Determine Your Setup

Single Machine

For small CORI² practice sites with only a few endoscopists, it may be easiest to set up a single CORI² computer to act as both client and server. For this type of setup, identify one machine that meets the server system requirements.

Client – Server

For most organizations it is easier to set up a single computer to act as the application server for CORI² as well as the database server for Microsoft SQL Server, the database engine that CORI² relies on. Multiple client computers are then installed, from which the users of the CORI² software can enter and retrieve data that is stored on the server computer.

Client – Application Server – Database Server

If your organization already has, or wants to setup a dedicated Microsoft SQL Server database server, we can install the CORI² database onto this machine. In addition to the database server, an application server and multiple client computers will be required. In this scenario, SQL Server need only be present on the database server, not on the application server.

Client Computer System Requirements

1 GB of RAM or more
300 MB of available Hard Drive space (includes all required software)
An active network (TCP/IP) connection to the Server computer

Microsoft .Net Framework version 4


1024 x 768 or above screen resolution
Read and Write access to C:\Program Files(x86)\CORI²
Windows 7/8/10 - User Access Control must be disabled

Server Computer System Requirements


2 GHz dual core processor, minimum
1 GB of RAM (2 GB is needed if database is on same computer)
40 GB of available hard drive space, perhaps more depending on procedure volume and images

Broadband internet connection


Microsoft Windows 7, 8, 10 or Windows Server 2008 or newer
Microsoft SQL Server 2005, 2008, 2012
Microsoft .Net Framework version 4

Fax Server Requirements

Required only if automatic faxing will be implemented in CORI²


Fax Modem compatible with Microsoft Windows Fax Services
Available analog phone line (modem line)


Microsoft Windows 2008 Server or newer
Windows 7, 8, 10 can be fax server if modem is on the same computer as CORI² server
