A computer with a Microsoft 32 Bit Windows environment (e.g. Win9x, NT, 2000, XP), 3 MB free harddisk space, Intel compatible x86 Processor at least a 486 Processor (recommended Pentium 133 MHz) with 16 MB RAM (recommended 32 MB), depends on how fast it should be.

Common Controls 4.711. if you can't see the icons on the toolbars and in the menus, you'll need to install this update.

If you want to call compiled HTML help files (*.chm) from syn you'll also need HHCtrl.ocx library2, and of course an installed Internet Explorer. This library is dynamically loaded, hence it does not require IE to run, but you won't be able to view HTML Help files.

MS Script Control and the Windows Scripting Host, if you want to use scripting. You can download it from http://msdn.microsoft.com/scripting/.

We tried to run the program on a naked Windows NT 4.0 without any Servicepack and Internet Explorer, it worked just fine, except the icons on the toolbar and in the menus (the imagelist).
