embedded PosReady 7 32- or 64-bit with Service Pack 1 and .Net 4.5 or later (.Net 4.6.2 recommended)
Microsoft® Windows 7 32- or 64-bit with Service Pack 1 and .Net 4.5 or later (.Net 4.6.2 recommended)
    1 When running Amigo Pos on a Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 tablet, the tablet must be running Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 Desktop, not Windows RT.
    2 Embedded Industry, Pro or Standard Edition only. Handheld Edition is not supported.


Hardware (Minimum Requirements - also refer to the the certified hardware page)

1GB Ram
Monitor capable of 1024x768px or better screen resolution

At least a Pentium 4 or faster processor:

  • Amigo Pos runs best on multi-core processors such as the Intel i3
  • Intel Celeron processors may require additional Ram and a strong video card for acceptable performance.
  • Single-core Atom processors are not suitable for the pos or back office, but can be used for the remote display application.



Users with more than one pos station or multiple prep printers must ensure that the pos stations (and print servers) are connected to a stable, reliable and secure Windows HomeGroup or simple Windows peer-to-peer network (not a domain). Wired networks are strongly preferred for reliability. When using the tablet server, the Wi-Fi router should be located in the dining area to avoid interference from the high speed exhaust fans and stainless steel or aluminum wall panels that are typically found in restaurant kitchens.
