Retail Management Hero Technical Requirements

Update July 2016, Retail Management Hero demo and overview:

Given the immense amount of interest in the new version of the Microsoft RMS point of sale software - now re-branded as Retail Management Hero (RMH), here are the technical requirements for RMS.
  • Windows version 7, 8.1 or 10
  • Windows server 2008+/SQL Express/SQL 2008+
  • If upgrading from RMS then you need to be on version 2.014+ of RMS
  • If upgrading from RMS then you need to be current on your annual software maintenance agreement or the RMH lane licenses are $250/lane instead of free (plus $215 per lane for year 1 software maintenance)
  • SMTP server information for setting up RMH to email receipts, etc
  • OPOS peripherals (receipt printer, etc)
  • .Net 3.5+
  • Compatible platform and terminals if using EMV and standard credit and debit card processing
The remaining memory and similar requirements are pretty basic as RMH does not need a lot of memory or a large hard drive (but does need "room to grow" as the database increases in size over time).
