    Anyone here running 3cx on XP? We have a need for a tiny remote site (3 users, 4 phones). There isnt a budget for a new server but they do have a fairly new dual core Windows XP box running 4GB of ram.

    Is there any reason that 3cx wont run on an XP box? Is Win Server a requirement at all?

    Should run just fine. During the install you can choose the Abyss web server or you can install IIS for XP and use that. Either way it should run just fine.

    It used to be the case, that XP Pro was required. There was a discussion a while back, that was a bit inconclusive, as to whether it would run on the XP home version.

    I run it on an Atom (N270) , 2 GB memory 160GB HD, XP Pro, with never an issue.

    I have run the system on xp pro and xp home editions. I normally go with the abyss web server as it will allow more connections. XP is a good choice for budget minded customers with scheduled maintenance windows.
