System Requirements

The Himalayan Database requires a PC running Windows XP or Windows 7, 8, 8.1 or 10 and a monitor screen resolution of 1024 x 768 or greater. The program will run on earlier Windows systems such as Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000 or Vista, but they are not recommended.

The Himalayan Database is a Microsoft Visual Foxpro 9 program.

Macintosh Installation

The original Himalayan Database that was published in 2004 on CD-Rom could run natively on older PowerPC Macintosh computers running OS 8.6, 9.0 or OS X in Classic mode (OS 10.4 or earlier). This version is no longer supported as Power Macintosh computers are now outdated.

In January 2006, Apple released a new series of Macintosh computers that used the Intel dual-core processor, and soon thereafter released Boot Camp, which allowed these Intel-based Macs to run Windows XP natively. This and other more elegant solutions developed by other third-party vendors such as Parallels (www.parallels.com) and Fusion (www.vmware.com) now enable Intel-based Macs to run the Windows version of the Himalayan Database. These solutions also require the installation of a Windows operating system.

CrossOver (www.codeweavers.com) is a program that allows you to run many popular Windows programs on an Intel-based Macintosh without installing the Windows operating system. The Himalayan Database is compatible with CrossOver and may be used with CrossOver on your Mac. See

  • Using CrossOver for the Mac with the Himalayan Database

    for further details.

    Wine is an open-sourced software system that allows you to run many popular Windows programs on an Intel-based Macintosh (using OS X 10.6 or higher) without installing the Windows operating system. The Himalayan Database is compatible with Wine and is implemented through the WineBottler application. See

    for further details.
