IPDAS is a client/server application and links to a MSĀ® SQL Server database.

Below are the minimum technical requirements necessary to support IPDAS in your organization.

Supported Server Operating Systems:

  • Windows 2019 (Under Testing)
  • Windows 2016
  • Windows 2012 R2
  • Windows 2012
  • Windows 2008-R2
  • Windows 2008
  • 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems

SQL Server Requirements & Supported SQL Server Versions:

  • SQL Server 2017

  • SQL Server 2012
  • SQL Server 2008 R2
  • SQL Server 2008
  • 32-bit and 64-bit versions other than SQL Server Express
  • For larger firms (approximately 100 attorneys), we recommend a 64-bit version of SQL Server with 12 GB of RAM.

    The IPDAS database will typically occupy 1-5 GB of disk space (excluding back-ups) for a large firm.

Supported Client Operating Systems:

  • Windows 10 (Through 1803)
  • Windows 8/8.1

  • MS Word 2007
  • 32-bit and 64-bit
  • Note: 64-bit versions of Office are supported with the exception of one optional feature (Add to EFW)

    Note: MS Word 365 will be supported while its current version is supported. As of July 2018, that version is Office 2016. We plan to support future versions of Office shortly after their release, but not necessarily on the same schedule that Office 365 offers them.

Supported Document Management Systems:

  • iManage DeskSite, WorkSite, and FileSite
  • Note: At this time, only version 10 of the server is supported. Compatibility with version 10 of the client is still under development.

  • Internet Explorer (versions 8-11)
  • IPDAS Web Tools supports Internet Explorer 11 and the latest versions of Mozilla Firefox & Google Chrome as well

We support all versions of Adobe Acrobat and Reader supported by the USPTO.

We recommend that user workstations running Windows 7 or later have 2 GB of RAM, although IPDAS can function with far less.
