System Requirements

Requirements for Reflection X can vary, depending on your hardware and other software components present.

Hardware requirements and supported operating systems

Processor 1 GHz, 64-bit (2 GHz or higher dual-core recommended)
System memory (RAM) 2 GB (4 GB recommended)
Operating system and platform One of the following:
Microsoft Windows 11 Pro or Enterprise (64-bit)

Microsoft Windows Server 2016 with Remote Desktop Services, for multi-user environments

Reflection X requires Java 11. By default, Reflection X installs and uses a private Java Runtime Environment (JRE). This installed JRE is correctly configured to fully support all Reflection X features. It is also possible to configure Reflection X running on Windows to use a different JRE.

Prerequisite software — Microsoft .NET Framework

Reflection Desktop requires .NET Framework 4.8 or later. On desktop systems, If the required .NET Framework isn't installed, the Reflection Setup program installs version 4.8. On Microsoft Windows servers, the .NET Framework must be manually installed if version 4.8 or later is not installed.

If you install Reflection directly with MSI and the product features you install do not require .NET 4.8, you can add the SKIPDOTNET=1 property to the command line to bypass this test condition.

Microsoft Windows Installer 4.5

The Microsoft Windows Installer (MSI) version 4.5 is distributed with Reflection X.
