      Important: Due to a difference in system resources, FPSP performs significantly better on a 64-bit operating system (OS) than on a 32-bit OS. If your organization expects to have large capacity requirements on SharePoint server, it is recommended that you install the 64-bit OS and a 64-bit SharePoint front-end server before installing FPSP.
      • Microsoft Windows Server 2003 SP2 (Standard, Enterprise, Datacenter, or Web Edition), Microsoft Windows Server 2008, or Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2.
      • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.
      • Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) 6.0 SP1.
      • Internet Information Services (IIS) in IIS 6.0 worker process isolation mode.
      • Microsoft Chart Controls for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5. If these controls are not already present, they will be installed during the FPSP installation process.
      • Windows PowerShell 1.0.
      • NTFS file system.
      • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2010, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 SP1, or Microsoft SharePoint Foundation version 3 SP1.
      • Microsoft Filter Pack 2.0
      • 2 gigabytes (GB) of free memory** in addition to that required to run SharePoint server. For more information about the memory requirements for running SharePoint server, consult your SharePoint server planning documentation.

      * If both the Exchange and SharePoint products are installed on the same server, only Forefront for Exchange Server can be installed, to protect Exchange.
      ** Less memory is required if Intelligent Engine Management (IEM) is not enabled and fewer than 5 engines are selected (approximately 250 MB of memory per engine).
