System requirements for Royal Server

Supported Operating Systems

  • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Windows Server 2012
  • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • (other/older versions might work, but are not fully tested by us)


Royal Server requires the following software to run:

.NET framework 4.5.1


PowerShell module


The PowerShell module requires PowerShell 4 to be installed. More information how PowerShell 4 can be installed can be found at http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/21016.how-to-install-windows-powershell-4-0.aspx


Memory Consumption

Royal Server requires around 70mb after a clean start and does not hold any state in memory. The additional memory consumption is heavily dependent on the queries it gets from the Management Endpoint component. E.g. the query of a specific Windows Service requires a lot less memory than 10.000 entries of the EventLog.


CPU Consumption

The CPU consumption when just running (no queries executed) is almost 0 - but heavily depends on the number of objects it returns to its clients. 

Disk Space Consumption

Royal Server takes around 90MB for the initial installation and only requires more disk space for logging (if configured).
