Juris System Requirements

An Important Note about Juris® System and Software Recommendations

The system and software recommendations provided here are guidelines, and we do not guarantee a specific level of performance. These recommendations may not have been explicitly evaluated in a formal test environment, but represent a composite of specifications based on formal testing, the experience of our developers and engineers, and interactions with our customers. These specifications represent a likely environment within which our software will operate satisfactorily.

Please contact Juris Customer Support if you or your technician have questions.

Windows Terminal Services

Note: Juris version 2.5 and subsequent versions are supported. Problems that occur only in the WTS environment are treated as product defects and will be prioritized and addressed in the Juris software following normal defect resolution procedures. Juris version 2.4 and prior versions are supported in a limited capacity. Problems that occur must be tested and reproduced in the network environment. We do not provide technical support for any issues that we cannot recreate outside of the Terminal Server enviroment. For all supported versions, LexisNexis® support is limited to operation of the Juris products and does not provide support for the installation, configuration, and administration of Terminal Server environments themselves.

Citrix

Note: Juris products are not thin client applications and require additional memory when you run the products on the server. You might need to purchase multiple servers to distribute the users and balance memory load. Remote technology requires specialized technical resources to install and configure. If you have difficulties with the setup, contact a vendor for additional support.

Thin Clients

Note: Juris products have not been tested in or designed for any thin client environment except Terminal Services. Running the Juris application in a non-thin client environment may result in unknown consequences.

Note:

LexisNexis requires that the Juris database server be a separate device from any computer performing as a file and print server, domain controller, or Exchange server. This is particularly relevant with Small Business Server. Additional Juris installation information is available in the installation guides.

The Juris database does not need a dedicated database server if your firm has multiple applications using the same database engine. Additional applications/databases on the SQL Server may significantly increase the memory and processor requirements.

Additional Recommendations:

  • The Juris software requires Microsoft Excel for Office 2002 or greater on workstations used to print financial statements.
  • The Juris software requires a MAPI-compliant mail transport system to use the built-in email features.
  • We recommend that you use laser printers for all printing to get design-level performance, and we require them for check printing.
  • We strongly recommend access to the internet and to a recordable CD-R/DVD-R because it significantly enhances our ability to provide you support.
