TheSky6 is designed to run on the following operating systems: Windows 98, Windows ME,Windows NT4 (SP 6a required), Windows 2000, Windows XP Home, Windows XP Professional. TheSky6 does NOT run under Windows 95. At least 200MB of disk space is required to install TheSky6 Student Edition and about 1GB for the Serious Astronomer Edition. Over 3GB is required for full installation of TheSky6 Professional Edition.
