System Requirements

Make sure to bring a laptop to iRU, with the software and passwords you need for access. iRU classes are conducted in FMP 16. You can download the demo version of the most recent FileMaker version for iRU, however FileMaker Pro 13, 14, 15 or 16 is fine.

You will need to bring your own computer with a copy of FileMaker® Pro 13, 14, 15 or 16 with the latest updates installed on it to iRU. All instructors will be using FMP 16. If your organization has not yet upgraded to FMP 16, that is fine. You can download the demo version of FMP 16 to use for our sessions. You may notice that screens in earlier versions different, but this will not limit your ability to learn.

Please check the version of your software prior to your arrival. You can download the latest FileMaker Pro update from the FileMaker web site. We cannot supply you with a copy of FileMaker Pro or updates. We begin the first morning assuming that everyone has FMP loaded on his or her computer.

Please note: FileMaker Pro versions earlier than 13 cannot be used for iRU courses.

Below are the minimum computer requirements to ensure success. Please read the information below carefully. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

You will need either a Macintosh or a PC laptop computer with:

  • USB port
  • power supply unit
  • a mouse (If you are bringing a laptop with a track pad that you have not used before, then please bring a mouse. With a mouse, you will be able to focus on learning and not on how to use the track pad.)

If you are bringing a PC laptop from your school, make certain that the security settings have been turned off before leaving campus. If your computer is password protected and you do not know the password, it is possible that you will not be able to install the training files on your computer.

Additionally, if you are bringing a laptop with you that you have never used before make sure you are comfortable using whatever input device is available. We strongly suggest that you bring a mouse with you if you are bringing a laptop with a track pad that you have not used before. We cannot supply these for you, and experience has shown that you will have better success with a mouse. We cannot stress enough that the best way to ensure your time is useful is to be familiar and comfortable with the equipment you are bringing with you. You do not want to be struggling with new equipment while trying to increase your skill levels.

Please note, inRESONANCE is not responsible for hardware support at the conference nor do we have computers or other equipment to loan. Failure to come prepared may result in your not being able to participate.
