  • Windows 10 (x64)
  • x86–64 bit based processor (or higher)
  • Pentium 1.4GHz (or AMD equivalent—1.3GHz or higher)
  • 2GB RAM
  • Windows Media Player
  • Recommended: video card with 2GB dedicated memory.

Mac: macOS 10.14 or higher

Why no hardware requirements for Mac? Due to Apple’s control of the hardware for Macintosh computers, your hardware will generally be adequate to run Proclaim if your Mac supports the minimum required macOS version.

Note: There is no officially supported version of Proclaim for Apple M1. Most things work as expected, but should you choose to run Proclaim on a computer with an M1 chip, you may run into issues that will not be resolved until we release a compatible version.

Recently Dropped Support

By the end of July 2020, Proclaim will officially drop support for the following operating systems:

  • Windows 7 SP 1
  • Windows 8.1
  • 32-bit versions of Windows 10
  • OS X 10.11 “El Capitan”
  • macOS 10.12 “Sierra”
  • macOS 10.13 “High Sierra”

What does this mean for you?

You should check the computers you use for Proclaim, and ensure you are running an OS newer than the ones listed above. Microsoft has ended support for Windows 7 and lists steps on how to upgrade to Windows 10 on their site. Most Macs newer than 2012 can get a free upgrade to macOS 10.14 “Mojave”. 

What will happen if I cannot update?

By the end of July 2020, Proclaim running on the above operating systems will be considered unsupported. Unsupported means Proclaim will no longer receive updates. Additionally, presentations and settings created in an unsupported version may not sync to the latest versions of the software.
