Important Content Update Message
We are currently updating the OP Help Center content for the release of OP 20. OP 20 (official version 20.0.x) is the certified, 2015 Edition, version of the Office Practicum software. This is displayed in your software (Help tab > About) and in the Help Center tab labeled Version 20.0. We appreciate your patience as we continue to update all of our content.


The following Specifications and Recommendations made by Office Practicum are based solely on what has worked for our clients.
We are in no way endorsing the use of one product over another. Please consult with your IT Professional to make sure your devices meet our minimum requirements.

Windows 10 is supported on OP versions 14.6 and up.


Tip: The OP server should be solely dedicated as an Office Practicum database server. Performance, security, and management of Office Practicum is maximized when installed and running on dedicated hardware.
