and operating system support.

For details on system requirements for Geosoft software, including operating system support, see the requirements section for your Geosoft software version.

Oasis montaj and Target Requirements

ArcGIS Extensions Requirements

Visit Geosoft Data Support to learn more about supported data formats.


Oasis montaj and Target

See below the recommended hardware and software requirements for customers running Target, Oasis montaj and montaj extensions. 

+ Version 9.4

Operating System

  • Windows 10 (64-bit) - Recommended.
  • Windows 8.1 (64-bit)
  • Windows 7 SP1 (64-bit)
Disk Drive Performance High performance SSD drives are recommended for both the OS drive and the data drive. We recommend an M.2 SSD drive for the operating system and a large 1TB (or larger) SSD drive for data storage.
CPU

A multi-core Intel i5 or i7, or an AMD A10 or FX CPU is recommended.

RAM

8-16 GB recommended, 4 GB minimum required.

Graphics

A graphics card supporting OpenGL 3.3 is needed to run with hardware acceleration. Software based graphics rendering at much lower performance levels are supported for systems without an OpenGL 3.3 card. You will need to ensure that you have the latest driver for your video card installed. Updating the driver from within Windows may not be sufficient so you should download the latest driver directly from your Computer Manufacturer's website. If you require assistance please contact your IT Department or Geosoft Support.

The minimum graphics cards required for hardware acceleration would be:

  • Intel: HD Graphics, 4000 (Intel HD Graphics 2000 and 3000 do not support OpenGL 3.3)
  • NVidia: Any card with OpenGL 3.3 support
  • AMD: Any card with OpenGL 3.3. support

Recommended graphics cards for better performance would be:

  • Intel: HD Graphics 6000 or 520
  • NVidia: OpenGL 4.0 Support & 4GB RAM
  • AMD: OpenGL 4.0 Support & 4GB RAM
Monitors  Our software is compatible with high resolution monitors  (4K, etc) via Windows Display scaling.  However our software is not DPI aware.
GPU Computing

If you wish to improve your computation time by using your GPU, a more advanced graphics cards is required. The minimum cards that provide benefits over using your CPU are:

  • AMD:  R7 240, HD7700
  • NVidia: Quadro K620, GeForce GTX 570

For substantial performance gains, we recommend:

  • AMD: R9 270
  • NVIDIA: : Quadro 4000, GeForce GTX 750
Printer/Plotters Any Windows® supported colour printer. Hewlett Packard® large-format ink-jet plotters are recommended.
Installation Permissions When installing, you MUST be logged in with Administrator permissions.
Installation Disk Space 2 GB or more of free space on the Program Files drive is required for the installation process.
Data Disk Space Data disk space depends on the volume of project data to be processed and the printer driver you are using. We recommend 500 GB to 1 TB, minimum 50 GB.
Internet

Internet Connection: To use VOXI, we recommend a medium to high-speed internet connection (512Kbps upload and 1Mbps download or higher). The faster your internet connection, the faster you will be able to upload your modelling information to the VOXI cloud servers and download your results.

Internet Browser: To use the internet capabilities in Oasis montaj or Target, you will need to install Internet Explorer 8.0 or later. This does not mean that you have to have Internet Explorer as your default browser; Oasis montaj and Target just use the internet connection technology supplied in IE8.

Supporting Software

The following software prerequisites are required and will be downloaded and installed if not present:

  • Microsoft .NET 4.5.2

Oasis Montaj and Target 9.3 support Microsoft ODBC Driver 11 and earlier for SQL Server.

Geosoft OS support policy

During the support period for a version of Windows, Geosoft will test our software to ensure that it works on that version of Windows. The Geosoft Support teams will have access to and be trained on supporting customers on the OS.

Some Geosoft software installations may require a specific Windows service pack version, or have a certain limitations (32 or 64 bit support). For example, Oasis montaj 7.2 requires Windows XP SP3. For specific details, see the system requirements section for your Geosoft software version.

Microsoft mainstream and extended support policy

The Microsoft Support Lifecycle Policy FAQ outlines their basic policy: Mainstream support is provided for 5 years or for 2 years after the next successive OS is released. After this period, the OS enters an Extended support cycle. The important factor about the extended support period is that no ports are made of new technology into the OS. For example, the .NET 3.5 framework will not be ported to an older OS than Windows XP
