Installing required software

Ricoh ProcessDirector requires this software on the primary computer:

  • A supported Windows operating system

These features require additional software:

  • PitStop Connect

    Enfocus PitStop Server 10 or higher on the primary computer.

  • Impostrip Connect

    Ultimate Impostrip OnDemand Digital Automation 7 or higher on the primary computer.

      Note:
    • If your Windows computer runs in a language other than English, do not install Ultimate Impostrip OnDemand Digital Automation in the default install directory. The program does not work properly with non-English default install paths. We recommend installing Ultimate Impostrip OnDemand Digital Automation in C:\ImpostripOnDemand on non-English Windows computers.
  • Designer

    Quadient Inspire V8 or V9.

  • The AFP Support feature includes Ricoh Visual Workbench , which installs a separate user interface on the primary computer. That user interface can be accessed from the primary computer or from the Administration page.

    To access the user interface from the Administration page, click the Administration tab, then select SystemVisual Workbench. Java 1.7 or later must be installed on your client workstation to support the download of the Visual Workbench program to your computer.

  • Ricoh Transform features

    WorldType Fonts version 8.13 for Ricoh SAP to AFP files to transform correctly when IS/3 support is enabled.

    Java Runtime Environment 1.4 or higher.

  • Avanti Slingshot Connect

    Avanti Slingshot Version 6.2014 or higher on the primary computer.

Other required software:

  • A supported Web browser

    A Web browser is required to open the Ricoh ProcessDirector user interface, so it is required on any system that is used to access the user interface.

  • A PDF viewer

    A PDF viewer is used inside the Ricoh ProcessDirector user interface to display the contents of print jobs. It should be installed on any system that is used to access the user interface, but it is not required. If you open the user interface from a computer that does not have a PDF viewer installed, you see an error message if you try to view a job. Using Adobe Reader is recommended as it provides the most functionality.
