LogTag Analyzer System Requirements


This article gives the system requirements for the LogTag Analyzer software. For information about Downloading the LogTag software check that article.

To ensure that the Analyzer software will work on your computer following minimum specifications are required:

  • PC capable of running Windows® 7 or later, or Windows® 2008 Server or later
    For installation on older systems, please refer to this instruction
  • 60MB free disk space (plus 30MB if .NET is not yet installed)
  • Internet Explorer 8.0 or later
  • 1 available serial port or 1 available USB port, depending on purchased interface
  • 1024 x 768, or higher, screen resolution.
  • 256 screen colours

The recommended specifications are:

  • Processor equivalent to Pentium IV or later
  • 512MB of available RAM
  • Internet Explorer 9.0 or later
  • 65535 (16bit), or more, screen colours.

If you are unsure of your computer's specifications, please refer to your operating system's documentation or help function.


If you are working on an Intel-based Mac you can use LogTag Analyzer versions 2.0r17 and later, however you must use a virtual machine software such as VirtualBox, VMWare Fusion, Parallel Desktop or similar. You can find a summary of the steps in the document about “Installing LogTag® Analyzer on an Apple Mac" using VirtualBox, which you can download from here.


Unfortunately, there is no recommended solution for Apple M1 Macs.



For Linux users we unfortunately can’t recommend installation of the LogTag Analyzer software on Linux using WINE. Some users have reported success using these instructions, this is however experimental and LogTag Recorders can only offer limited support. We will continue to monitor the suitability of WINE for LogTag® Analyzer and will publish new information as required.


You can use a Virtual Machine via VirtualBox.



You can use LogTag Analyzer in a Citrix environment, however there are certain restrictions. For more information, have a look at this document.



Our software isn't compatible with the Chrome OS (Operating System). Chromebooks do not actually have a Windows OS, they only work with web applications, any actual applications have to be specifically written for Chrome OS in order to run on a Chromebook. 

USB 3.0

At this stage all major computer manufacturers provide USB 3.0 ports mainly to support storage devices such as external hard drives with higher speed requirements. On some computers driver incompatibilities between some of the controlling hardware and the LogTag Interface Cradle drivers could exist, which is unfortunately outside LogTag Recorders control.

Although we have tested LogTag Interface Cradles on USB 3.0 ports of different computer manufacturers without issues we would still advise using USB 2.0 ports where available. There is no advantage of using LogTag Interface Cradles on a USB 3.0 port.
